I have owned a PX 100 since 1982, (original owner). The thing has never been serviced, other than playing with different cartridges, and it is still absolutely perfect. I am trying to get information on whether it has Micro Seiki pedigree or not and no one on the forum seems to know. Bottom line, 272 is a great table, if you can find a PX 100, I reccomend it, 30 years old and my Clearaudio Emotion barely surpasses it!!
