A rare chance to obtain an ex-BBC EMT 950 turntable in working order.
If you are looking at this then you probably know about these monster pieces of equipment. Weighing in at 70kg and costing the equivalent of over £40000 back around 1980-81 they became the industry standard for many broadcasters in Europe until the arrival of the CD made some of their advanced features obsolete. This one was the variant they made for the BBC – an EMT 9 950 347 to give it its full title.
For more information on these head to EMT enthusiast (understatement) Stefano Pasini’s site.

Brokerage Sale Information:
This is a brokerage sale by Soundgas on behalf of the owner. The record player is not at Soundgas and we have (sadly) not had a chance to play it ourselves. As such, we can offer no guarantee on this item beyond the 14 days you have to assess it. We only work in this way with trusted clients who really understand their gear. That said, it is the buyer’s responsibility to confirm details provided in the listing by the seller are to their satisfaction – if you have any questions at all please let us know before we arrange shipping.
As a brokerage sale, payment will be made to us but will be held in escrow for the seller until the buyer confirms satisfactory receipt of the item. The buyer has 14 days from receipt to raise any concerns, after which we will release funds to the seller. Full terms available on request.
We can't stop here, this is bat country! Our next auction (November 22nd) features some head-turning, show-stopping synths, however we also wanted to put the spotlight...
