I've looked for the counterweight stub repair. It looks like its a pretty common problem with these tonearms. The v-block costs about 20 bucks which sucks, since its probably worn out.. I've read also that it's a rebranded Goldring Lenco b55 (light platter) with a metal idler and a L75 tonearm. Its selling for really dirt cheap, so cheap that the fuel to get to there and back would cost me more.. thats "the problem". I will sleep over it and see what happens.
Anyway, were the Lenco b55 regarded as good turntables or not so good? I am currently using an Elac 819 which sounds good for the money and I am wondering if this would be an upgrade or its the same quality as the Elac?
