RGET's review (This content has been automatically translated from English) " sound quality and reliability"

Works well for all these years. A complete revision to a professional in 1991 and that's it.
This plate has a suspended chassis and is equipped with an excellent original arm.
They are driven by a synchronous motor 16 poles that still works perfectly after all these years. the belt has been replaced 2 times since 1966.
The cell of origin is an increasing rarity. This is an excellent ORTOFON SL15 (MC, mooving coil). The matching transformer required for this cell was provided.
A mechanically simple and perfect. Unquestionable reliability for platinum used as to the origin.

I bought Emmaus 2 years ago. I bought for 10 euros but I did not know what was in my hands. Just the name sounds vaguely said something.
In the era I thought the best decks (for her) taient the mixing decks. In fact c'tait a monumental absurdity.
Let's look more closer to the typical to the great lady MkII: belt drive to limit the impurity in its own engine. Platter 3k500 history of failing to change speed or pitch. The arm and table are on a common support which is not the bti of the plate. Indeed it is placed on this spring to limit the vibration environment of a clean plate.

Rsumons: This turntable is like a Swiss watch without fluctuation, even minimal speed. And impurities had a diverse and varied vibrations are minimized.

In conclusion, even for 250 euro is a matter, especially when you look at the true price of a good turntable for costing.

I use them for costing obviously, but also in using samples taken from vinyl. And to a quality of costing I could not dreaming for better rcuprer sample of vinyl.

Basically this deck is the ultimate for me, and I do not resell it for the world as it is timeless.

Rcent Owner 'a TD ​​150 MkII September 1970, I must be totally tomb under the spell of this plate. In a simple design (just look at the bottom of the beautiful), but effective (3.4 kg heavy plate and tray and arms hanging), it produces superb sound in its standard configuration. In light of what he can do in terms of amlioration to make it even better (changing frame, foot, arm, ...) you have the base to give idalie unleash your imagination. Of course the look is a bit dated (especially the tone arm), but I can assure you that the sound, it has nothing Exceeds! Quite the contrary. Like all the decks of this age should redo the connectors (cable modulation and power), change the belt (about 25 Euros) but it's nothing compared to the pleasure of costs it offers.
In short, it is a platinum (salon) trs endearing!

Last Updated on 02/12/2007: I put a Shure Shure M75MB with a diamond nine, but happiness!

Last Updated on 16/04/2008: Replacing the power cable, the former silent dfrachit.

Last Updated on 20/04/2008: Replacing the original arms TP13A a SME 3009 SII Improved door with fixed cell. For fun and for the sound!
