    I don't think that was a serious asking price.....

    At Axpona, SOTA showed their Moonbearm turntable that retails for a touch over $1000 replete with arm and cartridge.
    SOTA is an American turntable brand founded circa 1980 by Dave Fletcher and Robert Becker in Berkeley California.The talented Spiral Groove turntable designer Allen Perkins worked for the company in the late 1980s. In the early 1990s, when it appeared that compact discs were going to kill off vinyl, the original owners decided to sell the “albatross”. Jack Shafton, who is now V.P. Sales and Marketing at loudspeaker manufacturer Golden Ear, bought the company and moved it to Illinois.

    If I was on a really tight budget, I would buy a used thorens and a new ortofon mm cart.

    Don't know about the rebuilt ones but some of the vintage models in original condition are really good, I'm not up on all the current ones but the DP-100 is the best dd table I ever heard.

    K. What do you think of some of the rebuilt, older Denon DDs?

    I was thinking of their direct drives, just checked their website and looks like the new owners have phased them all out. Their recent dd tables were very musical and accurate, imo dd has clear advantage over the belt driven tts in this end of the market.

    Are you not asking the wrong people some of the guys on here have their gear delivered by Brinks .
    I thought the Rega good at shows but didn't think the cartridge would win any tracking awards.

    The Td 309 is well worth considering as a affordable turnatble with a very interesting design and good engineering that is not a middle of the road solution. Price 2K. Although why they bother to include a crappy audio technica mm cart (worth like 60$) in the deal is beyond me.

    Sure, still I'm thinking it should be included by default. The experience goes downhill pretty quickly with dirty records.

    Where is Discwasher when we need them!
