Often, when you buy S/H you get more than you pay for.....but of course you should know what you are doing or get some advice from someone experienced.

I had an older LP12 they are great sounding turntables with endless upgrades available.
So why have I now got a Michell turntable you ask.

1st anyone walking across my floor had the needle bouncing along the vinyl which drove me nuts.
Now there is a cure for this by putting a shelf on the wall this eliminating vibrations.

My Michell sits with the rest of my Linn hifi with no bouncing needle every time someone walks across the floor. It is also a fantastic sounding deck and looks like a bit of engineering art into the bargain.

However if you don’t mind putting a shelf on your wall the Linn will not disappoint it is a classic after all

This is a double edged sword I think. When I had my LP12 I always had this nagging need to upgrade. However content I might have been with my deck, whenever a new part came out, I couldn't help but see it as a "fix", which made me dissatisfied with what I had, as if my deck now had an uncorrected fault. "Why couldn't they have got it right the first time?" - that kind of idea. Silly I know, but that's me!

Since I've had the Acutus I've been entirely content. Of course, that could be down the quality of the music that comes out of it... Smile

Still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.

In 1972, c'mon, make a Keel back then.....

I see it the other way around; I'm grateful to have a turntable that is upgradeable and still have a life, all the other TTs from that era and considerably newer are long gone and worth next to nothing on the S/H market because you will not get the spare parts for it when needed...and the LP12 is not sounding poorer if a new upgrade is launced. It is your choice if you want it even better Wink

Sure, and that is what I wrote above:

"Often, when you buy S/H you get more than you pay for.....but of course you should know what you are doing or get some advice from someone experienced."

But, Warren, you deleted the last part of my sentence to make your point...not too nice of you imo Cool

The last part of the sentence is fine, I thought the beginning great advice could be polished a little.

There can be some reading into things one can do. Why is the person selling? Why might they really be selling? What are they not saying? How well has it been looked after? What is the calibre of the person selling? Several times members of various forums have quickly spotted dubious ebay postings for example.

I have bought and sold a lot of S/H equipment during the years but I have never used ebay. In fact I have never bought anything without collecting it myself and checked the item before purchase.
And I recommend others to do the same.....if possible.
