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. Many available.
Back in stock and better than ever! The SL-5300 was produced in 1978 and it features the same tone-arm as the highly regarded but much more expensive 1200 series. It features either quartz lock or a pitch wheel for speed control (weird but very cool). The stylus light is actually very useful and VERY bright. I have an AT14s cartridge with a shibata stylus just waiting for this table!
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....
