WTB: A few different turntables

Hi,

I thought I’d put out a feeler for a few turntable models I’m interested in, in case anyone here has one that they’d like to sell. Note that I’m not looking to buy all of them (I wish!), but I have some level of interest in each of them. If you have any others you think might be up my alley, feel free to send me a message if you’d like.


Pioneer PL-70

Micro Seiki DD-40/DD-7/DQ-7/DD-8 (and potentially other variants)

Micro Seiki BL-91 (BL-51, BL-71/77, etc)

Kenwood KP-9010 (1100, 990, 7010, KD-8030)

Technics SL-1200GR

Thanks!
Ben
 
Just a thought here you look at a Technics SL 1200 GR......it might be worth looking at one or two other Technics DDs . There are a few that are "off the running' but they will give a better "bang per buck" than an SL 1200 . They are not quite a 1200 but they are close.

Thanks, I appreciate the suggestion! It turns out that I have a number of Technics tables at the moment, I was just thinking of upgrading my 1200MK2 to the GR (and getting rid of a few others). You are right though, the GR definitely isn't the best bang for the buck.
 
Not sure if you saw this. But….

Thanks, I definitely did! It's about 3x more than I'm looking to spend, unfortunately. But I wish you the best of luck selling it 🙂

The best bang for the buck table is the one that stops you from thinking about and buying any more turntables. So in that respect the SL-1200G could be that table, if it's what scratches that itch.

the SL-1200GR would potentially create an itch for the SL-1200G :)
 
I have a DD-40 and a BL-91. Though I am not ready to trade my BL-91, I would consider moving my pretty DD-40, with genuine MA-505 arm n headshell. The genuine veneer on this heavyweight tt is nice, dust cover stays up and has served me well. I will shoot mackat a pm...

So true. I hit that with the Denon DP-80, not that there aren't other tables around here to play with. I'm just not looking for any new ones.

Nope, it was in the closet already before the Denon. Well, certainly before the Denon got put together and running. I think... maybe... :chin
I'm mistaking you having it still sitting in the floor in pieces while listening to your Denon months after a mule'd the Empire across the border.. ;)
