 Nice clean example of an original (NOT upgraded) Mark 2 Ekos.

Both dials move freely and both vertical and horizontal bearings are smooth.

Sweeps across the horizontal plane with only a small anti skate force applied.

One minor blemish on arm tube just in front of yoke.

The dot is in fact red not silver as it looks in the photos due to the light.

Cable not included

Will be shipped in generic tonearm packaging.
