10 is a nice round number.



Sorry, I thought you had mentioned having 9 turntables in the remote island thread.

Oh, I see, sorry.

Yes, maybe I did, but I’ve got a TD-124


A bump for this beautiful turntable.

Now on eBay starting at £1800

Would take £1750 on AA which is a £200 reduction on the original posting.

Ideal Xmas pressie!


Nice price, the arm seems to have been back to SME point in it’s life, the dashpot and quite possibly the headshell are from the ‘R’ range maybe this was when the arm got it’s RCA conversion? Whatever the case its a lovely offering

That sounds feasible, I did think it was an odd configuration.
