Question Vintage soviet Vega 101 Electrophone (aka Turntable) - Any info.?

I've recently inherit this vintage (and HEAVY) piece of SSSR era stereo turntable (aka Electrophone ).
It's in a great cosmetic condition (a bit dusty) and AFAIK should be in perfect operational state...
I originally planned to tear it down for DIY parts - but it's just so cool (impressive wood work).

Does anyone has any info. or details regarding this Brand or specific model?
Is it a complete piece of crap or does it worth keeping/exchanging with local hobbyist (I'm not into turn tables myself...) !?!?!?
