Nakamichi Dragon Ct Turntable Great Condition Manual And Record Weight Incl. For Sale
You are offerding Nakamichi Dragon CT Computing Turntable.
The turntable is in very good physical condition and is fully functional. Everything works the way is supposed, including the absolute searching feature.
In case you are not familiar with this feature, the absolute center search will center the record to spin around its true center (most records spindle hole is not perfectly centered, this produces a left to right movement of the tonearm during playback increasing distortion).
The previous owner had this turntable totally recapped with high quality capacitors, including Nichicon Silmics, Panasonic FC and Black Gates. He also had the RCA connectors upgraded and the tonearm has been re-wired with (if I remember correctly) Cardas Litz wire.
I uploaded a video to Youtube to show center search operation, arm return, cueing, etc. The video title is " Nakamichi Dragon CT Turntable "
The Blue Point cartridge is not included in this sale, it was mounted to check performance the of TT.
Included with the turntable is the original Nakamichi Record weight (stabilizer) and a copy of the users manual
There is a Nakamichi turntables user group with plenty of good information on the Dragon CT and TX1000 turntables.
The Nakamichi Dragon turntable is a 2-speed, integrated turntable system.
The Dragon's platter is a massive glass/cast alloy design 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 most unusual feature of the Dragon turntable is the additional arm which is used to check for disc eccentricity, and the two-part platter which allows for it's correction.Specifications
