    Item Description

    Here is a very nice, heavy, excellent sounding 1982 Hitachi HT-561 direct drive fully automatic turntable.
    Comes with a brand new Azden YM-10E phono cartridge.
    The table is in very good condition with only minor wear to the plinth and dustcover.
    It is mysteriously missing the front right foot.
    Everything works very smoothly, quietly and accurately as designed.
    You can also use this table semi-automatically if you prefer. I've used it both ways with no issues.
    Reminds me quite a bit of the JVC QL-YXF series tables.
    The controls are conveniently located outside the dustcover.
    VTA is also adjustable by simply turning one screw.
    The 6 rating is mainly for age, light cosmetic wear and the missing right front foot.
    It operates and sounds like a 10 !
    Coast to coast shipping is $45.00 Perhaps a bit less if you live closer.
    As usual, I will carefully prepare and properly package the table for safe transit.
    Thank you for viewing my listings.
