I am selling a Kenwood LP 990 semi automatic turntable with the Denon DL
103 MC cartridge. This turntable is rare and imported from Japan. Its
semi automatic and therefore the tonearm automatically lifts at the end
of the record and the platter stops spinning. This turntable has been
completely serviced and restored. Here is what has been done:
- All the electrolytic capacitors
have been replaced with Nichicon FG (Fine Gold) audiophile grade with beefed up
- All the solder joints were
reheated-anything questionable was resoldered
- The motor seals and arm have been
lubed (including the VTA adjustment)
- All other moving parts (switches,
dials) we cleaned and relubed
- The VR (variable resistors) were
set to spec with a DV
- Anti Skate fish line replaced with new one
- New Denon DL-103 MC Cartridge with LP Gear Ultimate Headshell professionally aligned by LP Gear
original feet with upgraded aluminum feet purchased from MNPCTECH. Made
in USA. (I will include the original feet with the package as well)
- The black base is in very good condition. There are no cracks or breaks.
- The only items to mention are cosmetic:
There are scratches in the clear coat on the left side of the base. You
can see them in the 11th pic. The scratches are NOT in the wood just
the clear coat.
- There is a chip on on one of the original feet (see pic 12). Its still fully functional and only a cosmetic issue.
dust cover is fully functional and has no cracks or breaks. The
dust cover does have some scratches on the top and is a bit cloudy.
turntable was originally imported from Japan. Therefore, it needs a
power converter to operate in the USA. I am including a brand new power
converter for the Kenwood so it will work perfectly in the USA.
I will of course pack the turntable professionally. I always double box
my turntables for safe shipping and only use large bubble wrap and foam.
No peanuts. The platter will be removed and placed at the bottom of the
box. The coutnerweight will be removed and packed separately. The dust
cover will be removed and packed separately. The headshell and cartridge
will be packed separately in its own Denon box.
I have included a video that displays the turntable operation:
I am selling for $500.00 plus UPS Ground shipping at $50.00. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for your interest!
