Purchase a Technics SL-1210 Mk II, an ORIGIN-LIVE REGA adapter, a REGA RB-250 and a INCOGNITO REWIRE KIT. The SL-12XX design has not changed significantly in three decades — I have two of each model ( and an SME 20/2). The Technics with the right cartridge (**fyi** I would not suggest the AT-440ML – too bright – go for it’s big brother, the AT-150MLX) is stellar. A really excellent combo is the Dynavector DV-20XH , and a Passdiy PEARL phono stage with this table. Get a KAB Damper and rewire it and be amazed at the improvements you get. When rewiring the arm also fill it with cotton and shrinkwrap the outside of the tube.
