Oh boy... this is going to be long so bear with me! If you've been looking to get into vinyl but just wanted to purchase everything you need (with vinyl there are a LOT of unspoken things you need that add up fast, this sale has everything in one tidy package) to kick off all at once, keep reading....

Up for sale, we have the gorgeous Rotel RP-2400 turntable, but it is only the tip of the iceberg...

The turntable was fully restored and given a brand new lease on life by Joel Thorner, owner of The Turntable Factory, who just passed away last Sunday (7/1/07).

The restoration of the turntable included (but is not limited to):

-Complete re-wiring of the tonearm
-Brand new, shielded, gold plated & hardwired RCA cables
-Brand new hardwired power cord
-Brand new hardwired ground cable
-Full cleaning and re-lubrication of the turntable
-Brand new belt
-Repacking of the cue system
-Brand new gold plated copper headshell wires

The original dust cover and 45rpm adapter are included.

Now that you've got the basics of the turntable, let's get down to the included accessories

The turntable will include:

- The Mapleshade Surefoot v.3 footing system
- A Mapleshade ready to be finished 18x15x2 air dried maple platform
- A set of Mapleshade 99lbs IsoBlocks
- The Sumiko Pearl cartridge (stylus included), as recommended to me on Audio Asylum
- The famous NAD PP-2 phono stage/preamp (black color version)
- 3ft Acoustic Research RCA-to-RCA Performance Series interconnect for hooking up the PP-2 to your amp
- Phonopreamps.com Model 55 digital stylus force gauge
- Shure SFG-2 analog stylus force gauge
- LP Gear ProTractor Cartridge Alignment Tool with LP Gear Zero Level
- Brand new spare belt for the turntable (in addition to the brand new belt already installed in the turntable)
- Mobile Fidelity LP #9 stylus cleaner
- LP Gear 10x Stylus Inspector with diamond grading optics
- LP Gear phono first aid kit (the headshell wires are missing from the kit, they broke)
- LP Gear Anti-skating weight (this is not needed with the Rotel turntable; I bought it by accident, it is being thrown in free)
- LP Gear cartridge mounting screw set (this is a spare, the tonearm already has screws)
- For an extra fee of $30, the Niles Audio AXP-1 5-way (5 inputs, 1 output) line level switchbox
- LP Gear Sonic Phono Headshell wires (these are already being used on the arm, so in their package are the stock nickel wires)
- LP Gear SOTA Stroboscope Disk
- Original Technics 1/4" thick rubber turntable mat (Use instead of stock, it produces much more accurate VTA)
- RCA Discwasher D4 Kit with extra refill
- Manual for the turntable from Vintage Manuals, Inc.
- One unused 32oz bottle of Audio Intelligent Premium One-Step Formula No. 6 record cleaning solution
- Spare Rotel headshell (snagged it on e-bay, good luck finding another)
- Popular Science Monthly Stereo Test Record, which includes the following tracks:
Band 1 - Introduction
Band 2 - Channel Identification
Band 3 - Phasing
Band 4 - Channel Balance
Band 5 - Intro to Freq. Response
Band 6 - Test Frequencies
Band 7 - High Frequency Tracking
Band 8 - Acoustical Test
Band 9 - Low Frequency Tracking
Band 10 - Rumble and Noise (blank grooves)
Band 11 - Standard Pitch "A" (a continuous 440Hz tone)

Side 2 just has a bunch of examples of different music.

I got it brand new and only played it once.


Guys, this is an INSANE deal. This sale has EVERYTHING (plus extras) you need to start spinning vinyl safely without ruining it. As I said before, with vinyl, there are A LOT of unspoken items that you must purchase to go along with it. Well, this includes EVERYTHING you will need. If you have been wanting to get into vinyl but didn't want to take the time to get everything you needed or were just plain confused as to what was needed, this is your one stop answer. The turntable itself is beautiful, it is made of wood and looks extremley elegant, especially on top of the maple platform with the brass footers. I will try and get pictures of everything but I will not have access to a camera at the earliest tomorrow night, or the latest sometime this Sunday. The only "defect" is that the dust cover is kind of scratched up, but if you know what you are doing (I do not) you can polish it to a crystal clear finish.

The only thing you should note is that the stylus MIGHT not be aligned perfectly, you can check that with the included protractor. I checked it myself and it appeared to be aligned perfectly, but I always have a feeling I am doing something wrong, if you know what I mean.

And now, what you've all been waiting for, the asking price:
$514.80 + shipping

This is heavily discounted and a great deal! Add up the prices of everything and you will see. For reference, the turntable alone cost me $180 with repair and restoration factored in.

This sale gets you ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING you need to spin vinyl. You literally receive the package, set everything up and you can start playing LPs right away!! Do not miss out on this! If you are interested, please PM me.

Bump and update! There is some interest in this!

I also want to add, the turntable will be coming with it's stock mat, AS WELL as the 1/4" thick original Technics mat. You can try each one to see what you like better (I am guessing the technics). Technics mat being included at no extra cost.

I shot a bunch of pictures with my camera phone, the quality is crap though, but it's better than nothing!

Here they are (click to enlarge):











NOTE:
The third to last picture is the Niles AXP-1 line level switchbox. It is not included in the sale by default, but if you want/need it, it can be included for another $35.
