After a fair few weeks of indecision, i finally "won" a Rotel RP3000 turntable on fleabay, it looks to be in good condition with a tonearm resembling an sme3009.
i've no idea whether its going to be any good or not, and to be honest, it was only £100 so it was worth a punt.
its direct drive, and classic 1970's style which for some reason i really like. Hoping to collect it at some point tomorrow and give it a good going over and see how it looks.
anyone ever owned one of these or know anything about them?
