    Talking Just ordered the 1200G!

    Thought I'd start a new thread.

    Just ordered the 1200G, I'm just going to run it with an At95 once I get it for a while.

    Richer Sounds have it for 2999 but with a 500 discount.

    https://www.richersounds.com/technics-sl1200g.html

    It's in short supply absolutely everywhere so looking at a few weeks!

    I want to keep it stock as buying it, it's as much about the looks as well for me.

    I've also done some research and it appears that they retained the magnesium tonearm for the 1200G!!!!!!!!!! See here http://www.technics.com/us/products/...00g.html#specs

    Thanks!

    I wonder how long my Linn will last.

    I may end up putting my Delos on the Technics! Or buy an At33PTG which for some reason I've always fancied.

    As it's got a detachable headshell, what cartridge is best for 45's, I read they play better with a heavier tracking weight?

    Also I'll need a good all round universal 78 cartridge as well.

    The AT 33ptg is a cracking cart. Got one here on loan. Fantastic for the money. Seriously good.

    It'll be interesting to hear what you think when it arrives!
