key features simplify use, add convenience
Andover Audio just announced the new Spin Deck 2 turntable, budget priced at $299 complete with Audio Technica AT3600 cartridge and acrylic dustcover. The "starter" turntable now features electronic speed control and automatic end of side shut-off and arm return. The Audio-Technica 3600 comes pre-mounted for easy set-up, but can easily be upgraded.
The new Spin Deck 2 also includes a by-passable built-in MM phono preamp. In addition, for greater speed accuracy,the belt-drive system features a low-vibration DC motor with internal electronic servo regulation. The sturdy MDF plinth is available in black or white. Soft rubber vibration isolating-feet provide stability and a degree of isolation.
That's a lot for a very low price. Can be ordered directly from Andover Audio, or purchased through participating dealers.

It looks a lot like a Pro-Ject. And if it has all the qualities, it will be a good deal. Especially since this brand often benefits from huge discounts.
