Own 2 technics SL-1200mk2’s
best TT ever built!
And this is only an entry level into SL1200 series, i also have a pair of Sl1210 mkII for more than 20 years, fully upgraded in the last 7 years, not in the main system, but it was my first adult turntable :)
The next level for me was this SP-10 mkII in teak wood plinth with Reed 3p tonearm and Glanz 61 MF cartridge.
And not so long ago Technics returned with new turntables, different models with prices from $899 to $4000 in SL1200 series.
I just don't understand why people are so brainwashed with those rega and related belt drives.
