Platinum high-end for this legendary brand. Suspended by four legs mounted on coil springs and adjustable in hardness. Belt drives and crystal controlled. ULM arm aluminum, very light weight, perfectly adapted to the cells a strong compliance. No change réeellement possible for the improvement of the TD. Three speeds, 33/45/78. Finishing well crafted, but a lot of plastic around his arm (joint). Dual removable head to the standard for this model. Stop on disk and manual lift arm. Cover plate of high density rubber. The result is to listen more than adequate, especially with the Ortofon OM20.

Johnny's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I use it for 8 months.
what I liked in the first with this unit was a "face it" it is beautiful, and automatic shutdown at end of travel, and also the product of what the cell is installed.
yes I try a thorens 166 mkII and I like it at all.
it is a bit expensive to buy for a vintage platinum but it is well worth it: the look, the various advanced technologies.
yes well if the mood takes me one day as I buy a turntable without a problem.
