The SL1200 weighs more than many commercial SS amps.

SL1200 + RB250 is the route I would take, given a choice. A basic rewire for the arm would be the first upgrade. Lots of people still picking up used 1200's for $250, and that's in good shape. Or, pick one up with a pooched arm for even less!

Default Jeff, you Linnie!

Coming from a Linnie, I'm not sure I'd necessarily believe him

As I stated, There are good types of all drives. If the worst that can be said is that the SL12XX tables are durable, then not the end of the world. There are many who swear by them, just not me (but I can't say Ive ever owned one though, but have had plenty of other DD tables).
