    Default Would you buy a Technics 1200 MK5 Gold turntable for $700??

    Hey lads. I just got back from a second hand store down the way and saw a limited edition, gold MK5 for $700! I know it's loads of money but I think they may be a collectors' item and will hold value (or increase) in the future. What should I do?

    That's about the cost for a regular old used pair around here, and about half the cost of time-machine (new in box) mk5g in New York http://turntablelab.com/collections/...0m5g-turntable.

    That's not that much. Go for it if it is what you want.

    Er yeah!
    It's not the gear. It's how you use it.
    limitations are the source of creativity.
    If you don't practice you don't want it.

    I think ANYTHING gold looks tacky. I just don't like the colour.
    Aesthetically I don't think you can beat a standard 1210.

    Whatever floats ya boat though dude. I certainly understand the 'desire' when it grabs you.

    I would buy it to resell since they are pretty hideous. You can prob get a bit more for it on ebay though. edit: prices may be different in japan and not worth quite as much there, no idea.

    I love them. A pair of black and golds would be part of my dream setup!
