FIDELITY RESEARCH FR 1 MK2



This is the legendary Fidelity Research FR-1 MK2 designed by Ikeda.
Originally introduced in 1967, as an upmarket model at more than twice the price of the original MK1 version.




Wonderfully musical, the FR mated well with higher mass tonearms.
Despite the age, it nears the listener to the music, letting music to flow in a free way.
Another GREAT performer from the past.
