    Default NEW TURNTABLE - Audio Technica AT-LP1240 vs Technics SL1210.

    Looks pretty sick... not that i'd replace my 1200s for it but new man might want to

    I was thinking the same thing. From the description of the torque and pitch fader to the position of the start/stop controls, it looks like Hanpin all the way.

    yeah search around for "super oem" if you are interested. there's like 25+ different manufacturers/models that have put out different variants based on the same OEM TT . I have never owned one but have messed with them and they don't seem bad for the money.

    Time for a summary thread bringing together all of the S-OEM TT's?

    I had no idea there was as many as 25!

    If I ran into money, I'd retire my Technics and get a pair.

    Has anyone done tonearm mods to any Super OEM turntable yet?

    Super OEM turntables are FAR better than Technics for certain applications, especially if you value high torque. 4.5kgf-cm vs 2.5.

    they look decent...
    priced @ 439 i could imagine its a toss up between buying 1 x new AT-LP1240 vs a pair of used 1210's
    if the added features float your boat its a no brainer
