Micro Seiki DD-1?

just wondered if anyone has owned/heard one of these and is it any good? Presumably it was the entry level TT for this brand.

It MUST be better than the "Solid 1", there's none that can be worse.

It's a two-speed model, with a basic speed controller. You're right, it's pretty much their 'entry level' for a DD TT. Its okay as regular DD TTs go, with a nice vintage look somewhat typical of Micros of that era, but if you are looking for a nice DD TT with great sound and value, this probably isn't the best place to start. Something like a Technics 1200 series will best it sonically. The attached pic was taken from a Dutch seller's listing.
