Systemdek II


The Systemdek II borrows many of the design features from the III.

This completely new concept in budget turntables provides an unsurpassed opportunity for audiophiles to experience the immense benefits that a properly engineered signal source will provide.

The outstanding Systemdek record clamp is available in a lightweight version to suit the suspension without upsetting the balance.

Finished in silver and black.

The sound was solid and well contained, with a crisp open mid-band. Pitch stability was very good, and the Systemdek II exploited the dynamics and transient attack that are present in the programme - HiFi Choice 1984
