I have the option of taking one of two Sansui turntables for free from my girlfriend's father. Off hand I can't remember the model number of the first one, but it's suspended, wood base, belt driven, S-shaped tonearm. When I asked about it here a while back someone told me it's ok but at the lower end of Sansui turntables. The other one I currently have sitting on my floor. It's a SR-333, direct drive, very heavy. I plugged it in and it works, and in a minute I'm going to test it out on headphones. The only thing that concerns me is that the entire tonearm assembly seems to move back and forth to a very minimal, almost unnoticeable, degree. So perhaps there are bearing issues? Anyway I'd like to know if this table is considered a potential performer or not. It would be nice to own a direct drive table for once, but I like the appearance of the other Sansui better.
