That's a brand name I've not heard. I wonder if it's a private label or regional brand.

Miida was or is a pretty big importer/exporter who sold some equipment under their own name in the 70s or 80s. It was good midlevel equipment, and given that many japanese tables are actually built for for the ostensible manufacturer by CEC, it has a good chance of being practically identical to similar looking tables from other companies, and perhaps just a bit better since they were trying to establish their name in the US. As with most equipment, proper setup may be more important than paper specs.

And it only went for a dollar (+$22 shipping)! Somebody got a deal...

I am restoring mine, was buffing the dust cover with a power buffer, and it threw the cover off the table and smashed it I'm so mad at myself, no way I'll find a replacement for that

Thread from the dead! I found one of these at a yard sale a couple years ago for $5. Best money I ever spent! Little bit of cleaning and lube and...wow.

I first heard of Miida as a copier company. Then, perhaps 25 years ago, I picked up a used receiver of the same name. It's no Denon, but in a vague way it reminds me of the Sansui 331 551 etc.

Got it home and it sounds nice! Heavy plinth. I've never owned a manual TT. Is the platter supposed to spin even when the arm is on the rest?
