Even as a stand alone piece, the LOTH-X Othello is a beautiful turntable. Almost entirely made up in acrylic, the Othello is an artsy piece turntable that is a testament to the resurging revival of vinyl. The motor is mounted separately in its own casing to prevent any mechanical vibration from interfering with the workings of the cartridge/arm and platter which is then controlled via another control module where you can select the running speed – 33 or 45 rpm. The controls for each individual speed can be further adjusted to fine tune its pitch control too so you can almost nail the speed accuracy on its head by making the minutest of adjustment. The cartridge on it now is a “starter” MM piece from Audio Technica which we strongly recommend swapping it out for a mid or higher level cartridge to fully exploit the wonders of this turntable.
Cosmetically, the table is in pretty nice condition. Some minor scuff marks here and there that are common with use but nothing major like cracks or nicks. Table has been well cared for by a vinyl audiophile and we have the original box for it. We will double box it for safe shipping.
