Technics SL M3 Opinions. Is It The Second Best Technics Made?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Reaching out to the SNA community for anyone with experience with a Technics SL M3 linear turntable. I have a chance to buy one which is fully serviced, but it's a bit of a drive in a direction I never travel, so I'm seeking comment on what to expect both from a sound reproduction and technical perspective. I realise that parts for one of these will be a headache should something go a miss, but what is the durability and reliability like? Sound wise, from what I can find on the net, it is an outstanding table, with some saying that it is only bettered by the SP MK3 of all the Technics offerings. 


Opinions? Thanks in advance.

After owning a few SL7s, I have dreamed of owning one of these.  


I think one drawback to consider is cartridge choice,  since you are constrained to p mount cartridges. The best p mount cartridges made are all now out of production and very sought after. If you do find one of these cartridges,  such as the Technics epc-100cmk4, then this TT is one of the best platforms to run it in.

Thanks for the info guys. It's good to see that professional servicing is available here in Australia, and that many parts are shared with common models.
