Well Tempered Classic Turntable with New Sumiko Songbird Cartridge


Freshly rebuilt classic turntable featuring one of our favorite tonearms. 

Mated with a brand new high quality Sumiko Songbird MC (Moving-Coil) cartridge ($899), matching the performance of the 'table. 

Overall in very good condition with no significant scratches or signs of wear. 

A table of this quality would easily cost about $5k these days.

The WTA (Well Tempered Arm) is a unique and outstanding system comprise of a simple tonearm assembly suspended from light weight acrylic monofilament, and dampened by a cup of very thick silicone fluid.  This clever and well performing system is a tweakers paradise, as many adjustments can be performed while the record is actually playing.  

If you'd like no cartridge installed or a new different cartridge from Sumiko or ClearAudio, just click here and then let us know your preference.

Or if you already have a favorite cartridge you’re welcome to send it in and we’ll mount and professionally calibrate it on the table for you.

And if you're unfamiliar with the setup of a turntable we are happy to help on the phone or via FaceTime during your initial unboxing.  We’ve done this a bunch of times with great success.

For shipment, this turntable will be professionally packed and disassembled. You will receive small containers for both the bearing and arm fluids.

Includes: the 'table, tonearm, new phono cartridge, the motor, puck and new hanging strings and fresh dampening oil shipped in a small bottle.
