ah, no. I meant to say that I’d had a pair of 1210mk2’s from new. 
I think new ones are Mk5’s?

Or the higher spec 1200GR or 1200G
Is the pursuit High Fidelity a sign of mental illness??
I think so....

Can you still get the 1210 mk2 new?, I have always liked Technics TTs
I think the answer is going to be no

Jon, Technics now manufacture the MK7 version of this turntable. http://www.technics.com/uk/products/dj-series/direct-drive-turntable-system-sl-1210mk7.html I have a MK2 that I'm happy with which you can buy from ebay etc for about £400 second hand. There's even an SL1500C version without a pitch fader.

The MK2 was discontinued a long time ago.

Currently there is the Mk7, the GR, and the G. 

Also the 1500C which isn't a 1200 but a close cousin.

I have the 1200mk7. Zero regrets with my purchase. 
Reflex M + PSU-1 used with AT VM95ML, Stanton 680mkII + Ogura, and Shure M35X cartridges.

As I want to play 78s I am going to have to invalidate my warranty almost immediately to ship the motor board to  KAB in the States for modification, unless anyone knows of someone in the UK that can do this.

I have been using, or rather not using, a secondhand Goldring 101 deck for more years than I care to think of so I am really looking forward to getting the Technics ' table.

And of course, when the 78 mod is done I shall be ready to purchase a Revelation from Graham so that I can play the 78s at their proper EQ not to mention SQ!.

While I'm waiting I can use the time to clean the box of 78s my mother-in-law has promised me this weekend!


Well, that was a long time ago!
What actually happened was that I (eventually!) swapped the bearing for a Mike New bearing, replaced the power supply with an external Timestep ps; replaced the arm with a SME 309, which as I type is fitted with a new Nagaoka MP500 cartridge. Playing Graceland and it sounds wonderful (about 15hours on the cart).
Never did get it modified to play 78s but I purchased a deck from Graham, an AT PL120 which will play the 78s.

The loss of one channel recently was,finally, tracked down to a broken cartridge wire. Many thanks to JC for all his help and patience helping me to identify the fault.

All of my amps and cables are GSP. Speakers are Mission 753 Freedoms. I am enjoying listening to my vinyl collection more than I ever have before but have asked JC to let me audition the Accession M. Watch this space!
