Man, would I love to own this turntable!

Impressive looking but I'd rather keep my Sp10...

Stop rubbing it in Michael. I will never forget you buying that one from under me. :)

 

I don't know why I hesitated so much on it at the time, esp at that price!

 

Yes, I have no doubt that your SP10 would give the Sony a good run for its money and a way better buy at the price you paid for it. (If I recall correctly about a fifth the asking price of the Sony?)

 

 

 

Maybe I can wrestle Owen from his one?

LOL not rubbing it in but the SP10 offers great scope for customising - arm, plinth etc.

 

The Sony is basically a closed system.

 

You may have noticed the professional PS-X9 was given a consumer model number, whereas the last super Sony consumer TT's (eg. TTS-8000) got the pro naming convention.

 

Haven't you got a house full of turntables ?

 

There are zilllions of SP10's - sooner or later you'll find another one.

 

I'll give you dibs on my one.

 

;)

At this stage I might even try a Technics 1200 to dip my toes into a direct drive turntable, as I've never spent any real time with one before..

 

Then again, that Thorens 125 Mk2 on TardMe at the moment http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=799584376 is very tempting.

 

By all accounts, a TT that's been over-shadowed by the SP10, albeit belt driven.

I've done the sl1200 route - no comparison to a good sp10 !

 

there's also a technics sl120 on tardme - sl1200 minus the stock arm.

 

and a thorens td160 with grace 707 for $1200.

Had A Thorens TD160, but my gyppy wooden floors made it bounce with every footfall, which drove me  crazy.

 

Otherwise, it was a very good machine.

As Tardme has pulled my auction for the PS-X9 due to it being of foreign origin (110v) then Im of course open to offers if anyone is seriously interested. Otherwise its back off to the States. Its actually a pretty amazing turntable and gives my fully tricked out SP10 Mk 3 a run for its money.

Tardme indeed !

 

How's your SP10 Mk3 tricked out ?

 

Arm/cartridge ?

 

Custom plinth ?

 

... just curious as a Mk2 owner
