      Thank you. I bought mine new in '79. Complete refurb last year with real walnut veneer. The photo doesn't do it justice. I'm currently using a Stanton 681EEE cartridge. I've tried a few, and I keep coming back to the 681EEE. It works very well with this turntable, and there's still a few available. I think I'll try the Ortofon 2M Bronze when it's time to replace this one.


      John Mathies did the refurb. His website is Turntable Restorations. My PL 530 is the top right here.

      use a 2m bronze on my main set up systemdrk iix  sounds good but still tuning,  way more sensitive, picks up a lot of noise, don't play a lot of vinyl  so a slow but good progression
