got it

Post by mbskeam » Mon Nov 01, 2010 7:17 pm

picked up a philips 867,
the table is nothing special, but when the guy says I have a few albums to throw in,turns out to be 60+

I think, lets take a drive.....
the table is in real nice shape for being a 30+ years old, no cracks in the lid etc....
the cartridge is an Acutex, from what I have read its wasn't to bad in its day.....

In 2010 there are many excellent new turntables to buy. Most are over priced and the rest are crap.

Turntables are old crap - so buy vintage when it was peak. Looks like you got a deal there.

Hook it up, report back what you hear..

Few here have as many CDs as I do - but when letting the needle down on an LP - nothing sounds so sweet.
