For sale CA Emotion SE with Satisfy carbon tonearm and ceramic magnetic bearing -fully boxed ( could be shipped , ask for postage cost) , cartridge not included
I bought this table 3 years ago from guy working for Soundfowndation (one of CA dealers) , TT is in very good visual condition , headshell and arm tube insert has been replaced along with brand new CA cartridge tags ( I also have another one as a spare) , comes with 2 silent belts , bearing oil , small spirit level , manual, clever recod clamp
only flaw I can find is the grab screw marks on the arm pillar

Almost forgot about , I have made to order another plinth in black acrylic to suit SME tonearms , it comes with cutout for the sled , hole for the main bearing , I haven't tapped M12 holes for support legs as I thought double sided 3M pads would be as good . I started setting it up but then I bought another turntable and it went to the cupboard . It could be used with tonearms other than SME if used with one of this:
Some pictures I found on my mobile:




I can sell it separately for £200 or £950 with turntable - arm not included obviously , it's very easy to swap and works nicely , I'll take some more pics in a week

Black acrylic plinth for SME and other tonearms , elongated cutout for tonearm is not particularly neat but won't be seen under the sled


Manual and all other paperwork


Top layer of the box , tonearm would be secured against any movement if shipped


Box with auxiliaries - small round spirit level , bearing oil, screwdriver and allen keys , motor pulley , clever clamp , tonearm insert plus 2 headshells (one unused) , anti-skate screw ,


marks from grab screws holding/tightening tonearm , not visible as they are within the arm collar


Second layer - turntable plinth


Third layer - platter , there are some minor scuffs but couldn't capture with camera


Assembled tonearm and CMB spindle


and fully assembled , I didn't realize I had 3 Silent Belts , grab screws on motor pulley are nylon so care need to be taken when doing them up , tonearm is directly wired so no need for extra RCA interconnect

Very nice package. Not unreasonable price and its a looker. Longshot, but if the buyer does opt for the SME arm alternative, I would be very interested in the Satisfy on its own.
