I could never understand the amount of prejudice towards this turntable. I bought mine back in 1983 after a side by side with the LP12, to me it was a no brainer. So many aspects of the 101 have been copied by other manufactures since. Even the LP12 with the Keel fitted sounds more like the 101 than the LP12 of old, strange that don't you think? I've heard many turntables since but I've never regretted buying or keeping the Logic!
