The 2500/2800 was designed and manufactured by the same company that has designed and produced the incredible Basis Work of Art turntable and the legendary Debut series, which has been in production for 20 years. The 2500/2800 platters and bearings are identical to the Debut items. The 2500/2800 uses the same motor as the Debut. The 2500/2800 suspension is an adaptation of the Debut suspension. It would be impossible for the 2500/2800 to be produced at its price without the simultaneous production of Debut parts. As for the design pedigree, it is undeniable: the same designer of the Work of Art and Debut designed the 2500/2800.
The 2800 is identical to the 2500 while adding the Basis Vacuum Record Hold-Down System. The Basis Vacuum Record Hold-Down System applies a controlled level of negative pressure to the underside of the record guaranteeing a perfectly flat record that is so effectively coupled to the platter that record resonance is totally eliminated.
Super condition trade-in Basis Audio 2800 Signature turntable with Vector Model 3 tonearm and VTA Micrometer, which allows the user to precisely measure & repeat VTA settings (the VTA Micrometer is a measurement system, not a VTA adjustor). The 2800 model is identical to the 2500 model, but adds the Basis Vacuum Record Hold-Down System.
Turntable comes in original boxes & packing with owner’s manual and all pictured accessories.
Turntable is rated 8/10 for very minor cosmetic wear consistent with age and use.
