1975 TECHNICS SL-1500 TURNTABLE

IN NICE VISUAL & GREAT WORKING CONDITION.


This is our Much Upgraded & Recapped SL-1500 as we've blogged about many times. Currently the SL-1500 has more interest on ebay than the SL-120 we upgraded to, based on our opinion of it. Multivoltage 110-240v.

Very Decent Used Condition. We've Recapped & Upgraded the Power supply if it still starts instantly as originally. The Technics Arm we've had fully apart to service as these get aged & start to stick causing mistracking, this one is spot on & all the original parts.

Condition is nice, the Plinth has no corrosion spots as you may see these with on the front edge. Some mild hand rest glossing by the Technics word. Still has the 'Made In Japan' sticker & all lettering is good. The aluminium platter is nice on the edge with no grey bits & the original mat. The top perspex lid is original, has no scratches if light 'dust marks' from being around 43 years as is typical. You could get it professionally polished up to have it look glossy.. Original hinges with the 4 screws to hold the lid on.

We added 2 Phono Sockets to lose the original captive wire as shown. The Ground Cable is long & we added a new Y connector on. The feet on the SL-1500 were lousy, either useless rubber cup ones or bouncy spring ones. So we upgraded this with solid rubber feet, a sorbothane pad & then a felt pad. A much more solid & confident turntable for that.

Unlike buying Turntables usually brings, as we found with outr SL-120 & SME both having bad problems the "honest" seller chose not to reveal, this is Our Turntable that we've had a few years with regular use. It's Plug & Play which is a Great Buy. Comes with a Goldring G-800E Elliptical in the Grey plastic with the Conical spare White Stylus as pictured. Both have only had light use.

452mm wide x 150mm high x 360mm deep inc rear fittings.

All amplifiers & receivers we sell as "SERVICED" means they have always been CLEANED, CHECKED, FULLY TESTED, FULLY ADJUSTED, USED FOR MANY HOURS and are offered as good reliable amps ready for you to use. We've sold over 100 Amplifiers & Receivers now & buyers are clearly pleased with the item they get!

All amps over 20 years old need servicing as parts need attention to work properly or faults, failures, damage, noisy operation and unreliability may be present.
