Technics SL-1950

Can you give me information regarding the Technics SL-1950 turntable. I have been assembling a starter system for my teenage son and yesterday, for $6, at a Goodwill store, I bought a Technics SL-1950 turntable for my teenage son.. Aside from being direct drive it appears to be a very nice unit. After I replace the cartridge will this be a good table? Can you give me more information? Thanks!
There is a website that gives some info about Technics turntables.It is Hope this helps.
-If I remember correctly, it was a changer with a removable stacking spindle. And don't sneer at direct drive - it's definitely more turntable than your NAD.
Get some official motor bearing oil (about $5.95 from and lube up that old--probably dry--bearing. You'll be surprised how quiet and smooth it becomes.
