JBE Series 3 slate turntable - Super rare Dynavector DV505 specification
Here is a JBE Series 3 turntable, optioned from the factory with a considerably larger Welsh slate plinth and lid in order to accommodate the large Dynavector DV505 tonearm. This was an option on the standard Series 3, but is rare to find. Main features of the JBE is the distinctive Welsh slate plinth and platter with its six aluminium discs.
This deck is in great condition, and the lid is also largely unmarked. I have machine polished it to get rid of the typical everyday polishing marks and light scratches. The main plinth is in great condition and is not chipped, as so many are. The unit comes with original Micro Seiki adjustable feet. The separate power supply and speed control unit is original and all knobs and controls are working perfectly.
I know quite a lot about these decks, having created the only dedicated website on the internet, just search 'JBE-turntables'. You will also find more pictures of this deck on my Hifi Addiction site.
While it may be possible to convert this deck to use other arms, it will involve some delicate work. If you are a Dynavector fan, then this is a mega deck to partner it with, and extremely rare.
The deck weighs a lot, so collection would be preferred for obvious reasons. I also travel around the country quite a bit, so it may be possible to meet you or deliver it... please inquire before buying. Finally, I will post if absolutely necessary (but only within the UK). I may do this in two boxes and the cost reflects the time and cost of doing this.
