Systemdek III


The Systemdek III turntable is an outstanding example of audiophile signal source technology.

Our listener pleasing criteria ensures that critical areas in the design are engineered beyond previous known standards and provide an unsurpassed new stable platform for disc playing systems.

The integral record clamp and concave platter add new esoteric touches to incorporate the disc in the anti-resonance design requirement.

The turntable is finished in a Nextel Suede coating.

A refined version of the original Systemdek, it was felt to be a fine turntable and still competitively priced. Easy to set up, the well finished Systemdek III is largely uncritical of arm choice - HiFi Choice 1984

turntable head shells

I have aquired a Systemdek III turntable and I am not sure what type of Turntable heads would fit on the systemdek. Does anyone help me on this... I do know this is kind of a stupid question.
