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. Many available.
The stacker spindle enabled big brother of the SL-D3. The single play spindle is also included.
My hobby has become more than I ever thought it would. For true up to date inventory and photos please check out my Craigslist page by either using the supplied link or by searching Technics Turntables Greenville SC. I'll be the seller in Easley, you can't miss me.
I do love my hobby! I meet all kinds of interesting people, plus I get to have a whole lot of fun in restoring cool tables. I decided to do a little metal flake work on this full auto direct drive SL-3300 and I think it came out fantastic. It looks just flashy enough but retains it's Technics class. I also installed a new dustcover with my heavy duty aluminum tabs. As usual the table has been completely gone through and the full auto functions work perfectly. An ADC cartridge is currently installed but I change my carts often so you can have a pick of what you would like. Nice heavy well built table as are all the direct drive units from Technics in the late 70's early 80's. Two in stock, one with the standard Technics finish.
The 3000 series tables were produced in 1978 and were the model before the equally bulletproof D series tables. One feature a lot of my customers enjoy on these tables is the cue mechanism being on the outside of the dustcover. Excellent looking and designed tables.
Very well maintained circa 1975 direct drive turntable. I cleaned both speed pots and the selector switch with CDC QD contact cleaner, replaced the power fuse, lubed the main bearings and upgraded the cables. The plinth is in crazy great shape. Plug and play ready. Mmmmm, I may keep this one....
Here is a near perfect (and I don't use that term loosely) Technics SL-Q2 semi- auto direct drive quartz locked turntable which I decides to place a new dustcover on. This may look like a dressed up SL-3200, which is a great table in itself, but there are many differences. Obviously the quartz lock assures rock solid speed with no pitch wheels to deal with. You also have a superb aluminum plinth and an upgraded tonearm (think SL-1700 MKII). The stop button solenoid has been thoroughly lubed!
Near perfect Technics SL-1800 circa 1977 direct drive turntable. I cleaned both speed pots and the selector switch with CDC QD contact cleaner and lubed the main bearings. This table holds speed great and the plinth is in excellent condition. I buffed the dustcover and it's in great shape with some fine scratches present. This is a plug and play ready table which has been completely gone through and bench tested.
One of my favorites back in stock!! Technics let the engineers run amok back in the day. The result was a full auto quartz locked or pitch wheel table that shares many features (including the tonearm) of the SL-1200. I removed every bushing on this table and installed new lubricants. The dustcover is just about as perfect as you could get for a 40 plus year old unit. Love the truly functional tylus light.
This model came out in the early 80's and replaced the SL-D2 series. It's a little more modern looking and has the cue mechanism on the outside of the dustcover which many people prefer. This is a plug and play ready table! By the way great rumble numbers and wow and flutter numbers on this table. 78 for rumble (higher the better) and .025 for wow and flutter. Thoroughly gone through and operating at 100%.
The looks of the SL-1950 is what I think of when I imagine mid 70's Technics tables. They are classy and gorgeous at the same time. Of course the table has been gone through completely and is plug and play ready. Get yourself a stacker spindle and have some fun.
This is the belt driven model of the SL-3350. Very well maintained model which operates at 100%.
