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. They are heavy, well built, and perform great. The direct drive means no belts to change, and you get the Technics direct drive reliability. I lubed the motor bearings, cleaned the speed pots and set all of the tonearm functions accordingly. This is a plug and play ready table which sounds great. I carry MANY of these tables in inventory.
This table is the same as the D2 model except without the semi-auto return function. The stop button on the D2 becomes the on/ off switch on the D1. Besides that the tables are identical. One available.
The full auto version of the D2. Comes with a repeat selector select switch which can be set for full repeat or from zero to six. One available.
Very cool (I love my hobby) full auto belt drive SL-235 turntable. If you want, grab a 33 rpm Technics stacker spindle and you can have one serious old school looking table. As usual with my inventory the table has been thoroughly gone through and all functions operate correctly. A Grado MT+ cartridge is responsible for the tunes, and it sounds great. The dust-cover on this one is exceptionally clean! Plug and play ready with all features gone through and operating at 100%.
1981 direct drive semi-auto model which actually has better rumble and wow & flutter numbers than the D2 series tables. This model has a more sleek appearance than it's predecessors and also has the cue mechanism on the exterior of the dustcover. Two available, really nice table!
This is the full auto version of the SL-D202. One available.
Full-auto direct drive table from circa 1988. The p-mount design allows for easy cartridge changes and the overall operation is very simple. The difference between a Technics S tonearm or straight tonearm is purely aesthetic. On the straight tonearm the headshell is offset at the very end of the arm which achieves the correct angle. One in stock
The direct drive full-auto predecessor to the D3 with two major features that most users consider an advantage. Having the cue mechanism on the outside of the dust-cover and having separate pitch controls for both 33 and 45 rpm. Nice heavy unit which has the same reliability of the D3
$240 / $320
These tables are the big boys of the D series. Comes with or without the stacker spindle (price difference). If you don't use the stacker option you basically have a D3 with a taller dust cover. I currently have two of these tables available.
These tables are my favorites in the p-mount series and are relatively rare compared to the much more mass produced belt drives of the early 80's. The QX300 may look like the Q300 but that is where the similarities end. The vast majority of turntables manufactured have the base and plinth made out either polymers, press-board or wood. The QX300 is all aluminum. The table also has a separate suspension for the tonearm, pitch controls (rare in a quartz lock), higher mass platter, better tonearm/bearings and oem copper stranded rca cables.
1977-1978 full-auto direct drive beauty. Nice heavy machine with great aesthetics and performance. Thoroughly gone through, plug and play ready. Grab yourself a stacker spindle for a serious old school look! Sold Out
Time warp back into 1978 for this unit. This is by far one of my favorite models in the Technics series of tables. Quartz lock or pitch wheel, how about your choice. Same tonearm as the 1200 series of tables and just an overall great sounding and great looking table.
