A vintage classic from Pioneer. Typical with higher end turntables, this is a pure manual turntable. All the money was spent on the quality of the tonearm, motor, and platter bearings. The AC snchornous motor is massive. Makes most turntable motors look like something out of a toy. The venner has been replaced with a rustic burl finish. There is a repaired crack in the rear of the cover, but it's otherwise clearer than most of this age. A new Ortofon Omega cartridge is included.
