It looks like the RFT Ziphona Decent 806 - made in the former German Democratic Republic.

as the RFT KSS0163, but a suitable replacement would be the RFT KS22
(W x H x D : 16 x 13 x 28mm).

thanks a lot. themisto462
is the tracking force fixed for the cartridge like a ceramic one? so it can only used with the original cartridge right?

Sorry, but I am absolutely not familiar with this record player. :(
When I saw your pictures, I did remember that I've had seen this record player somewhere before. As I live near the former inner German border, devices like this apper often in the classifieds in my local area... .

Regards.

Those old turntables with ceramic cartridges all tracked at what we would consider heavy downforces.
Many had some adjustability via a spring under the back of the arm.

Cheers,
Alec

What turntable is this:
I would say Micro Seiki DQ-43 with its MA-707 tonearm.

That's a Micro Sekai DQ-43. Unfortunately the arm (MA-707) is missing the sliding weight that allows for adjusting the effective tip mass. I have one, it's my backup TT. IMO it's quite attractive.

Good eye - only looked briefly at the arm so missed the absence of the sliding tracking force/variable mass sliding weight. Perhaps that's why the counterweight is so far forward. With high compliance cartridges, the slider may not be missed, but with low compliance models, it might.

Hi all, we have recently moved into a new house and the owners left a lot of furniture etc. We have come across this Garrard 301 51400/1 and are unsure of its worth or anything. It is in a large wooden box with a folding lid, but we don't know if it came like this or if the box was custom built for it. Can anyone please shed any light on this?

The 301 is very revered, and worth quite a bit in good working order. Check what amps are in the box two as you may have some nice collectable valve amps in there. Amps and turntable though need to come out of the box, google Garrard 301 plinth.

Hi Chris! I can confirm the player works perfectly and is rigged up to a rather large ancient looking speaker. Sounds great. Although it seems the RPM switch is completely stuck. How much roughly do you reckon a functioning one of these would go for? Thanks.

Even non working they fetch a lot. FYI there's one listed in the classifieds sub forum. The word that will come to mind is windfall.

That's some old, but choice, Quad equipment in there.
Obviously whoever built that was interested in "fine" equipment, aka audiophile.

Any pics of the speakers? Anyone who had quad amps and a Garrard would have connected it all to great speakers.

Hi Chris, I can get you a pic of the speaker in a couple hours.
