Just wanted to say that I took the plunge and obtained a SL-1210 Mk 2 ... 2001 vintage I think. A bit scuffed-up but not used for DJ work far as I am told.
I'm trying my Shure V15III on it right now.
Unfortunately this also means that I'll have to part with my SL-1401. I have a couple things to fix up on it 1st (sticky buttons & interconnects).
