1984-198?

The beginning of the “modern” series.  This style has the tonearm mounted on an armboard that has a crescent shape in front and round in the rear.  Same essential shape and dimensions as an ES-1.  Many assume that the ES-1 designation came later to differentiate the upgrades with that model.
