I carry many of these tables in stock (so this is not a repost) and they are my number one seller. You will have your pick of what I have available and if you want a different dustcover it shouldn't be a problem.
When my customers ask me what table I recommend I always answer either the SL-D2 or the SL-3200. They are incredibly reliable, hold speed great and are built like tanks. Of course they also sound fantastic. This model was the first nice table I ever owned and I consider them to be the workhorse of the late 70's, early 80's Technics tables. The direct drive means no belts to change, and of course you get the Technics direct drive reliability. I lubed the motor bearings, cleaned the speed pots and set all of the tonearm functions accordingly. An Empire cartridge with a new elliptical stylus has been properly installed according to Technics Spec. I do move my cartridges around quite frequently so I will show you what I have available.
All of my tables have been thoroughly gone through and serviced. They require little if any maintenance and if you need any help or have questions I'll be happy to help you and show you exactly how to properly set up a table.
I've been restoring Technics Tables for two years now and have sold over 250 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. I kept seeing people purchasing these toy tables with built in speakers that reminded me of the Fisher Price table I had when I was eight. New records (yeah, I'm old) 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.
Thanks, and visit our local record stores!!
