Up for sale is a really nice Sony PS-X555ES Direct Drive, Linear Tracking Turntable (TT). Talk about nice features: Linear Tracking, Biotracer, Direct Drive, Full Auto, Electronic Stylus pressure adjustment etc... This Turntable is rare and has it all! I've seen numerous Turntables; yet, this is the first time I've ever seen a Sony ES. Although, it has a Counter-Weight, you can also adjust Stylus Pressure electronically.
Being the only TT to sport Sony's ES designation for over a decade, the PS-X555ES is well worth taking notice of... This Record Player was purchased by a U.S. soldier in Germany several decades ago. Like most overseas personnel, keeping the original box / packing for the return to the U.S. is only natural.Once back, I was told, they never unpacked it. I did have to find a European to U.S. Plug Adaptor (included) and switch the Voltage Selector from 240V to 120V (has Multi-Voltage Selection switch on bottom).
This TT is in very good overall condition; bothsonically and cosmetically.It has a few minor blemishes plussome light swirling on the dust cover; but nothing worth noting. It really is in great shape. The only mechanical issue is the Power Light (green around Power Switch) doesn't come on and the Ortofon 310's cantilever has a small dent onthe side. The Stylus has an excellent tip, performs and sounds phenomenal.
This isa greatTT. I've used it for several months; it always performs flawlessly.
Comes with original box, packaging and instructions (printed copy).
Personally, Ireally like this TT and am hesitant to part with it. I will take extra care in packaging it. It will be safely double boxed and all loose parts (Platter, Counter weight, and Stylus)will be removed and secured.
Thanks for your interest and good luck offerding.
