Elac Miacoro 660 Turn Table - Any good?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

A mate found one of these in hard rubbish that looks to be in reasonable condition.

 

The Elac speakers seem to be well regarded, are the TT's as respected?

 

Does anyone know anything about this specific model?

 

Thanks

Back in the 1970s, there was Elac and Dual. These were the heavy hitters in the auto turntables from Germany. I owned a Dual 1218 and a mate owned the Elac Miracord 660. We fitted them with the same cartridge (Shure M93ED). After careful alignment, we compared the two turntables using the Shure test record. Rumble and isolation was pretty much the same for both turntables (excellent). HOWEVER, the trackability of the Dual far exceeded the ability of the Elac. The tone arm on the Elac was far too heavy. That said, the Shure test record was a pretty tough test for any turntable and, for the price you paid, the Elac is a bit of a bargain. It was, in it's day, a decent turntable. Good, heavy platter, reasonable tone arm and should run for decades, after a good lube and service.
