Turntable advice - Good deal or no?
« on: January 03, 2019, 11:46:06 AM »
Probably too late to ask, but this table popped up in my local facebook yard sale. Listed as "like new" for $60. If it is as advertised, could I go wrong in forking over $60 for a B&O table?

I hope not, GF on way to pick up. Any advice on what I should do to or with it is appreciated.

I just unwrapped my first turntable (Music Hall MMF 2.2) but the thing I remember reading about B&O tables is replacement cartridges will be expensive.  Hopefully it'll be in nice condition. Here's replacement cartridges: $250  https://www.sound-smith.com/bo-replacement-cartridge-models#smmc20e  Assuming it's this tt:  https://www.beoworld.org/prod_details.asp?pid=273

Yikes! That's crazy!

Turntable looks like it's in good shape. Dust cover a little scratched up but I expected that.

I meant to write down the model number and forgot to, but I think it is the 1602.
