TECHNICS SL-BD22 Belt Drive Turntable.  Made in Japan. 

A well designed semi-automatic slimline deck which was a favourite 80s turntable. It's Frequency Generator motor and belt drive configuration give superb pitch stability. Pitch is variable and works precisely with the strobe light and holds pitch unerringly . 

Equipped with original Technics P mount P34 cartridge with good stylus: mini 4 pin push fit with retaining bolt. Supplied with stylus protector.

Deck itself is in very good cosmetic condition, plinth is virtually unmarked. Re-polished dust cover top has some light orbital polishing surface marks and scuffs. Hinges were tired so new ones fitted. New output cables with phono plugs and new belt. 

Semi-automatic operation: Starts by moving tonearm to platter which switches motor on; manual cuing then DOWN lowers arm; 33 and 45 rpm shifting between speeds is by a electronic switching. Automatic lift, return and motor cut at the end of a side.

Die cast Aluminium platter with mat on bearing mounted in moulded top plate along with tonearm; motor is semi suspended; provides a good platform for the cartridge. 

Motor runs silently, gets to operating speed immediately. Main bearing is nice and tight. Arm bearings, cuing dampers all work perfectly.

Technics tonearm with factory adjusted tracking weight and anti skating so no complex setting up required. Stylus overhang and alignment is also be set for you. Cartridge simply pulls out of tonearm mounting if you unscrew the retaining bolt.

Instruction and service manuals from the excellent and free vinyl engine site:

Sound is very clear, detailed with good separation. Bass has good pitch differentiation at low frequency.

A well designed, no fuss turntable which enables you to get back to your vinyl collection or access the huge amount of dirt cheap vinyl that is now available everywhere. Not embarrassed by being played through a decent system and well suited to budget and mid range hi-fi systems. Good partner for amplifiers such as NAD and Rotel as well as more obviously Technics' own. Requires either a pre/integrated amplifier with an onboard phono stage or an offboard phono preamplifier plugged into AUX socketry. 

Dimensions: 430 x 93 x 375mm

Weight: 3.6kg

220-240V 50/60Hz model.
