Akai AP-100C Belt drive turntable

Akai AP-100C Belt drive turntable


Made in Japan in 1979, the Akai AP-100C is a high-fidelity turntable that is super easy to use, and is an extremely well designed and constructed turntable.  This is the much rarer black version of this superb turntable.


It has a precision engineered tonearm, with anti-skating - to ensure the stylus sits perfectly in the groove. .  The removable headshell can accomodate a wide range of cartridges should you ever choose to upgrade.  This one comes with the Akai PC-100 cartridge for greater stability and tracking.


It is a semi-automatic turntable - perfect for those who don't want to get up at the end of a record and prefer to let the turntable return the tonearm to rest for you.


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.
