Default Onkyo CP700-M - any good?

Hi there,

I've just acquired a full Onkyo system including the above turntable, dirty but in very good condition otherwise. The components, I believe, were the TOTL of the Onkyo components of their time.

The table is a direct drive with separately adjustable 33/45 rpm speeds and seems to be well made, except for the tone arm which is the typical midrange Japanese S arm of the time.

Does anyone know how well the above table was rated in its day? Worth putting a good arm on?

Cheers

Stuey

Actually, Onkyo's top of the line turntable was the PX-100M. The one you have would be excellent for experimenting with heavy plinths with a vibration sink for the bottom bearing.

Thanks John. Nice idea!

My comment was based upon the brochure the original owner had, along with the owners manuals provided to me, on which Onkyo stated in the blurb that these components (combined into a 'hi-fi unit') were their top of the range.

Cheers
