I purchased my Technics SL1200MKii new from Kevin at KABUSA who is a huge proponent of this table.Given its robust build quality and superior sonics, it needs no introduction. It has been in the system at my camp since new and has seen minimal usage at best. In December I put a new $500.00 Audio Technica AT150MLX cartridge considered to be one of the finest MM cartridges available. It has played one side of a pristine album. Since these tables are no longer available new, this is one of the finest,low hour examples of this table you are likely to find. If you are reading this ad you are aware of the quality of this table. I purchased a super heavy duty oversized box with all the necessary packing materials from Audio Classics to ensure it gets to you in one piece. I have many years experience packing gear for safe travel. Read my feedback and buy with confidence. Paypal add 3.5% Below is an excerpt from a review on the AT 150MLX
"Everything points to the AT150MLX as the best
moving magnet design. It out tracks everything else I
could get my hands on"
