Back in stock and better than ever! The SL-5300 was produced in 1978 and it features the same tone-arm as the highly regarded but much more expensive 1200 series. It features either quartz lock or a pitch wheel for speed control (weird but very cool). The stylus light is actually very useful and VERY bright. I have an AT14s cartridge with a shibata stylus just waiting for this table!
This is a plug and play ready table which has been completely gone through and bench tested. All of the vital bushings and components have received fresh lube and the table operates at 100%. YOU WILL BE VERY HAPPY WITH THIS TABLE!!
I've been restoring Technics Tables for just about four years now and have sold around 350 tables in that time. The reason I started this hobby was because I wanted people to realize how truly amazing vinyl can sound on a quality system. New records aren't cheap, please don't spend more on a new album than you do on a turntable, you'll just end up regretting the purchase. I do work out of my house, but obviously this keeps my overhead incredibly low. I stand behind what I sell and would listen to any of my albums on the tables I have for sale. When you purchase a table from me I will answer any of your questions and explain the table to you in detail. I would estimate that customers are at my house anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes on average. I want you to feel comfortable with your purchase.
