The legendary direct drive Technics SL1200 M3D turntable is in very good to excellent shape! Originally one of two units used for DJ mixing, this direct drive wonder became my go to analog source in my home audio system for several years. The original RCA cables were replaced with audiophile grade Straight Wire Chorus cabling and the conical cartridge with the excellent $230 Ortofon 2M Blue Moving Magnet phono cartridge that got some limited use and is included with this deck.
On the 2M Blue Modern Moving Magnet Design:
- Upgrade from the 2M Red
- 2M series was developed in conjunction with Danish designer Møller Jensen Design – the same designer who designed the award winning MC Jubilee and very successful Kontrapunkt series
- Stylus type Nude Elliptical
