    Someone near me is selling a PL-A450B which looks very similar to the PL-520, but black? The only info I can find online about the A450B is in Filipino or Russian, does anyone know more about the table? Any idea on value? The front of the table reads (in English) "PIONEER FULL AUTOMATIC DIRECT DRIVE STEREO TURNTABLE MODEL PL-A450B"

    EDIT: Some more info translated from Japanese.

    DD full auto player which improved usability by concentrating the operation part on the front panel. It adopts DC servo · Hall motor using Hall element, achieving high SN ratio and excellent rotation accuracy. S-shaped arm is adopted as a tone arm. A dedicated motor is adopted for the arm drive during the auto operation, and it prevents influence on the rotation of the turn table. MM type cartridge is equipped. Oil dump elevation which can also manually operate is carried. Newly developed insulator is equipped.

    No personal experience, but it looks to be a quite capable table. Specs look very good too.

    Looks to be a black version of the PL-520 I had. Not a bad table, very distinct design. Only issue might be getting replacement parts if needed.
