Braun PS 500 Turntable, 60hz / 120v version, Dieter Rams designed, Record Player
Up for sale is this Braun PS 500 turntable. Designed by Dieter Rams and released in 1970-71. This is a rare 60hz / 120v USA-ready export model, just plug it in and go. The more common 50hz / 240v models that regularly come up for sale require both a step-down converter and decent-quality sine-wave generator to function properly here in the USA. Drive belt replaced a few years ago. Headshell pictured and included is a little iffy, dented on the rear and missing an internal plastic piece, consider it a bonus; I believe the vintage Stanton cartridge (also included) is functional but could use a new stylus. Automatic-shutoff functionality doesn’t quite engage when playing records normally, though it will engage if you manually move the tonearm past the runout groove.
