Michell Focus 1
English

I have the opportunity to land one of these with an SME series 3 arm a Shure V15.5 cartridge. Anyone had/have one of these and are they any good? What would be a fair price for this?

Oooooo shiny. It's a good deck and arm, and I'd say between £2-300 depending on condition.

Focus 1s used to be pretty cheap, but prices are climbing - expect to pay £250-£300 for a mint condition model. Nice deck though.

Nice deck, I have one with an RB250 and Goldring Eroica.

Expect to pay £150 for a base deck, with a decent arm & cartridge around £250+. With the Michell unipivot arm (used to have one - damn - sold it a few yrs back)around £350...

Sound is good , also have a Thorens TD160/SME 3009 II imp/1022X, and a Michell Syncro/Technoarm/Elite..

I do enjoy vinyl...

Here's an armless one I think his BIN is a little optimistic but you can make him an offer for the SME 3009 tonearm together with the deck.

Thanks to all for your valuable input. Still negotiating with the seller via email, so things are going a little bit slow.
