Loving that sideboard - very Scandinavian!

Mum's got one just like it, the bottle of Bacardi I found in it when I was 13 put me off white rum for life.

  • Still can't even sniff a bottle cap without wanting to hurl  ?

I was like that for decades but some years ago a barman gave me a rum and coke rather than bourbon.....................and I managed to drink it OK.

Helped by the fact that the queue was long and I was 75% tanked already.

Now I can drink it as a mixer OK..................haven't been game to try it straight though.

      Item: NAD 5120 Turntable with Ortofon OM5E
      Location: Melbourne, Australia
      Price: $250
      Item Condition: Excellent overall. Perfect working condition, great cosmetically (perspex lid has superficial scratches from years of being wiped/cleaned).
      Reason for selling: Upgraded to a new TT
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      This NAD 5120 is a time capsule. I bought it mint from a gentleman in the outer Melbourne suburbs in 2012, he had bought it brand new in the late 80s, used it for a couple of months then stopped using it and had put it back in its original box. For 20+ years it was in storage in its original box and when I bought it I had the pleasure to unbox it again. The sticky tape had almost perished / disintegrated and left a sticky mess.. nothing a citrus cleanser can't fix of course.
       
      Sounded pretty good out of the box (I had it hooked up to a Rega Fono Mini) but I knew the original cartridge and stylus would've been long past its best before date. I put a fresh Ortofon OM5E, a new drive belt and took it to Carlton AV for a proper setup and voila, it sings!
       
      Over the last 9 years I have enjoyed the NAD, listening on average only 1-2 hours per month - it did not get much use at all. Very very clean deck overall and well looked after. Stylus is regularly cleaned with a carbon bristle brush and has dust cap included.
       
      The NAD 5120 is the epitome of NAD's quirkiness + 80s overengineering. The sub-plate is floating, suspended by springs, isolated from the main chassis from vibration. The counterweight is freely sprung in a magical 80s viscoelastic liquid in a reservoir! NAD calls it DVA - Dynamic Vibration Absorber. Patrick Bateman would've been really into this.
       
      Lastly, it has a super handy auto-stop function which I really like.. you can listen to records to sleep and not worry about the stylus being ground to oblivion.
       
      Own (and listen) to this 80s vintage piece of cool.
