Pioneer Exclusive P3a:
One of the high-end "Golden Era" turntable gods!

The Pioneer Exclusive P3a, released in 1983 during the "Gold Era" of Japanese high-fidelity audio equipment, is a highly-regarded, well-crafted direct-drive turntable based on the Exclusive P3 that sounds as good as it looks. Like the P3, this P3a really is a high-end unit, and Pioneer themselves admitted they held back no restraint in terms of cost when designing this unit, seeking to produce simply the finest turntable possible. It features a number of impressive technological features which result in fabulous sound. The P3 has a slotless, coreless linear torque motor with quartz PLL control. It features a well-designed stable hanging rotor (SHR) system with a low-center-of-gravity rotating shaft, enabling exceptional performance in terms of rotational evenness (<0.003% error) and speed accuracy (<0.001% error). The motor and platter system is phenomenal, with a startup time of <0.3 seconds, despite the inertial mass of 700 kg cm^2. The result is incredibly stable rotation and highly accurate pitch reproduction. The Dynamic Resonance Absorber (DRA) tonearm was developed for this turntable, and it is phenomenal. By virtue of these advances and several others, the P3a remains a truly exceptional record player.

This turntable is in very good condition, with minor signs of age and use, including some scratches on both sides (see pictures),Tone arm rest cover is missing . It has been tested by our professional technician, confirming its flawless operation.
