10/10 by turntableguru

An awesome turntable. Rock solid construction with a Jelco type arm. This turntable is superior to Pro-Ject Primary, Debut or Essential, having superior sonics and build quality. Very similar to Rega of old. Of the PL514, PL516 and PL518 the PL512 is a standout sonically. Unlike other Rega clones ( HDF plinth, motor and an arm) this one has a speed selector! Upgrade the OEM headshell to the Ortofon or any Alloy one and you will find an improvement in mid bass notes and a tighter more defined bass. 5 stars for price and value. Snap one up now while they are still on the cheap on Ebay.

Excellent turntable from late 1980,s.Simple, rugged and totally silent.Speed is rock steady and 100% accurate.Audio Technica AT95 e or Ortofon VM series or latest 2M cartridges will be ideal match for its SME type tone arm.Any day better than latest belt drive turntables with similar specs.

Great vintage turntable better than a lot more expensive new turntables.

Excellent. Surpasses the Rega Rp1 in many respects.
