  • Empire Troubadour 398 Turntable   
  • Original Empire 980 Tonearm   
  • Empire 888SE Phono Cartridge   
  • Formerly known as Dyna-Empire in the 50’s then taking on the Empire Scientific name a few years later, Empire is an audio company well remembered for their advanced Troubadour turntables, high-end phono cartridges, & Grenadier speaker systems. This US based company prided themselves in introducing distinctive components to the marketplace that not only performed to a high level, but contained a style that set them apart for the pack.

    Originally introduced in 1963, the Troubador 398 was one of Empire’s shinning achievements. It is a masterfully engineer turntable with an eye-catching functional design, though its beauty is a far 2nd to its ability to reproduce the record with amazing fidelity. When released it exceeded every broadcast specification for professional playback equipment and almost 50 years later it is still outperforming many of the top esoteric modern turntables on the market.  Rotation is extraordinarily stable and quite. As you would expect it has extremely low wow & flutter and an almost nonexistent rumble. There are only two moving parts, a powerful hysteresis synchronous motor and a heavy aluminum turntable platter both individually dynamically balanced to the peak of perfection. Other features and functions of the 398 include:
      

      Turntable has been tested and is performing nicely. All speeds are accurate. Dyna-lift is operating as it should. Cartridge sounds great, no obvious wear on stylus. Cosmetically, there are few minor scratches and nicks on wood base. Turntable finish has very minor age related marks upon close inspection. There is a nick on the  front/right corner of turntable. There is a build date in underside of casting 10/14/63

      This is a sale so it will go to the highest buyer. Winning buyer pays $43.75 for careful shipping, packaging, & insurance in the continental U.S.
