4 out of 5 "Technics SL-220"
Wonderful turntable - great functions - speed adjustment/strobe function is truly a help when optimising playback speed, the tonearm movement is gentle and soft, the cartridge is robust and the stylus (with care) lasts forever ;-) Anti-skate and weight adjustment is very responsive, and although the stopping and automatic starting of the tonearm sounds a bit clunky and mechanical, the operation of this function is reliable and good. One age-related problem was that the 45 speed started to go slow/fast, but this was after 15 years of generally excellent operation, so a belt check/change and a service would probably have treated that anyway ;-)

The hinges of the lid had snapped, the only negative part of this review, but all in all a great turntable.
