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. Many in Stock.
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.
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
Here's a turntable for all of the belt lovers out there. This semi-auto SL-B2 is in very good condition and sounds excellent (great tonearm on these). I Installed a new belt as well as cleaned the speed pot with detox. A common problem with these is, as they age (40 years plus) the spindle gear for the auto return / stop switch cracks, disabling the return mechanism. Not any more, some enterprising individual started manufacturing these aftermarket, I installed one and they work fantastic. A Technics stylus sits on the vintage Technics cartridge but I do change my cartridges out frequently so you can have your pick of what I have available. The table works perfectly and is plug and play ready.
$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.
Very interesting table. This is what happens when you let engineers run amok! The table has the 1200's tonearm with both pitch or quartz locked control. Plus one badass strobe light. My favorite!!
The quartz locked version of the SL-D2 with a more modern appearance.
