Technics SL-1200MK5 Unique mods, excellent condition [Expired]


no longer for sale

This is a unique and great sounding Technics 1200MK5. It is in excellent condition with the following modifications I had installed:

1. Wood-in Platter by RoylCraft deadens the ringing of the aluminum platter and adds weight and stability.

2. RCA cable connections with internal grounding. Gold plated connectors in a stainless steel housing attached to a round block of wood that provides isolation from the table.

3. Remote control connector for start/stop with remote device, such as Technics SH-10R (not included).

4. LED lights – strobe is deep orange, 33 button is gold, 45 button is blue, pop up target light is blue, pitch slider is gold.

5. Tonearm rewired with cardas wire and cotton inside the arm tube.

6. Hinge receptors attached to the table and hinges attached to dustcover.

7. Inside base of table injected with polyfoam to further deaden the base and reduce vibration.

8. KAB fluid damper with silicon fluid for better tracking and a smoother sound.

With the wood-in platter, foam injection, gold plated RCA connectors, re-wired tonearm, and fluid damper, this 1200MK5 turntable produces quieter backgrounds, tighter and more solid bass, and greater detail for an overall more musical and natural sound than a stock 1200.

The LED lights are more aesthetically pleasing and should last the life of the table. Also includes a new, never-used Technics headshell.

This 1200MK5 has been gently used in a smoke-free home, no DJ-ing. While I was having it modified I ended up buying another turntable so I only used it for about 20 hours or so at most.

Total package includes: Technics 1200MK5, original box and styrofoam, user manual and warranty cards, balance weight, small counterweight, original rubber bumpers for the hinge slots, 45 rpm adapter, rubber mat, overhang gauge, new headshell, fluid damper, original power cord, dustcover w/hinges and screws. DOES NOT INCLUDE cartridge or RCA cables. Cartridge shown in one of the pics is just to show the table in action, it is NOT included.

Note: I have a used Denon DL-160 cartridge with Technics headshell in very good condition I will include free for the Buy It Now price, it sounds excellent on the 1200.

Packed in original box and materials and will be double boxed at my expense for safe shipping. Buyer pays standard shipping either FedEx or UPS. I will pay for the double boxing and insurance. Paypal please add 3%. Feel free to send questions and reasonable offers.
