Anyway, before this becomes another belt drive vs. direct drive debate (deadhorse.gif), I was just curious regarding an objective P3/SL1200 comparison. Back to the pics!

Well, I certainly do not want another belt vs direct vs minituarized Martians drive vs etc debate. The sound of 4 recent 1200/1210s was so over the map

that would hardly be attributable to the same design. Compared to a normally functioning Rega, you would get 4 totally different impressions. After "refurbishing", they all performed as they should. 

 

1200/1210 was the cheapest DD one could take seriously. At the other extreme is Rockport Sirius - wish I could at least spend a longish listening session with it once. I do not think all of its overengineering is absolutely necessary for a decent DD deck, but some are. DD can not be built in a garage ( there are exceptions to this rule ) as easily as belt drive - but I guess something between 1200 and Sirius should be good enough and not cost an arm and a leg.

 

One of my next posts will be pic - something so old I could not find a pic online, only found its sucessors.

Greyson, that is magnificent and simple little system. If I may, are you using loudspeakers? If so, which ones?

 

I don't have a vinyl setup, but I've been itching for one for awhile now.

Gonna get myself a few of those little LP bins pretty soon. Sick of trying to find what I want in an Expedit unit.

To an extent I agree, but I still love the 'record store' flipping bins like that. They can also be a 'new stuff' bin in my house.

Haha cheers bud, 

I havent spun for around 3 & 1/2 years as Im living at my parents whilst in between homes, So the decks & other gear not in the photo is all in storage 

currently. 

However when we do move, I plan to size down, So I'll be selling my Denon CDJ's, Power amps, the Vestax mixer in the pic ( Pcv 175 ) & some of my DJ cans.

 

Then I'll be running two 1210's ( need to get a second 1210m3d - its the black one in the pic ), my Vestax PMC 25 with rotary upgrade ( replaces the sliders )

in a custom built unit. I'll be getting a set of Yamaha HS80M studio monitors & my ibook running Torq ( DVS )

And I'll probably get a second set of HD25's specifically for my DJ setup.

 

The two 1200mk2's will be refurbished inside and out with a new lick of paint, Then I'll sell them on too.

 

all the money I get from my DJ gear sales will fund my audiophile side of things as I still don't have half the gear I want/need & being a carer, Wonga is tight lol!

This is my baby, an SL-1500 that spent 80% of it's life in the box until I bought it for $275. Yes that is kind of much for this model but the condition is what made it that price

You lucky dog.

post #1244 of 3481

Yeah for the price I couldn't have gotten anything better

 

Hey what kind of mods could I do to it? Or should I not tamper? 

 

 

This would be awesome to have, since good analog cables DO make a difference. Do the technics table's tonearms use DIN connectors?

I dont know if its the same or less complicated for the SL1500, 

However to give you an idea of what it involves on an SL1210/1200 -
