Yamaha YP-D10

October   1 9 7 7 october 1977

Rare LP record turntable of the superlative yet easy-to-use kind : a bigger YP-D8.

The tonearm seems like a simplified preview of the ones built for the very successful GT-750 / GT-1000 / GT-2000...
Very low friction rates at any rate, even lower than the famous EPA-100, and better than that of the GT-2000 !

1kg zinc diecast armbase, low-impedance output cables (0,94 Ohm), 6,4mm thick particle board base, diecast aluminium alloy headshell, adjustable VTA

Seemingly built and/or engineered by Micro Seiki - I don't know much more except it seems very very well built with specs perhaps leaning on the "old style"...
A respectable 16kg to lift if you feel like lifting audio turntables instead of doing push-ups.

128,000¥ didn't bring esoteric high-end in 1978 but it sure brought quality and durability.
