(image for) Call for Price

For Sale: Best find of the year?  An extra clean classic 1970's Japanese made direct drive semi automatic stereo turntable. Near "time warp" condition.

Includes a great sounding and mint condition Grado G-1+ phono cartridge with an original G1+/S, Black Plate, 2 Yellow Dots stylus. Not sure how much use it has seen but going by the excellent sound quality would guess very little. No distortion, no hum, no skipping, no issues.

All the features on this turntable are working correctly. It's a semi automatic model which means to play an album you move the tonearm over to the first track and the platter spins up. Lower the cuing lever and the tonearm gently drops and record plays, at the end of the record the tonearm automatically raises up, returns to holder, lowers, and table powers off. Works correctly 100% of the time.

The speed and pitch controls are working correctly and the neon strobe shows speed to be accurate and steady on both 33 and 45 RPM. Dust cover is clean and shows very little wear, no chips or cracks, good hinges, stays upright when opened. Headshell is metal and original to the turntable.

Equipped with the same smooth, silent auto-return tonearm control mechanism and output muting circuit as the SL-1300, the semi-automatic SL-1400 meets most audiophiles needs. Automatic output muting cuts off irritating noise caused when the stylus is set down or lifted off the disc and is most effective when the tonearm is being manually operated with the cueing lever.
