Sota Series V Star Vacuum Turntable circa 2008. American Cherry finish.
This is a one owner turntable from a non-smoking, pet free, adult household.
This sale is for the turntable, vacuum pump and associated tubing, Origin Live Silver Mkii tone-arm, Riggle VTAF, dust cover MINT protractor. The dust cover has defects which are noted below.
The turntable has low hours. It has seen very little use over the last 3 or 4 years. The finish is American Cherry. It has the composite armboard drilled for the Origin Live Silver Mkii tonearm that is included in this sale.
The table still holds a vacuum.
I’ve included the belt, but it is eight years old and could probably do with a refresh.
There are no dents, chips or scratches on the wooden surfaces of the
I’ll rate the table 8/10 for age and original fit/finish.
The tone arm was purchased new through SOTA. It is an Origin Live Silver MKii. I rate the tonearm condition 8/10 just for age.
The dust cover originated from an earlier, model SOTA turntable. The dust cover had condition issues prior to my owning. The rear, left corner of the dust cover has hole in it, the hole is about the size of a quarter but a bit more oblong in shape. The rear right corner is has a vertical crack approximately an inch long extending from the bottom edge upward in the corner radius. The lid also has some scuffs and scratches. The lid hinges function well. If you can live with the defects this lid does keep most dust off the surface of the platter.
The dust cover I will rate at 3/10. The defects are noticeable.
The pump has been located in a closet near the listening area and shows some signs of being bumped around a bit. It doesn’t take much to dislodge this finish from the mdf so there are places where you can seen bare mdf on the pump/power supply. If you plan on having it plain sight you may want to have it resprayed.
Included in this sale is a Mint Best Tractor for cartridge alignment for the Sota / Origin Live combination.
