This heavyweight PLL quartz servo controlled direct drive turntable sat at the top of Sansui's range in the late seventies and is probably the best turntable the company ever produced.
It's obvious that a significant amount of engineering effort went into it's development including some original thinking such as a very heavy resin-concrete base to suppress and control resonances.
It's a very attractive looking 'table too! These are very rare so expect to pay several hundred pounds if you ever manage to find one on eBay.
