FOUND: WTB: SA- Inexpensive Turntable needed urgently


Recommended Posts

Item: Inexpensive turntable
Price Range: up to $200
Item Condition: New or Used
Extra Info: A friend needs a tt as a 16th birthday gift for her vinyl loving son. I have an amp for her and they have speakers already, just need a decent tt with cartridge to get started. She just got in touch and needs it ideally over the weekend. Anything around??

I just checked facebook marketplace around Adelaide and found an  Akai AP206C Direct Drive  for $100.   Needs headshell, cartridge and dust cover,  but otherwise working apparently.   

 

not much on gumtree.   

 

There;s a few ebay 'buy it now' options about the right price too.   APAN, AKAI, SONY

 

 

If you had more time I'd suggest this  as about the best new option around,   just a little over at $250.    Ignore the $799 RRP.    I think it's the same as the Project Primary E TT which is usually $350 or so I believe

Any luck yet Anthony?

Same story here I have an Apan but no plinth plus a few other carcasses that wouldn't take much to get going if you had a bit more time.

Nothing concrete sadly, something will pop up I'm sure.

 

Thanks for the thoughts too @Grumpy and @manchu

I was in Holy Vinyl last week and there was a couple of secondhand TTs for sale. didn't note the prices but expect they might be a bit beyond budget. worth a call maybe.

Got a Technics SL-23 FG 

 

$100

 

new cart and belt, holds 33 perfect, bit erratic on 45 but jumps straight back to lock on to 33

 

Problem will be transport
