Hi, nice table, I am almost certain it is a p3 (rb300 arm) with an amazing 550.00 Goldring cartridge!
Black in colour, served me well!
8/10 it has some cover scuffs and swirls!
Looking for totems, studiolabs or Asw only! Nothing vintage please
"The Goldring GR2 turntable delivers a substantial sonic improvement over the GR1.2. First and foremost, the tonearm comes fitted with the ultra high quality Goldring 1012GX moving magnet cartridge which features the acclaimed ‘Gyger II’ profile stylus. This is a Fine Line type which produces exceptionally detailed and smooth treble, coupled with extremely low distortion.
The Goldring GR2 also uses a large (18mm) platter main bearing, which aids sound quality by reducing rumble. The low resonance Kronospan platter contains a heavy metal insert which encircles the platter close to the outer rim. This increases both the platter’s mass and fly-wheel effect, which in turn, improves speed accuracy and gives a more dynamic sound.
The synergy from all of these improvements is a turntable that leapfrogs other turntables in terms of sonic performance. See below what reviewers have to say about the GR2.
