Summary: Nothing. And I mean nothing compares to the quality of a Technics 1200 turntable. I used one professionally for 10 years. I still have 3 of them at home and they are among my most prized possessions. These things are built like tanks.
Summary: I am reviewing upgrades for the Technics SL-1200/mk II, particularly the KAB PS-1200GX (power conditioner), DC1200 (regulator) and SX1200 (strobe disabler), sold as a package for $260. In the summer of ’10 I acquired a Technics SL-1200/IIa from eBay.
