Sony PS-X600

Third generation and lower-end versions of the Biotracer tonearm - but far more reliable than the original PS-B80 :)

The PS-X600 sold like hotcakes, really : there are tens of thousands worldwide.

Above in the lineup was the tangential, excellent and well reviewed in Japan PS-X800 and the rare PS-X700.

Fourth gen' would be the PS-X555ES and... there would be no fifth generation.

Simple, reliable and surprisingly musical - don't hesitate to put a good MC cartridge on your PS-X600, like the Denon DL-160 !

The 200g lighter PS-X500 is the same, sans automatic disc-size selector or side repeat switch.
