Kenwood KP-990 Rare 80's Record Vinyl Player Audiophile Home Turntable  - 100V

**With Micro Seiki Headshell and Satin 14 Cartridge and Stylus**
 
A deceptive looking turntable hiding everything under near-blank looks. The KP-990 was released in mid to late 80's. These rare and highly sort after units were engineered for longevity, stability and excellent sound quality. Hidden under the plinth is a large X shaped die-cast frame which is the center of Kenwoods closed loop frame structure. This is die-cast base supports motor and arm and ensures shelf decoupling via massive rubber feet. The plinth as well as the dustcover rest on  the die-cast frame near the feet with no direct contact to motor, platter or arm. In this way the essential mechanical parts are shielded from vibrations captured by plinth or cover. This unit will auto lift at the end of a record. At the press of a button you can move the tonearm up and down. Both these functions save your records and styluses from any unnecessary wear.
