    Kenwood KD-2000

    Bought this for $5 today. Fully functional. Cleaned up really nice. I have yet to listen to it yet. It's got a really nice arm...

    Enochrome, I am going to plug it into the SX650 to test it...

    John did you really have the 2055, or is it a random pic you chose?

    Yes the Kenwood 2055 was my first. Sadly at the time I never thought to use the appropriate cartridge. High compliance cartridges were all the rage but I should have used a moving coil cartridge.

    I am looking forward to a proper headshell with a bit of mass. I am mounting the Blue Point to the headshell it came with, an alloy SME universal type.

    It's what you would expect for the age, yet well taken care of. No glaring scratches or gouges. I only use a dustcover if I am not planning to use the TT for a bit.

    It's a fake marble material, however still quite sunstantial.

    The fake marble is a resin. It must have been chosen for its resonance...or lack thereof.

    im trying to restore this table and am having trouble under the hood. would anybody be able to post a picture of the insides where the RCA cables connect to the tone arm and posts? It would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Its fairly simple its just 6 screws next to the feet on the bottom of the table
