I bought this for a second turntable in my system, but I can really find the room for it, so it must go. Everything works well on this, all lights function, speed is instant and accurate, and platter spins very freely. The tonearm has VERY smooth movement in all directions, VTA adjuster works very seamlessly, and bearings are perfect. Cueing mechanism works flawlessly, and arm lock is fine. These 1200's are classic direct drive turntables. Sounds great, and looks fine. There are a couple of marks from the previous owner, but nothing major. Includes Precept cartridge. Sorry, no dust cover.
