Perfect sound begins with the Yamaha YP-400. Too bold a statement? Not when you consider that all the sounds you hear from a stereo record are influenced from the very beginning by the key component in your system - your turntable.

A imperfect turntable will impair sound quality so severely that no amount of sophisticated stereo equipment can ever restore it satisfactorily.

But the Yamaha YP-400 does in fact provide perfectly faithful reproduction of today's high standard stereo records.
