Empire 598 Ii Troubador // Belt Drive Turntable / Restored / Glass Dust Cover

$2,499.00

Beautiful, elegant, and oh so sweet sounding. There’s no wonder why this turntable has a cult following. This is one of our favorite sounding tables. This 598 II absolutely lights up the room. We've sanded down and completely refinished the plinth and dust cover in a darker stain to create a more dramatic contrast with the brass and then replaced the original plastic with glass that has been sandblasted along the edges. Then we lined the inside of the plinth with dynamat to add more mass and reduce vibration transfer which has taken this table to a whole new level. Like most troubadours of this era, there is some minor discoloration on the anodized parts.

 

The original Empire logo badge is available to be added back onto the table. We prefer the look of it clean, but we're happy to do that for you if you'd like.
