    There is also a Technics SL 1210 MK 2 But is listed at $800. I might be able to get it cheaper, but I don't know if it is worth it, but a lot of the vintage good gear holds its value pretty well.

    I just wish you lived closer, as I have a passable Onkyo turntable, and a Pioneer PL-950 I would just about give you. Both have belts, but no cartridges. I HATE shipping turntables...

    B&O's, lovely to look at, lovely to behold, keep lot's of money aside for when they don't do as told!!

    Laz and friends,
    Well wow I have been learning so much lately. I saw and listened to the Technics SL 1210 MK2 today and fell in love. He would sell it to me for $650 with a Shure set up. The lights on the top and bottom were dancing and the middle was staying pretty steady, if that makes any sense. Still learning this record stuff.

    $650?? I guess he saw you coming. You could drive down here and pick up my Onkyo & Pioneer for less in gas money...

    Yes I don't really want to pay over $300 for a good player. I could drive to Lees, but Missouri seems a bit far.
