Finally retired my Technics SL-Q200 that I bought used in 1987 due to motor issues. The new tt is a Pro-Ject X1. My budget wasn’t very large so I was looking at a U-Turn with a Ortofon Blue and possibly a Debut Carbon Espirit SB because I really didn’t want to give up the automatic speed change which is why the Rega P2 was out. I have enough 45rpm records where removing the plater seems unappealing. Anyway, Music Direct had an open box X1 plus a 10% off sale on open box inventory, so I got this for less than $700 taxed and shipped where it normally would have been around $975. Also, running it through a Musical Fidelity V90-LPS pre-amp, mid ‘90’s Yamaha RX amp, and Kef Q-100’s.
