Both the turntable and stylus are in excellent condition, operationally and cosmetically. If you're reading this you know that this was arguably the pinnacle of Sony's turntables during their golden age of turntable designs, perhaps even besting the tangential-tracking PS-X800. The Biotracer tonearm was perfected on this model and is flawless, and the dead-quiet linear BSL motor has torque to spare (full speed in 1/2 turn). The chassis is heavy, weighing nearly 30 pounds, being made of non-resonant fiberglass and polyester. By the way. You can tell from the photos. It's beautiful!
I'm the original owner of both the turntable and the stylus (the stylus was purchased about 3 years ago). When I say the condition is excellent that might be an understatement. They are both like new because, sadly, I've mostly listened to digital audio for many years, occasionally listening to vinyl just to enjoy the improved sound. I know, I know, that sounds ridiculous, but at my age (74) the convenience of CDs, DVDs and universal remote controls has won out. I've gotten lazy!
Since I'm getting out of vinyl completely, I'm including my Diskwasher D-4 record cleaning fluid, my SC-2 stylus cleaning fluid, the old-style Diskwasher record cleaning brush and diskwasher stylus cleaning brush, all in good condition.
I haven't used Audiogon since I sold my AR9 speakers here a couple years ago and that sale seems to have disappeared, thus the lack of feedback. I do have 115 items at 100% over on eBay. See "barham2004". Please add 3% for a Paypal transaction. I'll take a personal check though it must clear the bank before I ship. The total shipping price will be provided once the shipping location is determined through UPS or Fedex. Please email me with any questions and yes, I'll package it carefully.
(By the way: If you live within driving distance of Conway, AR (who does?), you can have all my records FREE! They're good titles in assorted classical, operatic, jazz and rock. Many are pristine, some are pretty good and others, well, there are some rough ones. All date back from the fifties to the eighties. Still, their free to anyone willing to pick them up. Otherwise, I'll grudgingly give them to one of those roadside flea markets and let them sort them out. Please don't ask for titles or a listings. I'm giving them away. I don't want to work to do it.)
