Photos taken 7/7/10
Bearing condition: near mint A Silicon Nitride Ceramic bearing ball is included. Screw down record clamp is standard Teres 2-piece design; stainless steel and Delrin. Also comes with a non-threaded spindle pin for use without the clamp.
The platter is the optional lead shot loaded version. This is a significant upgrade over the plain acrylic and a beautiful bit of workmanship.
The acrylic armboard is cut for Rega RB 250 -thru-1000 series tonearms.
Motor and pod are Signature II spec. In the motor pod is the well known Maxon A-max 110189 DC motor fitted with platinum brushes for silent cog-free operation. The motor pod has 3 tiny stainless steel cone feet that thread into the bottom.
A tape drive pulley is mounted to the Maxon DC motor shaft that can handle magnetic tape or mylar ribbon of widths up to ~1/2 inch. Also included is the original silk thread drive pulley should the new owner wish to try silk thread. Most Teres owners prefer the tape drive.
The power supply is the standard Tamura transformer which converts from 120 vac 60 hz. North American version.
The battery option, with smart charger, and a 19 amp/hr sealed lead acid battery is also included.
The turntable is sold with 3 very heavy, (massive) tapered rubber feet that thread into the Teres base. The base was drilled and tapped at Teres Audio for 1/4-20 inch threads. Any cone footer using this thread size can be used, or alternatively cone feet which do not thread in may also be used.

Optional: can be sold with an Expressimo modified Rega RB250 tonearm
The Expressimo tonearm is a Rega RB250 that has been modified by Expressimo as follows:
The counterweight has been drilled and tapped to accept machine screw fasteners that allow the attachment of additional weights to the back side. In case we need to fine tune the arm/cart resonance to to meet the needs of a low compliance MC cartridge, such as the DL-103R. I can supply head weights for this as well.
