I paid 3000NOK (~$600). I don't know how that translates into the US economy, but it's around a week's work at minimum wages here in Norway. It is from around the late 80's, btw.

Accuphase Pro-5 amp, anyone here know anything about it?

I'm getting one of these in a couple of days, is anyone here familiar with it?
The Accuphase pro line seems too have very little distribution outside Japan, so I can't find much info in...

I can't believe you guys are even mentioning the Bluedog mixer!
It was my first mixer, and it's the flimsiest, poorest built, worst sounding piece of sh*t I've ever owned. Just my personal opinion.

Improved coupling, and resonance damping on the cheap :)

Why I'd rather upgrade the headshells first:

LOL! The feet are one of the places Technics saw it fit to cut costs.
The non-pro versions (SL-18/17/1600Mk2) that came out at the same time had a double-sprung plinth, btw.
I wonder why...

Better headshells would probably make a much bigger difference than headshell wire !

FYI: Apparently, Isonoe replaces the elastics for free if they crack like mine did.
I had completly forgotten about it, as I've been too busy with other stuff.

I'm using Isonoes on my listening deck(s), and they work great. And the sexy look is a nice bonus ;)

However, all the rubber bands on one of my sets (I've got two slighly different sets of Isonoes)...

Just out of curiosity, have you ever listened to the same cartridge you use in the Rega, on a stock Technics (in the same system, of course)?

You should check out older Accuphase gear, too. If you're on a really tight budget, H/K 730 and A-402 can be had for next to nothing. Amazingly good poweramp sections with dual power supplies....

Regarding bearings: Technics SL-1200Mk2 arm bearings have a tolerance of ± 0.5 microns. Bearing friction is 0.007gr. Do you really think a Rega RB250 or RB300 (I own/owned both, btw) has better...

Technics SL-120Mk2, anyone familiar with this model?

I just got a "new" turntable, an armless version of the SL-1200Mk2.
I know they made an armless version of the SL-1200 (SL-120, Mk1), but I've never heard about an SL-120Mk2. The only reference I've...
