Technics SL-1300

10/10 by ZoKtorR

I have a SL-1310 (anthracite version) which my parents bought originally, and it's absolutely fantastic. I've yet to find a reason why the 1300/1310 should not be as great as the SL-1200's. Built like a concrete bunker and with a design and engineering that's hard to surpass. Also, it just doesn't look like it's from the '70s, it looks so modern.

Just fixed the cue issue on my 1300 MK II with the Shapeway 3D printed gear. Now fully auto & lift functions. Excellent table now. like having an SL-1200 with auto feature. Can only give it a 9 because of the lift issue, though.

I still have the Technics 1300 I bought in 1975. It works and sounds great. Of course I've taken very good care of it over the years.

Build like a tank, give it a Ortofon 2M bronze or black and you are in heaven...

years and years of impeccable service and, above all, without maintenance.

I have one that I bought used. it's a great sounding deck. I like to use a Stanton 681 with shibata or a Shure M-75 HE.
I love that you can pull the lever and it loads automatically or use the cue arm for a manual drop. Auto return means you can doze on the couch and not have to get up. I really like this one. I'm sure there are better so 8 out of 10.

My SL-1300MK2 is in a very good condition, except that the arm will not lift when I use the lift. What's wrong? I think it's something with a leak in the device that sits between the lift and the lift ..? If.. it it then oil or air it uses? Is this something you can repair yourself?
I will be very happy if someone can help me.

The 1300 is the first run series without dubble floating chassis and suspenscion. The motor is a little bit weaker than than the models presented in the next series as eg SL 1710
But it's a very rare record player and worth being a collecteble item
