Nakamichi DRAGON-CT Computing Turntable - Super Rare Masterpiece from Japan

$9,999

One of the rarest of turntables to come from Japan with exact production figures unknown. Very VERY few were ever made available that's for sure.

Carrying the legendary Dragon namesake it wasn't easy for Nakamichi to design and build a turntable worthy of its name. 

Featuring the one and only "Nakamichi Absolute Center Search System" which actually measures the groove eccentricity of the record, then automatically corrects for true dead center by adjusting the position of the platter!!

A truly amazing process to watch as the second arm wand comes out, measures the record with incredible precision, indexes the platter, and finally makes a centering adjustment. Then notifying you it's now completed with a red light.

Working versions of this masterpiece are not easy to find, especially in this condition. We've actually had the fortune to have a few in the past, so we're very familiar with its operation and maintenance.

Please note this is listed without a phono cartridge - the pictured cartridge is not included. You can supply your own or chose from our wide variety of Sumiko pieces as we're an official dealer here in the NY Metro area. The Sumiko Pearwood for example would be a fine choice.
