Get the Clearaudio Statement, she is a beautiful pc of engineering marvel, weighs in at about 350Kg and will only set you back about US150K

I can already see the look on my wife's face when I back the truck into the driveway, unload the forklift that I need to unload the turntable that I need into the garage so I can build the addition to my house I need to support the audio gear I need to run this beautiful piece of sculpture. My needs are great ! My bank account...not so much Unhappy

It has a wringer washing machine look about it




Wonder if it washers records also...................

I have one of these. Nothing fancy, an affordable entry level turntable but it looks good. I've replaced the felt mat with leather, though.

My first proper one was a Dual that had a wood frame.  Haven't had a functional one in years.  Still have all my top shelf LPs though.  Alas the bottom shelf which was mostly stuff I had replaced with CD were ruined in a flood.  No pics.
Released date are often when it it impacted you but recorded dates are when it really happened...

I recently watched Wim Wenders Road Trilogy.
The truck driver had his precious 45rpm collection on the truck seat and was playing a 45 by SLIDING it into this maybe 8X8 inch player!
This german  film would be early-70s and  cd players not yet in the public.

I never heard of a portable 45 player of this sort.

Mine has still got the Mission tonearm it came with and is presently running a new Denon DL103 MC cart, previously had a Grado Signature 8M MI cart on it that I've had for years with a few stylus changes.

^Yeah, I've been reading up on it. Growing up I always wanted a Dual but couldn't afford it. Then as I got older and the vintage stuff became more in demand...I couldn't afford it. Now I lucked out seeing this one and BINGO...I can afford it. I now have three turntables, Hitachi PS12, a Sansui (can't remember the model but something like an SR-525) and now my Dual 606. I think I'll gift the Hitachi to my son, I bought it when I was 15. It took almost a month to save up for it at the time. The Sansui I got at a local opportunity shop for $10 and it was in mint condition.

Nice JD! A 606 very nice DD table, careful with cartridge matching as this is a low mass arm, probably need to stick with carts in the mid-weight range, no more than 7-8g probably.

Have fun!
