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!
These tables are the big boys of the 3000 series. Comes with or without the stacker spindle (price difference). If you don't use the stacker option you basically have a 3300 with a taller dust cover. One gorgeous one in stock.
The quartz locked version of the SL-D2 with an upgraded tonearm, aluminum plinth and electronic stop button. Out of stock.
My inventory changes weekly.
Fully automatic direct drive from 1974. Completely serviced and ready to go. I did install some larger feet on this model to help with footfall skipping. Very vintage and very cool looking. Cost over $350 back in the day. Sold Out
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 QX300 is my favorite in the p-mount series and is relatively rare compared to the more mass produced Q300 of the early 80's. The QX300 may look like the Q300 but that is where the similarities end. The majority of turntables manufactured have the base and plinth made out of either polymers, press-board or wood. The QX300 is all aluminum. The table also has a separate suspension for the tonearm, pitch controls higher mass platter, better tonearm/bearings and oem copper stranded rca cables.
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.
Here's a pretty rare bird. You have the innards, plinth and platter of the venerable D5 with the convenience of the p-mount tonearm. Stacker ready!
Circa 1978 turntable which features the same quality tone-arm as the highly regarded but much more expensive 1200 series. This table offers both quartz lock or a pitch wheel for speed control (weird but very cool). The stylus light is actually very useful and VERY bright. The table looks and operates at 100%. An AT cartridge with an elliptical stylus currently sits on the table but as usual I'll give you a choice of the cartridges I have available. Plug and play ready! One in stock.
