     NAD  5120  belt drive turntable  - 7th unit :
If you wish to use more than one phono pickup cartridge in the NAD 5120 turntable, you can purchase extra plug-in tonearms
On each arm you can set balance, VTF and DVA (dynamic vibration absorber) frequency and damping
Then you can quickly swap cartridges by unplugging one arm and plugging in another, with just re-adjustment of anti-skating and cueing height

On the 5120 the counterweight is not mounted rigidly to the tonearm but rather suspended on a spring, forming a compliant assembly that is free to vibrate. When correctly tuned its vibration matches and cancels the fundamental arm / cartridge resonance

Like most NAD equipment the 5120 turntable is very basic in appearance and simple to use,
- but once it has been set up properly, you can achieve surprisingly excellent vinyl replay performance

    Restoration :
   This 7th NAD 5120 has custom motor bearing supports and balanced platter
   Using a slightly loose belt to help decoupling of the motor to platter, for greatly improved silence between tracks
