Hi folks,

Looking to get a turntable again and have come across someone selling a TECHNIC SL-1210 MK2 TURNTABLE. How would it compare to the Rega Rp1 i had before?

Cheers,Mick

RE: TECHNIC SL-1210 MK2 TURNTABLE

Although still considered a good turntable I would be very wary of these unless you know exact provenance.

Many are ex-DJ's turntables and can be 'a little tired'.

They are no longer manufactured but spare parts should still be available.

Can be used as a basis for modification and a few good companies do exactly that by just retaining the platter and motor.

But having said that a good one, serviced and properly set-up, would easily outperform your RP1.

How did you decide in the end ? I am in the similar  situation , but I had  1210 mk2 in the past and now thinking about Rega rp1+PP

or maybe I'll save up some more money for RP3 ,? but if 1210 mk2 is better than   puzzled
