    Can anyone tell me something about a turntable?

    I've got a Philips 685 Mark II turntable, can anyone tell me what it's worth? I'm interested in selling it because it has a European power plug, and I've been trying for months to find a voltage converter/plug adapter for it to work in the US. Anyone know what I could get out of this?

    Even if you convert the power, the turntable is probably calibrated for 50 Hz and you are driving it with 60 Hz. So I would expect any music played on it to be higher in pitch.

    It's worth depends on how much you want for it.

    I've seen a similar model go for about $70 USD, I think I could safely get $50 out of it.

    as long as it's in good condition ebay sorta confirms that. A compatible stylus is about $25 if that helps
