Listing Detail Tabs

This is the most desirable Akai turntable of them all - and probably one of the more desirable turntables in the great big galaxy of vintage turntables.

Rumour has it that Akai collaborated with Micro Seiki to design, if not manufacture, the Akai AP-006. The walnut veneer base, the brushed aluminium plinth and the sleek low-profile platter all combine to produce a truly gorgeous turntable that is reminiscent of Luxman at the time.

The Acos Lustre based tonearm is sublime – and can have the height adjusted to ensure the tonearm is horizontal depending on your cartridge. My daily use turntable is another Akai AP-006 (in slightly shabbier condition but it’s like my first-born warts and all) and I use various height cartridges on it and the height adjustment is a great feature to have (most turntables have arms that don’t adjust at all)

I have listened to, and peered under the hood many many turntables and this is the one turntable that has stuck with me and impressed me the most.

It’s a Direct Drive, made in Japan, fully manual turntable that’s an absolute joy to use - and it's a magnificent sounding turntable as well.

The wood veneer base is excellent shape and the aluminium top is in pretty good nick bar some tiny surface imperfections. However, stand back and they're largely invisible. It comes with the original lid that could do with an energetic buff and polish but it is fully intact without cracks or breaks.

It comes with a used but great condition Ortofon Cartridge and Stylus.

I could go on and on about this turntable for days but off to a lucky new owner she goes….it could be you :)

You can pay using your credit card, or in installments or cash...your call :)

I will send anywhere in NZ at buyers risk.
