Hi anm, just buy it if the condition is good. Pioneer PL 400 is a well built TT with 2-speed, quartz-controlled, direct-drive turntable fitted with S-shaped tone arm with aluminum alloy die cast platter. Pioneer made good TT's during 70's & 80's. I have a pioneer SA 9100 top of the line amp in my rig, made during 1972. Built like a tank, sounds awesome.
thanks Anil. what should be the fair price for this? You have the higher model, any idea about this particular model?
I am not in a hurry to buy a TT, but I do want to buy one and want to buy right - at least that doesn't need to be changed in a year or so.
