Offered is an American made mid-70's BIC 980 stereo turntable. It's a two speed (33 & 45 rpm) belt drive with some very nice features. First, it has adjustable pitch control and illuminted stroboscope. That's a real plus for a belt drive turntable. Next is it can be operated in automatic or manual modes. It even have a side repeat function. This model was also capable of playing multiple records with the interchangeable stacking spindle (not included but readily available). The arm cueing is well dampened and there is an anti skate setting. Speaking of the tonearm the design is quite sophisticated and low mass suitable for light tracking, high compliance cartridges. On this arm the cartridge is a Audio Technical with elliptical diamond stylus. The base has a wood skirt and there is a clear acrylic set on style dustcover. Of course this one has been disassembled, cleaned, lubricated, calibrated, and tested.The BIC turntables are often confused and misunderstood. They are simple, elegant, and worthy competitors to the stalwart Japanese and German manufactured turntables during the '70's.
