    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.
