Around 1964 Lenco introduced the B 52. It continues Lenco’s light platter series. A newly designed tone arm, developed alongside with Lenco’s P 77 studio tone arm. First series had a 10 mm aluminum tone arm tube that changed later into a 8 mm aluminum tube. The early B 52’s did not have an anti skating feature, that was introduced later when the B 55 was released. The B 52 was available as a portable version, built into a plinth, as a chassis or built into a plinth with integrated power amplifier ( LAB 52 Stereo, Lenco 350 or Lenco 500 ).

In 1965 ExLibris sold the version with a wooden plinth for 118.00 CHF
