I was looking for a record player, so that I could have everything I needed to transfer old media formats to new. I already had my reel to reel and my vcr, now all I needed was a record player. I found this beauty on ebay. I had never seen a linear turntable. It worked fine until it was time for me to move, I accidently cracked the dust cover. I had to buy a whole new one from a guy who lived in Spain. It took about a month to arrive because of customs. When it arrived I saw that during shipping the dust cover had been cracked just like my old one. I finally found someone who had a dust cover and liked to work on these turntables, I traded him for the turntable that came from Spain, repaired my original Technics turntable, and the rest is history.
