Sony PS-2250 manual 2-speed direct drive turntable. This is a beautiful professional-style turntable from 1971-72. I think it was the first direct-drive made by Sony, but I may be wrong on that. I replaced the veneer and added a mid-level head shell and cartridge. I also installed new Cardas output cables. It sounds fantastic and the strobe-indicated speed is rock solid. It is of special interest to Sony collectors, but is a high-end turntable for anyone. This comes with the original PUA-114 tonearm, but lots of people install different tonearms.
MORE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MY 2250
I replaced the balance-weight set screw on the tone arm (original was missing-I just used a hardware store screw-buyer may want to find a nicer looking original)
The lateral balance weight is missing (lots of people just got rid of these things).
The tiny bias string is broken, so anti-skate adjustment is not up-to-par (but I’ve been playing records on it without any issues
The heavy plexiglas lid has some visible wear but no deep scratches. I left the hinges and the lid off after I did the re-veneer, since I thought a buyer might want to used a different type of cover or none at all.
There is a piece of black paper/card that I suspect goes somewhere behind the strobe lamp, but I could not figure out exactly how to glue it back in. It is also in the pictures, along with the bolts, hinges, hinge screws, etc.
The metal SONY 2250 name plate is quite tarnished. I cleaned it as much as I could without damaging the surface or the engraving. See pics.
Original rubber feet are missing, but most people would want to replace these anyway
