I've never had a really 'nice' turntable...just a cheap sony most of the time.

I'm leaning towards direct drive...are they more reliable? I had my platter and belt fall off my sony while moving and since putting it back on, the f'n pitch is faster and I can't stand it.

I really liked the Technics ones that this pirate station had I used to do a show at...

Is there a solid decently priced turntable, that's kind of like 'the standard' in turntables?


I don't need to scratch or anything and have no 78's...for what it's worth.

I have a Technic that's been with me for 5 years. Pretty solid machines. I'm not too sure about prices or anything these days. Sorry, brother.

NO - I don't have one......but if I was going to shell out money for a new one, I think this may be the one to go with. I believe IMPORTANT to be a reputable label and I don't think they would offer such a turntable is it wasn't a quality product.

Technics belt driven tables are hell of a lot cheaper than their direct drive tables, and they're really nice. I got mine for 20 bucks at a animal shelter's thrift store. SL-B205

It's really nice, has a fine speed adjustment, which is a MUST IMO. Even if you aren't beat-matching, some turn-tables are just a little off in speed, and being able to adjust that to get it right is really nice. The arm/weight combo is also very nice quality, I can get it to float ever so nicely over a record.


Someday I'd love to get a pair of Technics SL-1200s, but mine is good for now.
