Not Quite.

I have a Goldring Lenco complete with SHURE cartridge if anyone is interested.

Now THATS a turntable

The DADDY of DJ turntables (must be the mk II but the site doesn't state) but only 3 left... :?
If anyone buys that item it has to be in quantities of 2 surely.

EDIT: still voted hot btw - I sold a pair that were 10 years old for £450.

good deal! wish i had the money... still have belt drives

I'm sorry but that is quite wrong, not only was the SL1210 in service with over 5,000 Broadcast Authorities, but its platter was used on most Disc cutting lathes too, because a belt couldn't hold the speed accurately. It is and was a masterpiece and it's as good as the best ever made.

The fact that that the SL1210 was the most reliable and successful turntable of all time and judged by experts as the best should not be forgotten because it proved indestructible in the hands of DJs.

The deck was never designed primarily for DJs only originally - it subsequently was adopted by that user group due to the deck's many strengths - the high quality motor, timing and build not least.

Doesn't make my statement wrong though does it.
People who buy that deck (or the better looking SL1200) nowadays will require 2 because as underlined by rizla01 there are far more highly regarded turntables for the audiophile.

Lol.

Shut up.

And regarding it being the DADDY of DJ turntables... well it is!

It's also a rather functional platter if you want to give your goldfish dizziness issues, or a seasonal spinning base for your 3ft christmas tree - If you want it to be.

Just because a rotund cross-dressing fifty year old could wear a wonderbra wouldn't mean that it wasn't the cleavage-enhancing bra of choice for young ladies on it's release would it.

shurley if your after a top audiophile deck Linn Sondek LP12 would be better also lot more expensive this realy is a DJ deck but still one of the best in its class but would not class it as audiophile deck as there are a lot of better sounding decks if you have the money.But you would not use Linn Sondec LP12 as DJ deck lol voted hot as great price for this deck

Only 3 Items Left!

I'd have a fast car if I took a Mini Cooper S body, but replaced the engine with that of a Zonda and everything else from a Ferrari F50GT :w00t:
Doesn't make my original Mini a world-beater

I've got a dansette record player that can play up to 10 records, now thats the
mother of all turntables, the front lights up too! lol

These will become cheaper year on year. Used prices have been falling for the last four years. Pioneer sent these to the knackers a few years ago.

Voted hot anyway as a great price for a new deck.
