This one will certainly dazzle your friends as it will play 6 sides of 6 LP's in any order up to 27 tracks. It also has pitch control and a built in stroboscope. People sometimes mistakenly call this type of tonearm "S" shaped. This is actually a "J" shaped tonearm. "S" shaped ones have come under criticism for having too much mass. The "J" shaped ones are more efficient.
This is the remote and it takes a 9 volt battery. Only on the remote can you adjust the volume of the cartridge output. In the past some people have had problems with the cartridge audio output. The remote control volume control is the first thing to check when this issue happens.
This is the aluminum satelite that plugs into the back of the deck just opposite of the RCA connectors for the audio output. It nice to have the RCA cables not hardwired to the deck. The satelite cable is about twelve feet long.
Tonearm with the "electronic eye" that sits on the front of the headshell assembly. Tracks as low as 3/4 gram. Has separate pitch control for both speeds and anti-skating control. Cueing control is one of the red buttons on the front of the deck.
The On/Off switch is a replacement to the original. Notice that there is not a volume control like there is on the remote.
There are two screws that are used to lock down the platter and tonearm. They are both part of the same floating suspension. This is considered to be a high end feature not found in most mid grade turntables.
The platter is a heavier gauge aluminum. The flat belt that drives the platter is a new replacement as of 2017. It is not exact. The exact replacement is not made anymore.
The mat that sits on top of the aluminum platter is either a heavy gauge rubber or very flexible, softer plastic.
The cover is in very good shape and only has normal scuffs. The cover has been polished and buffed using a multi-step plastics polish (Novus). There are; however, internal cracks around each of the acrylic cover's hinges. They do not appear to have reached the surface. Has been like this for years.
March 1979 Popular Mechanics ADC Accutrac +6 Article
ADC (Acoutsic Dynamics Corporation)
Model 3500 6+ Electronic Automatic Programmable Multiplay Turntable, Circa 1979
A collection of images from a reconditioned fully functioning belt driven, two speed (33 1/3 and 45) turntable. Considered to be of near audiophile quality back in 1979 since the materials used were not as quality driven as the ADC Accutrac 4000; on the other hand, the 3500 +6 is more sophisticated. With the remote control you can play any set of songs in any order. The unit will gently lift and lower records and also includes volume control on the remote. Retailed for a little under $375 back in 1979.
The camera flash makes the unit look more dusty or dirty than it really is. You can zoom in on the images if you mouse over them. During autoplay zoom is disabled.
Valued in the range of $250 - $375 (with cartridge included)
