I note it's on sale by Emporium HiFi. I am aware some have had trouble with this supplier. Buyer beware!

Given that a GL75 appears on the linked page at price of around £21, I think this item might be slightly over priced!

I think we have very different ideas as to what constitutes a bargain! However, for me, £2,100 for a turntable isn't a bargain, sorry.

Yep, that’s never a bargain. Scan for an old Lenco and then contact Ant for a proper rebuild that gets the very best sound out of it. You can’t go wrong there.

Can you put a Lenco GL75 in a plinth made of york stone ? Slate is considered a good plinth for these so would that extend to a very hard and heavy stone like york stone ? :think:
