If I sold my 1200mk2, I would want $800 but buyer would also get a DJ flight case for it and a extra dustcover. There is a reason these are some of the most highly regarded TT's ever made

    I like Thorens to, had a shit load of them but my fave was a TD-320mkII. Wish I never sold it but the Technics 1200mk2 is just as good if not better, especially for reliability plus you don't have to mess with a belt. I have never been a fan of belt drives compared to DD's
    The only TT I like with a belt drive is the old Rek O Kut with the 14 lb platter. I will have one of those some day when I have some time to mess with it. Until then the SL1200's do just fine.

    So as far as the 3 rows on the platter go, when a record is spinning, what should I be looking for exactly?

    One stands still instead of going forward or backwards.
