This is the real deal. It was one of the first two tables built to become Maplenoll. It was constructed at the Navy Station in Jacksonville commissioned by an officer at the base.
This is a unique table for several reasons. It has 2 pumps and offers vacuum hold down as well as platter and arm - full air bearing. It does need the rubber mat for the platter and I believe SOTA could supply one to activate the hold down
It has two dust covers and a full second chassie that can be used as parts. The table was owned by Art Ferris at Audible Illusions and I acquired if from Art. It works great, I use and Audio Tekne platter mat and don't use the vacuum hold down.
The arm is the most unique air arm I've ever seen. It has magnetic tracking force and needs no counterweight or anti skate.
This table blows away anything that is not air bearing. It is still competitive with todays best and most expensive designs.
It is most likely worth about 8000-10000 to the right owner as it can become the centerpiece of a top system going into the hundred's of thousands of dollars.
