My latest purchase an almost mint Garrard 401.  Could not decide between 301 and 401
but at the price I paid and condition this is superb. 

Solid British Engineering - will last a lifetime if propeerly serviced and placed in a
solid damped plinth.My next purchase will be a solid Cherry plinth!
Very expensive but will allow this classic to fly.

Anybody got experience with this deck and which arms go well with this
 and a Koetsu Rosewood Signature

Solid Walnut Plinth and SME3012 mk 2 Arm and Koetsu Rosewood Sig Cart.  Total weight circa 40kg

Looks good and sounds very good too.  Problem finding correct arm spacer for the deck

Now extensive testing and tweaking to get the best from my deck which has been over 1 yr in preparation!
