Beautiful looking and sounding manual table manufactured by CEC.

This is a very solid turntable if you can find one in good condition. I found one, changed out some electronics, upgraded the RCA wires, restored the plinth with Brazillian rosewood veneer in place of the vinyl veneer it was covered in. I got deoxIT cleanee and cleaned out the controls and lubed with faderlube.
I put a shure M44-7 cartridge and stylus on amd this is a phenomenal unit.

Recently acquired one of these hugely attractive and competent turntables, which typify the mid-to-late seventies Japanese designs of the time. Well done Hitachi. Luckily, mine is complete with original Hitachi-branded VM cartridge (an Audio Technica)and headshell. The PS-38 employs the ubiquitous Matsushita motor.

I purchased this turntable back in 1978 as part of my Hi-Fi set up. Has been great. Unit was in storage until recently when I decided to archive my record collection onto computer. On switching on I found the speed control very erratic and unstable, so after a quick google I ended up cleaning the 2 speed pots and the micro-switches and the unit is performing as new again. Great unit.
