Hello everyone, I have a question. I have a opportunity to get a JVC QL-7 or a JVC QL-F4. Which one is the better turntable of the two? Thanks!

I've got 20, ranging from my P3, and Luxman to several radiograms (some valve) , a couple of 70's portables, an Onkyo, Pye system and a Hi-fi / TV cabinet from the 60's. I just don't seem to have a no button haha

Wow, seeing lists of 6+ turntables is aspirational. I currently own zero! I'm a lurker with a serious research problem. :D
I saw your other thread about vintage/thrift store or new. Thrift store finds are not as easy as they used to be. Nowadays, there are guys who specialize in hitting estate sales where any audio gear is included. They have contacts with auction houses and such, and get the good stuff before it is even available elsewhere, and then they refurb and sell on Craigslist, etc.

Are there any used record stores near you? They often have vintage TTs come through.

Kijiji is good as well. I've actually purchased a few things off Canadian Kijiji and had it shipped down here to the states. The key is looking for a seller who specializes in audio gear, and/or ask the seller if they have experience packaging and shipping turntables. If it looks to be a random thrift store shopper and reseller, or someone selling their dad's old TT, etc., be very careful. You'll want to ask very specific questions about packing (i.e., removing the platter, tonearm counterweight and headshell, securing the tonearm, separately packing the dustcover, etc.).

If you ever get your hands (and ears) on both a good vintage TT and a new modern TT in the same price range, you can judge for yourself what appeals to you most, and what you consider 'worth it'.

But you gotta start somewhere!

Hey, wm -

What's happening with the SL2000? Did it suddenly simply stop or ssslllloooowwwwwllllllyyyyy die?

I'd suggest reposting in the Technics section below (nearly at the bottom) with more complete description of what is (or is not) happening. You'll likely get some helpful advice.

Peace,

MH
