Nakamichi Dragon Ct Turntable, Very Rare, In Great Condition:
Nakamichi DRAGON-CT Computing Turntable
This is an unbelievable Turntable. They don't show up very often, it has taken a long time for me to finally list this legendary piece of Nakamichi history.
The Dragon nameplate is only reserved for the ultimate in any of the offerings from NAK. Most everyone know about the Dragon Tape Deck, but much more rare is the Dragon-CT.
As you can hopefully tell by the pictures the unit is in great shape. The only thing that needs to be mentioned about the condition is the clear plastic Dust cover, it has light surface scratches from normal use. I believe there is a product called NOVUS that is supposed to "lighten" them up. But everything that matters is in great shape and works as it should. You will not be disappointed. I am an avid Nakamichi fan/collector and this item is the best of my collection. Letting it go because I have a dedicated theater now, instead of a proper listening room. It deserves to be the center of a high end analog system.
The most unique feature is the Absolute Center Search (there is a video on youtube titled "Nakamichi dragon CT Turntable" by theprof that shows this function in action. It may seem a bit complicated (it really not), its just COOL.
The conventional side of the Turntable is just as amazing: It is a 2-speed, integrated tt system. It has a massive glass/cast alloy platter with a dense rubber mat. The fully adjustable subchassis is high mass and suspended. The motor is a direct drive type with electronic speed control and switching. The Center search requires an additional arm.
Specs: Platter mass: Speeds 33.33 and 45 Wow and Rumble: Tonearm: gimble bearings, detachable arm Tonearm effective mass: Tonearm bearing friction: 40mg lateral, 20mg Dimensions: Weight: 44 lb 1oz
Packaging and Shipping will be very expensive (should be shipped in three different boxes!) I will charge a flat $80 fee for US addresses, I will pick up the difference.
Local pick up is encouraged and highly recommended.Please Note The MC-500 Cartridge (pictured on Turntable) is not included. I will be offering it in a later sale.
