Aiwa AP2200 TT: any good?
Just bought this turntable in great condition for 25 euros.
Linear Torque Direct Drive Player R-Player Aiwa Co. Ltd.; To
Built like a tank and incredibly heavy. Very little information around about Aiwa TT: is it a good device? Any advices about a new cartridge? Do I have to lube the motor (it is a direct drive)?

According to a german forum, base is compressed rock wool with pvc.
(Google translation from german to english):
A direct-drive semi-automatic turntable with front panel and high ease of use and a very competitive price / performance ratio. The frame is of pressed rock wool, sealed with PVC. The result is a largely free from resonance ground.
The feet inwards are adjustable so that the turntable can be installed in a small space or on shelves. The highly stabilized synchronization is achieved by a newly developed linear-torque DC servo motor. And the peak bearing tonearm has a special adjustment: the fine adjustment of the contact pressure is carried out prior to storage of the tone arm from the front. Adjustable counterweight and anti-skate are easily adjustable.
The record player has at least 2 separate controls for fine-tuning the speed 33 or 45 U /. An illuminated stroboscope in PLATTER helps you set the exact speed. The flutter are <0.065% DIN, d

The table was included in a interesting range of mid-hifi devices from AIWA in the late 70's.
It has suspension feet.
Cartridge is a vintage golden Empire 2000, someone swear by it.
Anyway the turntable looks so nice with my NAD separates...
