Akai AP-001 Belt Drive turntable

Akai AP-001 Belt Drive turntable

$550.00Price

Made in Japan in 1978, the Akai AP-001 was part of Akai's finest range of turntables they ever made.  There is nothing cheaply made on this turntable.  Under the hood it's made to last - no fragile plastic parts in sight.

 

This is the incredibly rare black version of this fabulous belt drive turntable and it is in absolutely amazing condition.

 

It has a superb tonearm, with dynamic anti-skating - no need to twirl any dials - the anti-skating sets itself.  The removable headshell can accomodate a wide range of cartridges should you ever choose to upgrade.

 

It is a semi-automatic turntable - perfect for those who don't want to get up at the end of a record to stop it spinning - the Akai AP-001 simply stops the record spinning at the end of play.

 

This turntable has been recently serviced and is ready to spin for you.  It also comes with a new stylus and is fully setup in all repects.
