More Information about Technics EPA-500 system tonearm.

Technics R&B series EPA-500 system tonearm:

EPA-B500 base.

EPA-A501H tonearm.

SH-50P1 stylus pressure gauge.


This was bought in about 1990 from an audio dealership in the UK where it had apparently been a display model until the latter half of the '80s, after which it was reboxed and kept in their stockroom. Since then the stylus balance has had occasional use but the other components have remained in storage.

Although there are some very slight indications of handling on the arm and base the headshell appears to have never had a cartridge fitted so (to the best of my knowledge) the tonearm is virtually unused.

The original cable, fitting hardware and templates are all included, as is the all-important counterweight transport holder.

Despite having not been unpacked for nearly 30 years the mechanical parts are in perfect working order; the bearings move freely and the arm lift, counterweight setting and VTA adjustment are fully functional.


A few items are missing:

Instruction manual/technical info. Free download from:

Batteries for stylus balance: Standard SR44 x 2.

Two headshell leads (?). These from Audio Technica would be suitable AT6101 - Cartridge to headshell PCOCC lead wires | Audio-Technica (or there are more exotic alternatives by Cardas, Furutech, Clearaudio, etc.).


Weight: 1.5kg.
