Technics SL-1700 Turntable with New Moonstone Sumiko Cartridge


Great entry level Technics turntable fitted with a new Sumiko Rainier cartridge.

We love Technics direct drive turntables and this is a fine entry level example.  We only refer to it as entry level because of its price since it packs much of the performance of its big brother the SL-1200, but adds some convenience features such as auto start/stop.  The strobe indicator and individual 33.3 and 45 RPM knobs let you fine tune the speed.  The auto return feature is great if you like to sometimes listen to records in the background since it will lift and return the arm when the record is finished.  The direct drive motor ensures you don't need to mess around with replacement belts.  

This table is in fine cosmetic condition and although the cover shows typical scuffs and light scratches, the rest of it is very presentable with no signs of abuse.  

The cartridge is brand new out of the box and is a new Moonstone just released from Sumiko.  It features a removable stylus which allows you to upgrade should you desire.  

Table is performing in all areas as it should and has been fully tested.
