Hi
My first tunrtable was a GL75. I later bought an L75. I still own them but they live in the attic these days.

They are easy to use and reliable. There is some noise from the bearing and from the drive wheel, which directly powers the turntable. But the noise is not so bad. They make music.

I used a Shure V15 cartridge and another Shure which turned over to also allow 78's to be played.

I bought a townshend rock turntable when they first appeared and still use rock's now. However I kept the Lenco's to play 78's. I also have a very old HMV 78 player with a copper horn. That looks the part but the 78's sound better on the L75.

My L75 still works. It has needed only a new drive wheel. It is reliable and sound ok.

Don

I restored/modified/replinthed a lenco L76 (the same as L75 really). The sonics are very good - really good bass weight and very good pitch stability. If you can replinth the thing and then fit a new decent arm then you have the equivalent of say upto at $2000 table. As good as VPI scoutmaster etc.

I have mine sitting beside my "best" TT which is a teres 340. I made a DIY unipivot for the lenco. That set up doesn't quite match the teres for detail and timbre, but a lot of that may well be down to the arm - and also the cartridge.

Short answer is go get one and enjoy it. You will need to mod it lightly and fit a new arm. The ergonomics of using it are really easy and good too.

emial me if you want pics. Also visit lenco-lovers.com
