LAST CHANCE-NEXT FEW HOURS - DENVER AUDIOPHILES ONLY
Conrad Johnson Sonographe SG-3 turntable and arm. I am the second owner of this vintage turntable. It is a sleeper and not really well known, but what Conrad Johnson did is produce a turntable similar to the classic AR but with a bit better sound. At its price it was a bargain for the sound it produced.
It has served me well and I have used it with a fantastic AudioQuest moving coil cartridge (not included). The turntable and arm work fine. The belt is good and pitch seems good although I have not tested the speed with a strobe disk lately. There is a few imperfections. The bolts for the feet are slightly bent but I can still get it level. The arm parking clip is gone so you need to be careful not to move without securing the arm. All in all the turntable is in good shape and so much better sounding than those used direct drives you find all over. The arm was supposedly sourced from Sumiko (LMT model).
The dust cover is entirely covered in scratches and was that way when I bought it. It looks ugly and has some deep gouges. Just a little chip off one of the corners. No cracks though and it fits the hinges so you can use it to keep the table from getting too dusty.

I am offering to the Headfi community first and will consider serious offers for this week only then it goes to another site if it does not sell. If you make an offer be prepared to pay immediately.
