    Pioneer PL-550?

    Hi all

    The electronics repair shop in my neighborhood has a Pioneer PL-550 turntable for sale.

    Anyone familiar with this table? Anything to look out for when I'm checking it over? Any tweeks?
    I'm not expecting it to be the greatest item of hi-fi ever; I'm actually interested in it because I'm re-imagining my bedroom set-up as a 70's man about town system and this table really looks the part . . . but I'm still hoping it will sound decent.

    What says the Wam?
    And if you play Defender, I can be your hyperspace.
