6/10 by albee213

Picked one up for $20 in good shape. I normally use a manual turntable and wanted to try a fully automatic one. All functions work perfectly. Tested speed, wow and flutter. Unit spins at 33.2 (-.34%) and .08 wow and flutter. That's in acceptable ranges. I would prefer tighter specs but it is almost 40 years old. Sound quality is pretty good. I am totally sold on automatic tables from now on.

Purchased new, came with an Audio-Technica VectorScan cartridge (VS225EP). Used from early 1980's through to about 1996. Got boxed up safely for a cross country move but ended up in storage until 2016. So after 20 years in a box, it all still works very well. Thanks to direct drive, no belt! :-)
Currently looking for a replacement cartridge just because of age, original one still works.

Owned mine since '83. Great, and simple to address entry level turntable. Three cartridges in since new, and never been an issue. Rock steady baby!

I bought one new in the early 80's...still have it. P-mount, though harder to get good cartridges makes everything so much easier. I'm really not sure how it could be a lot better. I get NO hum, the speed stays the same and I can really tell the difference when I change cartridges.

I've owned one of these since the early 80s and it still runs perfectly and all the buttons work. A very good sounding turntable for its class.
