Type: manual turntable

Drive: idler wheel

Speeds: 33, 45 and 78rpm

The sound of the 501 unexpectedly has much in common with CD, especially transient crispness and truly dark silences - £5250 Ken Kessler

Via Garrard 501 one can not only listen with more volume but also in a more detailed manner than with a CD - Joachim Pfeiffer
