There goes my first turntable. It is no audiophile star, but was good enough to make me taste and continue the journey into Vinyl. I advice only serious buyers to contact and be prepared to come, demo and pick up the turntable yourself. That means it is only open for local sale.
I am the second owner. It was carefully unmounted by a Turntable expert Forum Member from the original owners vintage console in the tea gardens of Assam. Selling because I have upgraded to a Technics SL-Q303.

*The plinth was made to the original specification using 36 mm MDF using precision CNC cutting. I got it done professionally by Acoustic Science, Delhi.
*I have the original manual, plinth drawing.
*Comes with two KS40A cartridges (the original cartridge for the model) which came along with the Turntable.
*I have purchased a new narrow mounting clip for the tonearm. I have also purchased a new replacement stylus for the Cartridge. It is meant for LP on both sides. The original stylus had needle for 78s also but I didnt need that. The LP/78 stylus is also readily available online.
*It is originally a changer model, but while getting plinth work done, I got the changer parts removed because I didnt want to use that feature. It can be put back but I dont know how to.
*There is an adjustment issue with the pickup lowering position in Auto mode which I cant seem to fix. Somebody with proper knowledge of vintage TTs should be able to do it easily. But since I only use manual operation, it was not important for me.
*This is a ceramic cartridge and hence requires a ceramic phono preamp which are really hard to find now. The one I am including was assembled specially by a friend who helped me source the Turntable from Assam.
*Condition: It is in a decent condition for the age of roughly 40 years! The plinth, RCA connectors, Power cable, cartridge connecting wires, mounting clip, stylus are actually all in good condition (fabricated or replaced between last 2 months to 20 months).
