Made in Scotland. The Q-Deck was a two-speed (33 and 45rpm) semi-automatic, belt-drive turntable with off board DC power supply.

The deck comes supplied with a Japanese manufactured (Jelco), straight tone arm suitable for cartridges ranging from 4-12g and equipped with a calibrated anti-skate dial.

The arm comes fitted with a Grado phono cartridge.

Specifications

Type: belt drive

Speeds: 33.33 and 45rpm

Review

Well engineered and good sounding low cost package which is both easy to set up and use - £180 HiFi Choice 1992

Well balanced, inviting sound; none of the edginess or imprecision associated with cheaper turntables.

Condition:

Clean no odors. Dust cover has some fine scratches, yet displays very nicely. The ac power plug is an aftermarket and hard wired to the unit.

Tested:

The Grado cartridge and stylus is in excellent condition. The unit reproduces music brilliantly, crisp clear and accurate. The auto tonearm lift at the end of the record needs adjustment, as it won't function until the arm is far over towards the label, my guess is there's a screw that will adjust this function, but without the owners manual I don't know how.
