I've been quite impressed with the build quality of the Sony PS-X5. What a tank! Sony used a stalwart direct drive motor with dead-on speed. The tonearm is high quality and this one holds a well regarded Audio Technica AT-95E cartridge with elliptical diamond stylus. The platter has strobe markings and there is an illuminated stroboscope.
The body is very heavy as it is a die cast aluminum. The clear acrylic dustcover is in fantastic condition too.
Oh, almost forgot....the PS-X5 is fully automatic. The controls are simple and the functions are all working. It is not easy finding a well made, fully automatic direct drive. Don't miss your chance to own this one!
