Pioneer PL-12E Turntable


Pioneer PL-12E Turntable

A great condition Pioneer 12E turntable. A leap ahead for Pioneer in 1973.

Fully manual – belt drive – a fantastically reliable machine..

This one checks out all OK and a new drive belt has been fitted. Cosmetically in excellent condition with wooden plinth – looking great.

This is a great manual turntable, sounding good with Shure cartridge & needle.
