Recommended Posts


    Item: Micro Seiki BL 91 turntable with SME 309 tonearm
    Location: blue mountains nsw
    Price: 3400
    Item Condition: very good
    Reason for selling: a very reluctant sale but want funds for another project  . 
    Payment Method: cash ,  PayPal +% , transfer
    Extra Info: a very special combo. the SME 309 should need no introduction - see online reviews. superb in styling and a breeze to use.   the micro seiki is simply a beautiful turntable both in form and function.  from vinyl engine specs site it

    "Features a massive, thick, 12.2 inch platter, employing special alloy bearings machined and polished with techniques usually reserved for turbojet engines.

    Micro Seiki engineers devised an exclusive oil-bath damping system to support the entire rotating assembly in complete isolation from all mechanical resonances.

    A precision-ground drive belt connects the rotating assembly to the brushless, servo-controlled motor with total isolation from motor generated vibration.

    In fact, the BL-91 (L) is probably the smoothest, most vibration-free device of its kind ever built. the plinth is multi-laminar natural wood finished with hand rubbed natural ebony... 16 kg"

    all original handbooks for SME and micro seiki. . please note the benz cart is NOT included in sale price .  please also see blemish on tonearm where it sits in holder ( common )and blemish on plinth. also the wire connectors on the tonearm head shell to cartridge have shabby insulation that is unnoticeable from above and does not affect performance. would prefer a pickup but will consider postage. preference for pickup.  will consider seperating - although the unit is functionally and aesthetically outstanding as it is. imageproxy.php?img=&key=6052995cfa95af68

Hi mikey

not at all. This has the aftermarket Thakker  belt from Germany which is an upgrade on the original. Both are still available as the BL 91 is very famous both in japan and abroad and is still widely sought after.


btw The art ensemble of Chicago have a great LP with fontella bass that is worth hunting
