purchased this about one year ago when i got excited about vinyl again. it is a modified lenco which i can explain to anyone interested if there are questions. markedly better than the turntable that it replaced, a belt drive british turntable. comes with the origin live illustrious Mk 3 and the ortofon cadenza bronze that were new at time of purchase. the turntable with plinth weighs about 100 pounds and comes in a wooden crate which is substantial. the arm and cartridge ship in separate box.
unfortunately, i managed to bump the record weight and created a small chip in the paint along the front edge of the plinth. also, smaller chip in the plinth that i created when positioning the tonearm. hasn't bothered me enough to touch it up, but wanted this disclosed. dust visible in photos.
