    Default Wanted. Budget Record Deck

    pfm Member
    I had to sell all my kit over the past year but luckily managed to keep hold of my Dynaudio Contours and an AT 150 EA cart.
    I’ve just bought a Nad C372 amp and am now looking for a budget deck for around the £150 mark.
    Currently using the Numark USB deck I bought about 10 years ago to digitize some LPs (I managed one) and it sounds as you’d expect.
    Thanks in advance based in Brighton

    Not so budget in performance, why not look for a Lenco Lenco 75?

    Great deck, there are a few on eBay, easy to work on.

    There are at least two on eBay with low bids at moment that have been serviced and v blocks replaced.

    Your budget could get you great deck.

    I'll be selling my minty Linn Basik soon. This is a real unmolested example with the improved Akito arm and upgraded AT120eb Cartridge also recently been serviced by Criterion Audio in Cambridge. All boxed and sounding wonderful.....Will be coming in over your budget though sorry.

    Will also be selling my Elipson Alpha 100 in Red which will come in under your budget. Has no lid as got damaged but a whole lot of TT for the cash including carbon arm and Ortofon 20 cartridge.

    I have a Dual CS505 with an Ortofon cartridge. New pitch belt fitted last year, hardly used since.

    The Perspex cover is quite scruffy. £40.

    I’m not keen to post it so collection from South Northants. NN13.

    I ended up agreeing to buy a modded Technics 1200 with an Audio Origami RB300 arm from an AoS member. It was quite a bit more than I planned to pay but I've always wanted to try one having had an original mk2 many years ago and the price was one I couldn't pass up. Hopefully arriving on Sunday.
    I also managed to get a Musical Fidelity V LPS phono stage for £40 which I thought was reasonable.

    Good shout Nat, sounds like it'll be a nice thing. No doubt worth paying a bit more - like the saying goes: Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten. Or maybe it's just me that says that
