Hi,
I am selling my Jean Nantais Reference Lenco Mk2 turntable for sale. In the realm of idler wheel turntables this is among the top 3 turntables in the world.

It has won many accolades for its extremely high resolution, low noise floor and dynamic range. This is the MK2 version which is built into his reference 120 lbs plinth. He has taken utmost care to ensure that any component in the Lenco which detracts from sonic quality either needs to be removed or improved. Check out his website and reviews below:

It comes with 2 tonearm boards built with exotic hard wood by Jean Nantais. One of them is already drilled for 12 inch SME tonearms. It comes with its own special height adjustable footers so no further tweaks are required on this TT.

The shipping weight of this turntable was nearly 100 kg. The original packing is still available and I will use it to ship the unit.

The new price is USD 7250 and there is a minimum waiting period of 6 months. A friend of mine got it after 18 months of wait.

I am asking USD 4200. I am at Singapore hence whatever exchange rate prevails at the time of sale, we will go with that.

Asking $5850 (without tonearm). It comes with 2 tonearm boards built with exotic hard wood by Jean Nantais. One of them is already drilled for 12 inch SME tonearms. It comes with its own special height adjustable footers so no need to tweak anything with this turntable.

The shipping weight of this turntable was nearly 100 kg. I paid a bomb just to bring it from Canada to Singapore. The original packing is still available if you want it. The new price is USD 7250 (around SGD 10000), plus add in the shipping and GST. The waiting time is 6 months. One bro in Singapore got his Reference Lenco after 18 months of wait!!!

Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

Please edit the post to reflect correctly the price offered as there are two price points in the for-sale ad, which may lead to confusion.
