Realistic LAB-420 Turntable, Shure V15 RS Cart
Even people who aren’t into hifi know Radio Shack, and anyone who knows Radio Shack knows the Realistic brand. In the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, Radio Shack/Realistic/Optimus gear was competing head-to-head with the Pioneers and Sansuis of the world.
The LAB series of turntables were developed as inexpensive alternatives to those mainstream brands but with similar features and well-conceived design. The LAB-420 turntable is a full-auto setup with a nice looking plinth, tinted dust cover, aluminum platter, and direct drive motor assembly. The S-shaped tone arm was designed to allow for optimal positioning of the needle in the groove from the beginning to the end of the record.
This LAB-420 is in excellent shape. All functions have been tested and work 100%. On top of it all, this deck has been fitted with a vintage Shure V15 “RS” cartridge; a perfect match for this setup.
Demos are encouraged in Lawrence MA.
