+1 to that!
The Technics SL-1500 is a nice table, but the Pioneer PL-117D is a thing of beauty. I own one in near mint condition and it is simply gorgeous - to look at and listen to.
I also own a Technics SL-1200 and have variously owned: SL-1300, SL-1500, SL-1600, SL-1700 and SL-1900. All great tables, but not the eye candy of the 117D.
