For Sale is my Basis 2800
Turntable with Vacuum platter and hold down system.
I have owned both the 2800 and 2500 tables
over the years and much prefer the 2800 for its ability to keep the record
perfectly flat and present a much blacker background with quieter and more
nuanced sound that is very apparent and obvious to the listener with a direct comparison. No need for a record clamp with this hold down system as it is the best in the industry with the Vacuum Platter system and
external Vacuum Air pump - hose assembly. This has the superb fluid-damped suspension system.
The table is now residing at the Basis Factory in New Hampshire where it went through a complete evaluation for performance and specification. Any worn parts were replaced with new parts including a new motor that is Sychro Wave Power Supply ready with a Din like connector.
I will include a Basis By-pass box that will allow the owner to plug the motor
into the wall and run it without synhro or you can add the external synhro
power supply at a later time and the motor will already be wired for it without
having to send the square motor back to the factory to be re-wired.
This table will perform as new and the new buyer can rest assured every part of the 2800 is within specification to Basis Audio very high standards. The factory went through every part and component in the turntable assembly and tested it. Even the rubber seal on the top of the platter has been replaced to provide a better air tight seal. The Motor, feet, vacuum pump and bearing assembly have all been upgraded to the Signature status. The sale will include new filters and silencers along with new cable and hoses for the pump. Cosmetically I would rate the entire table system as a whole 8/10.
The last two photos show the Basis 2800 assembled when I had it set up at my house with my Vector arm and Basis Calibrator Base witch is not included. The other detail photos show various components that make up the whole. Please note the tonearm, cartridge and calibrator base is not included but everything else is. A standard Basis belt is included. Also included is a owners manual.
The table will be shipped directly directly from Basis Audio and will include all of the proper packaging. There will be three separate boxes that make up the whole turntable assembly. I recommend ground shipping that should cost between $180-280 (estimate) (insurance extra) to the Continental USA.
