Technics SL-110 with SME3009-II Arm

When I first saw one of these a few years ago I thought it was the best looking turntable I'd ever seen. Oversize at 51cm wide it was made to take a 12 inch arm if required. It took me a while to find one for myself and after many turntables it is still my favourite Technics.
Extremely well built and with no exotic parts or secrets, this is a hall of fame model to live on in decades to come.

The turntable and arm are in excellent condition. Dark tinted lift off cover is mint.
