Market/Price for PL-530

Post by ereiman » 21 Feb 2019 21:13

Hi all. I found a local, well kept PL-530 that I am wanting to purchase. I am stepping up from a Pro-Ject Essential. Was wondering what price I should be paying for it. He is currently asking $480USD for it. It is in great shape. Thoughts on pricing?

Thanks!

Hi ereiman, depending on where you are that seems a fair price for a working pl 530 in nice shape. PL 530's that have had there plinths veneered and the mechanism serviced are selling for $500 and up on Ebay. If you can just make sure it's working like it should and that the platter speed is not out of wack. I just had a Pl 530 in my shop that the platter would not hold speed. My tech had to rebuild the motor drive board and replace the micro switches which cost the owner more $$. Plus my cost of servicing the turntable. I hope this helps.
