  1. thanks for that Adam.

    I will keep me eyes peeled on thingy bay, Would it be worth ripping the arm off and fitting an RB250 i have kicking around?
    Strange is it may sound it would feel odd buying a different mag. i don't agree with the oher post with regard to KK. I met him some years back and he was a gentleman and good fun too. thanks for the advice.

    Hi,
    Sorry to have upset you -you'll just have to start buying HFN now!

    As to a DD for 12" singles, it depends on your budget, but a few suggestions would be the following:

    - Technics SL1300/1400/1500/1600/1700/1800 series. All very similar but are various combinations of manual, semi-auto and fully auto. the Mk2 versions are better but can have cueing issues - this can be fixed but is a fiddly job apparently!

    - Pioneer PL600/630

    - Sony PS4750/6750

    Adam.
