    My point is if 100 people want a SP10 and you can find maybe 10 what happens to the other 90 people ?

    The new model should cover these requirements ,
    I am more than happy with my 1200G and no I would not rather have a old SP10

    Also when was the last time you saw a nice looking SP10 up for sale ? . Most of them seem to suffer some kind of surface corrosion .

    The new Techie is a complete plug and play solution, with an SP10 you're looking at refinishing it (if it's particularly nasty), buying or building a plinth, getting a tonearm etc. In the end an SP10 would be much more expensive even if the motor unit itself can be found quite cheap.

    Suppose it's down to whether the "look" is as important to you as the performance.

    Personally, I ain't bothered about imperfect surfaces. It's here to do vinyl replay, not win vanity competitions!

    I have an SP10 mind you, mine is just slightly beat up and it doesn't bother me in the slightest. But some look like they came from a scrap heap, with clear epoxy finish completely rotten and aluminium covered in huge black lesions.

    Also I have to add that tinkering with it made me appreciate plug and play solutions like never before

    I think this deck looks hard to beat in every way, looks great aesthetically too IMO

    And that lovely technics on the fly vta...

    Stick a 2M Black on it or a good mc and it's gonna be one sweet vinyl spinner/player, forget messing and fettling - no need.

    I had one of these for exactly one night. It was a major disappointment. The start-stop button was nothing like the SL-1200GR version which I tried in the shop, it felt exactly like the on-off switch on a cheap DVD player. Very poor and plasticky feeling with a sharp click sound.

    The tonearm lever was surprisingly the poorest I’ve ever encountered. Lots of play in it and very little range of movement, it didn’t feel like it was connected to the arm somehow. Just very cheap feeling again, and not robust at all.

    Mine came fitted with a 2M Red cart (which I’ve owned before) so expected a decent enough sound. I was again surprised to find the SL-1500C lacking. It was just lacklustre and dull. Returned the whole thing the next morning. Don’t assume this is a high-end deck for middling money, or you’ll be disappointed - and I don’t usually find reason to bash kit. I bought a Pro-Ject X1 straight after this and it’s been very nice indeed, so much better than the Technics.
