Akai AP-B20 Belt Drive turntable
Made in Japan in 1980, the Akai AP-B20 leveraged a lot of the design and quality from the Akai AP-100 - but added in a J-Shaped tonearm and anti-resonant headshell. This is a somewhat retro-styled turntable that actually sounds really really good! This is the much rarer black verion of this model.
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 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. It does not have lid hinges but does have the original lid.
