“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
The SL-7 is a great turntable for a small(er) price.
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
I received this as a gift from my wife along with some old records.
My only previous experience with turntables was when i was 6 listing to some kid tales on my parents old turntable .
But Im so in love of the sound of lps that I worry I found another expensive hobby (photography and headphones being other two)
If you are new to LPs and turntables as I am I really...” --Juantxo
“The PPA V600 was designed by Fried Reim, CEO of the German Company Lake People/Violectric. Violectric and Lake People have a US/Canada distributor/reseller in New Jersey http://violectric-usa.com operated by Arthur Power. Both Arthur and Fried are available for technical inquiries, and have answered many of my questions.
The V600 is a relatively new product and has just become...” --catcherfly
“I bought my RP3 for my headphone set up to enter in the world of vinyl and what a buy! Overall the rega is a very sensitive Turntable however, it awes me everytime I plug it in a play.
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
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...
I bought this table about two years ago and I pretty much have nothing but good things to say about it. It sounds *excellent*. The unique proprietary twin-pipe tonearm provides for excellent channel separation which results in a huge, wide soundstage. The suspension of the table provides excellent isolation from room vibrations, I can pound on the surface the table sits on...” --philspins
“Rega have been producing turntables for a long time and this one is a credit to the brand name. I consider myself to own a good dac which can be passed through a reasonably good amp and to some good speakers. I listen to most of my music this way. I also, however, have a wide taste in music and some record labels still release all their music on vinyl only and i have one of these beauties for...” --Marcus_C
I have had my Scoutmaster for about 6 months. I've been enjoying it mightily.
The Scoutmaster's most noticeable sonic trait is that it provides an incredibly quiet, deep-black background. With my Benz LP-S, the sound is effortless, organic, and startlingly full-range. Bass is amazingly solid and deep. Midrange and treble are pure analog - which is to say, astoundingly...” --Skylab
