Rotel RP 830 with TALK Zephyr C50 cartridge
« on: February 24, 2017, 07:47:07 PM »
Hi Guys
Want to advertise this but no idea of going rate....
Have extra belt and C50 is brand new.

Any pointers as to a fair asking price?

Much appreciated.

Can't say I know either, the TT looks like an RP1? Cart if with TT originally was probably a rebranded AT 91

And considering some of the shagged out sh1t people buy for that kind of money today it would be a good deal.

Sold one this weekend with a Rega  Bias cart for R2500

It''s a real 'sleeper' table.. A nice Jelco sourced tonearm, a hefty bearing and platter and a sturdy plinth. The only thing they cheaped out on is the 4 pole synchronous motor. That said when I set up the deck for sale it never measured bad for speed stability or accuracy...

had one of those with a Goldring cartridge sometime back. Not bad at all. Its bigger brother the RP 850 was closer to a Planar 2. Much sturdier plinth and heavier sandwich type setup.
