Description:
Rare vintage CEC BA-300 audiophile turntable fitted with Shure M55E cartridge.

CEC was the first Japanese manufacturer of turntables and has been producing them since 1954. They became an OEM manufacturer and supplied top Japanese brands such as Marantz, Sony, Teac and Kenwood who rebadged them as their own. CEC own branded turntables are therefore quite rare.

The turntable is in very good condition for it's age. I would place it around early to mid 70's. The body cosmetically is in very good condition and looks clean. The dust cover is fully functional but was broken near the hinges when I acquired it (quite common on old turntable lids) so I repaired it. There are scratches on the lid.

This is a high quality turntable with a solid platter, high quality tonearm with adjustable tracking weight and anti-skating controls and comes fitted with the highly regarded Shure M55E cartridge. The turntable is belt-drive operated and functions correctly at both 33/45rpm speeds. The auto-return facility is not functional but this is no great loss as auto-return mechanisms are not well regarded in audiophile circles. The tonearm therefore is lifted manually using the tonearm lift lever or by hand.

The turntable is rated at 240v and works correctly on Thai power. 5900B or near offer.
