Yamaha YP-D6

The Yamaha YP-D6 is a beautiful device!
Built in 1977, it has a very clean look which gives it a fragile appearance, but it is a heavy device, the build quality is very good, typical of Yamaha.

S-shaped arm, Auto-Return at the end of the record.
Performance specs are good: signal to noise ratio 70dB, while wow/flutter is around 0.035%.
It runs well, stable, the controls are simple, located on the right with the strobe light on the opposite side.
It is a very good performing device, nice clean sound!
