Indestructible and almost audiophile-quality sound

Mar 19, 2007
Review by  
Rated Show

Pros:Simple to use, not expensive (by audiophile standards) and very well designed

Cons:Some tables sound better, but cost thousands more

I owned one of these tables for a couple of years. I'm an audiophile and still like the sound of LPs better than any digital medium. The SL1200 Mk2 is an example of what a huge company can do at a very reasonable price point. Audiophiles will try to say that no direct drive turntable can sound good, but that's nonsense. I did end up going back into the fancy belt drive world, but for what you spend on this Technics table, you get a hell of a lot.
