Nice machine if you could handle it, repair it if there is a problem and find a good cartridge/Phono preamp to pair with the wonderful Pioneer PL-70LII. Quite complex for handling/repairing devise with a complex ToneArm with VTA and dempfing. Interconect cable is not good for Vacuum lamp RIAA and Amp-you should change it if you use such a devices and nice MC cartridge. For such a devise only most expensive MM cartridges could be used, but much better MC ones. Also you need good power transformer for 230 Volts, because Japan works on 100 Volts only and this model is made only for Japan! I changed inside the original transformation with Toridal for 230 Volts to power directly the TT. And User Manual is only in Japanese!
