Dear @stereo5 : This was the Yamaha top of the line TT:
and this one a step down:
Some Agoners own it.
Regards and enjoy the MUSIC NOT DISTORTIONS,
As I mentioned on this forum once before, if you visit the audiophile salons in Tokyo, the 2000 GT is one of the most common of the high end turntables that you will find for sale, in secondhand condition of course. Conversely, I have never seen a GT 2000X for sale. They generally command more than twice the price of a nice 2000 GT, if you can find one at all. There was an optional gunmetal platter for these tables that weighed 18 kg, which is even more than the platter on the SP 10 Mark III. So I have no doubt that the 2000 can handle a 40 pound platter without much trouble for the motor.
