The turntable works fine. Here are the issues, Originally(I read) it came with an acrylic plinth. It no longer has that plinth. The control section has little rubber feet which "were" glued to the bottom. They came off and need to be glued back on (i have them). I bought this table used without the acrylic plinth. (I didn't even know it had one new) I played it successfully for a few years. (sounded great!). I will say this, it is "bear" to set up. The buyer of this should be a little bit handy and at the least patient. If they are, this is a world class table (and one of coolest looking ever IMHO) I don't have a box, or the manual. It is sold AS IS and is local pickup only in Manhattan NYC.
