Hi MM,

hideously expensive when it was introduced.

VFM depends on what you can buy it for.

The apparently double jointed arm is not what you want.

From what I remember the (the motor unit) was not too bad.

sreten.

P.S. your right about me being a (bit of) an old duffer !

Gorgeous looking, we had one of the next even pricier models set up for comparison and it was one of the big-buck DDs we used to shoot down all the time -- helped us sell a lot of less expensive belt-drives.

well, as long as we're talking "pretty looking, crappy sounding", then have you ever listened to one of these?

Sorry to interupt, but as far as my knowledge goes, that image is not a "linear tracker". It is a very conventional offest cartridge arm.

Whatever there may be, I prefer a DD by far. Recent or old, japanese or not.

The truth is 'pretty looking ' and not too bad sounding.
(regarding the B&O)

Performance by old standards is middling to good.

VFM is all about what you pay for one.

Very difficult to modify / tweak to something better,
but a good choice as an occasional vinyl player,
for an uncritical listener, they are better than most.

That is a good quality turntable without faffing about.

sreten.
