If you are looking for a seriously good turntable with an “exotic” look to it, look no further. The gorgeous bubinga wood finish is just a sight to behold (especially when it is highlighted by a dedicated spot light on your turntable rack!). The finest Italian craftsmanship is clearly exhibited here. This particular turntable is exceptionally clean and well taken cared off. Previous owner used a Goldbug Medusa MC cartridge ($1,000 MSRP) from Japan which gave it this richly textured and full bodied sound. The highs were smooth and relaxed and the bass wholesome and aplenty. Turntable is 33 and 45 rpm capable with a speed attenuator right next to its selector knob for even finer speed adjustments. It is belt driven via a dual pulley system with two belts for more precise and consistent spin. Cartridge works fine now but as with all used cartridges, please plan ahead and have a standby cartridge ready to replace when the used one is ready to go.
Teksonor turntables are extremely rare to find and one in this impeccable finish is even rarer. This is a US import version with 120V input and not a European 230V version. As you can see from the pictures, it is in beautiful shape. Minor scuff marks here and there (mainly on the clear acrylic dustcover) but nothing major. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack this for safe shipping.
