Fun article on analog. It talks about the return of the SL-1200 turntable, which should be available at the end of this year. I bought an SL-1200 Mark II back in the early 1990's. I used to see them in every club I went to, and figured if they could withstand that abuse, then it would last forever with the care I'd give it. And I was right. I have very few hours on mine, and it's always covered with a soft cloth to keep it like the day it was made. It's a pleasure to use, and a work of art in terms of build quality and design.
When the reissues come out, I plan on buying a second one. The new ones are supposed to have a few enhancements to the original, but will still use the durable materials that the original was known for. I don't expect it to be cheap, but I'd think it won't be priced excessively either. We'll see on that.
Love the SL-1200 tables!
