    Amp for TT setup

    I'm putting together my vinyl setup at the moment, I picked up a SL-1200mk2 with a Shure M97xe cart. I'm going to be listening with my DT880 600ohms and I was wondering if I could get some recommendations on a amp. I was thinking of maybe finding a used Valhalla or Asgard. I don't have too much...

    Technics SL-1200 MK2 Direct Drive Turntable

    Used Technics 1200 in excellent condition, with minimal wear. Functions as well as it did the day I got them. Very sturdy and well built to stand the test of time. Used mainly at home, without ever having to transport them. Dust cover shows some sign of aging and has a sticker on the shell...

    Technic SL-1200MK2 Body replacement

    Ok I just accidentally bought an SL-1200, but the body or chassis or whatever you call it is mangled beyond hell. The seller said everything in it works but I seriously doubt it. Where can I get a replacement body?

    My old Technics 1200 Mk2' or replace?

    I'm getting serious about resurrecting my Technics SL-1200Mk2's which I bought used (crappy gold spray paint finish included) about 10 years ago but I'm not sure whether or not I should just sell these and move on to some decks in better condition. They've been sitting at my parents' house...
