Micro Seiki MB-18

I'm looking into buying a turntable for the first time in 20 + years and have found a Micro Seiki MB-18 in mint operational and cosmetic condition. I've done a bit of research on Micro Seikis but couldn't find much info on this one other than the fact that it is an entry level belt driven table. I really love the way it looks and the brand seems to have a good reputation. I don't consider myself an audiophile but do appreciate quality equipment, listen to music often and plan on re-starting a (mini) record collection. Any opinions or additional info would be appreciate it. Thank you
Hi Guitarman,
Look up the Manual for the model MB-14 on the Vinyl Engine website.

In it, I see that one slides the weight onto the arm until neutral balance is achieved.
Mark that Zero point by turning just the numbered ring to Zero.
Then grab the rear of the weight assembly ?? (can't remember) and crank it until you get your desired tracking force readout on the numbered ring.

There is no set-screw to lock that weight in place, but back when we sold these, I don't remember the tracking weight adjustment being a hassle for anyone (33 years ago, sorry).

I recommend a Platter Matter record mat for it or perhaps an AudioQuest one.

Best regards,
I owned an MB-14, and Royj's description of setting tracking force is spot on. However, based on what I observed then and know from far greater experience now, set the antiskating at no more than half of the indicated value. In fact, if you have the time and the ear, start at zero antiskating and work your way up in small increments. Micro Seiki, along with nost of the turntable manufacturers of the day, grossly over-estimated the amount of antiskate needed. The MB-18 should sound great when tweaked for modern sensibilities.

Good advice, David, thanks.
I did not realize the anti-skating was that far off on that arm.
