Budget minded audiophiles have a winner in the new Sansui SR-212 automatic-return turntable, for not only is it made of carefully chosen precision components but it has been designed with particular emphasis on ease of operation, reliability and tonal quality.

Among a multitude of features are a stable synchronous motor, full sized aluminium alloy die-cast platter, elaborate, statically balanced S-shaped tubular tonearm with skating force canceller, quality IM cartridge, gold plated connector terminal pins, multiple suspension/insulation system to eliminate howling, and much more.

Additionally there is a manual tonearm lifter that lets you lift or lower the tonearm at any desired point over the record, independently of the automatic mechanism.

On what other medium priced turntable will you find all of these features? None, as far as we know.

Sansui scores again with the SR-212 with consumer oriented quality, price and convenience.
