Sansui FR-4060


The Sansui FR-4060 is a fully automated transcription turntable which performs with the ease and stress free operation of a first class manual but has the convenience and practicality of an automatic as well.

It effectively eliminates the one major disadvantage of the complicated changer-type turntable by employing a non-mechanical, purely electric device, the galvano-magnetic detection mechanism, to detect the end of a record and prepare the tonearm for automatic operation.

It makes it possible for the tonearm to ride completely free of stress-producing mechanical linkage systems until it is time for the automatic lead-in, return, repeat or cut operations to take over.

The FR-4060 also features an unusually sensitive S-shaped tonearm, a newly developed SV27 magnetic cartridge with superb tonal characteristics, a special low-capacitance output cable, floating mount base and platter design and many other original Sansui quality details.

Sansui has come up with a turntable to fully satisfy your specific needs.
