Yamaha YP-D8

Late seventies Hi-End Yamaha turntable.

A review on: Yamaha YP-D8
Yngve

Pros: Weight, Build quality, Looks, Sound.

Cons: Can not think of any.

I have had this turntable for a year now, and i am very happy with it.  I use a Denon 103R MC picup, and it works very well with the Yamaha YP-D8 arm. This is a heavy turntable, with its 15 kg weight. The platter is 2,7 kg, and built in aluminium. The wood on the body of the turntable, looks very nice, and you can see that this was a Hi End player in the late seventies. The arm is of...

Linn Sondek LP12

“I bought my LP12 around 1994. Over the next six year I did every available upgrade to it. And then for the next thirteen years I just enjoyed it. Last year I took it in for a new cartridge and tune up. They brought it completely up to date and made it better than ever.  The LP12 is a very well balanced design. Other 'tables might exceed it in rhythm and timing, extension, or...” --Sam Edwards

Technics SL-7 Turntable

Technics SL-7 Turntable

“ The SL-7 is a great turntable for a small(er) price.   BUILD QUALITY The body is cast aluminium so it's quite a heavy turntable at 7.8 KG, but this also makes it very stable, durable and silent. The direct drive motor also helps in making this one of the quietest turntables I've heard so far.   the tonearm moves straight over the record which is better for the sound...” --CH23

VPI Prime

VPI Prime

“I switched to the VPI Prime after a few months with a Pro-Ject Carbon Debut table - a great entry level table that provides a glimpse of great vinyl but left me wanting much more. The step from the Pro-Ject to the VPI is a massive step. The Pro-Ject retails for about $700 with needed upgrades; the VPI Prime retails for $3800 plus cartridge - I went for the $750 Ortofon 2M Black. Look for deals,...” --davehg

Technics SL-1200MK4 Direct Drive Turntable System

Technics SL-1200MK4 Direct Drive Turntable System

“ The durability of the legendary "twelve hundred" turntable doesn't need further introduction: original ones of the 70's still work to this day, and since it has been so popular and so many have been sold, availability of spare parts, should any servicing ever be necessary, is guaranteed.   Like all SL-1200's from the MK2 on, the die-cast heavy aluminium housing achieves great...” --the wizard of oz

Thorens TD124

Thorens TD124

The Thorens TD 124 was introduced in 1957, some three years after the debut of that other flagship turntable, the Garrard 301. Like the Garrard, the TD 124 was a motor unit: a component rather than integrated turntable, whereby the user had to supply his or her own plinth, not to mention tonearm and cartridge. The two turntables are outwardly similar, although the Thorens, with its 10-lb...
