Gorgeous Rotel RP-3000 Turntable + SME 3009 + Rega Cart for Sale

Wow! New for sale, this gorgeous, fully serviced and set-up vintage Rotel RP-3000 direct drive turntable.

This stunning, vintage Rotel RP-3000 comes with legendary SME 3009 Series 2 tonearm and Rega Bias MM cartridge, for just $995. It is finished in real wood veneer and has some great features. The Rotel RP-3000 is a 2-speed, manual control, direct-drive turntable system with pitch control. It also has a practical built-in spirit level, which allows you to get your deck perfectly level, using the adjustable feet, or shims under the feet which I prefer.

The deck itself is beautiful, with a smoked acrylic lid and a real walnut finish. You have a killer deck when you add in a legendary SME 3009 S2 Improved tonearm, worth around $600, and a lovely warm low-hours Rega Bias MM cartridge. This is ideal for anyone wanting their first proper turntable setup, or someone perhaps upgrading from a belt-drive or inferior DD machine.

Naturally, I’ve performed the tedious multi-step setup process for you, saving you time and money. This includes setting tracking force, anti-skate, lateral balance, arm ride height, arm alignment, and cartridge alignment. I’ve also recently serviced the turntable.

This awesome vintage turntable setup sounds absolutely amazing and is looking for a good home. If interested, get in touch!
