Well.. they just always seem to be great performers.
Of the type 57xx family, Beogram 1700 was the newest of the “squares”.
It has the DC-servo controlled motor, it has the slimline tonearm with the round counterweight (read: easier adjustable tracking force) but still carries the good MMC20-series cartridge.
Good platter, and it doesn’t have the operation panel with the somewhat flimsy buttons found on the sloping models.

All in all it’s just a stabile and solid build causing few problems.

Only thing you could argue is that it doesn’t have datalink.
