Hey, I am happy with the SL-1600 and V-15 mk111 for ten bucks, DD cogging or no cogging.
In addition to plenty of cheapy and mid-fi, I also have an SL-10, and a Garrard 401 that will get my attention someday.

Dave, the V-15 is VERY sensitive to electrical loading.
When it is right, they are not at all bad I reckon.

What are you waiting for?

One good oldie my friend!

Build a biological environment for it and will cover your ears with heavenly music.

The arm might be worth keeping too

I disagree. A properly modified and set up SP10 will handily outdo many high end belt drives.

The Kenwood you were referring to, was the Trio L-07D.

Yum.

AS you can see I have am no expert on Turntables.
Now I know somewhat more thanks to you all.

One thing I WANT to point out.
It has already been mentioned.
However good and expensive your TurnTable ever might be
it is the PICKUP that that will produce the sounds.

So a good pickup is of outmost importance for Vinyl Playing.
Also be sure to adjust the pickup correctly!
The force the needle has unto the groove and such things.

I am sure there is other Threads adressing this subject.
Phono RIAA amplifiers has been covered several times.

Last but an essential factor is that you have Vinyl Records.
And that you can enjoy them.
Without them, I am 100% sure nothing else matters.

Ok i'll bite -- what mods, because a stock one -- properly set-up -- sure doesn't.

That's not the one i was referring too, never saw that one before.
