No way that will handle a 16" disc. The tonearm base is way too close and the tonearm isn't long enough. Plus the strobe light and the controls are higher than the turntable. However, it looks like a great turntable for everything else.

 Are there any off-the-shelf turntables available these days that can handle 16" transcription discs AND commercial 78 RPM records? I've been asked to find some possibilities, but NOT a high-end audiophile model.

I'm wondering if the Audio-Technica AT-LP120XUSB can handle 16" discs. It looks like it can, but perhaps someone here has some experience with it. This would be ideal if it checks out.
