Once again, apolgies fot the Hifi related post…
I’m searching for a new Turntable, in the region of £700.
Has anyone any experience with the following:
Denon DP3000 - I have been offered one (very good price), that has a speed issue. Looking online, these are either an easy fix (clean the speed pots, make sure the magnetic tape head is aligned) or its Circuit board issue and lots of components need replacing. Also I gather if the magnetic tape on the platter is damaged, its unobtanium?
Technics SL-150 - Seem to go for very cheap with an SME 3009II Imp as standard, I have found a SME 3009II (non-Imp) which I quite fancy as a better match for the AT33/PTGII. I did enjoy the Direct Drive nature of the Micro Seiki MR-711 it was just the sheer size of it, the SL-150 is a bit smaller.
There is a Technics SL1200GR for sale but I can’t get excited about it.
Main things are nothing massive, no seperate PSUs and no bouncy decks.
