    Years ago I had a PL-200. It was a rather nice TT and I was sorry I traded it in on an Onkyo that had more bells and whistles but poor isolation. It got fried during an electrical storm. I replaced it with a Pioneer PL-530 that I picked up 20 years ago in a yard sale for $35 and I still have today.

    Thanks for the kind words.
    It sounds very good my first Empire 2000 E/III Cartridge this is the crystal stylus and from what is can gather you can't buy it anymore it's thinner than the replacements that are offered OEM.
    I also have a Pioneer Pl510A (a tank) but I was looking for something automatic so I don't have to watch it so closely.

    A couple of weeks ago i picked up a Pioneer pl88fs for 20.00 bucks. Cant go wrong when you a good deal on a turntable that is ready to play. Seems like some just stop using them & then they collect dust. GOOD FOR US that want to rotate things around in our systems

    I love the look of the Marantz. I sold one for a friend about a year ago (to a Polkie in Pa.), just needed some Deoxit I think and a good cleaning inside but otherwise was as nice as yours apparently is. Beautiful TT.

    Here's my Technics SL - 2000.
    I got this off ebay a while back from an older lady that had never sold anything on Ebay.
    She was a musician and used it for practice till Mp3's came along.
    Anyway she took it down to the UPS office in an old super thick green with paisley slipcover for a sofa size pillow and told them to box and wrap and ship for her.
    Kinda sad she spent $48 shipping it to me and had replaced the cartridge about a year ago for $45.
    She never has listed anything on ebay since.
    How do I know?
    We talked on the phone 3 times since the sale at first she called to thank me for buying it then she was concerned on it's arrival and then if I was pleased and told me that was it, never again, some people you will never forget.

    I had a 10.00 item on Craigslist. I thought ad ran out. A guy from Pennsylvania called me. Asked if id ship it to him. Well i said'then said yes. It cost 16.85 to ship. Box tape gas. And i think when i was done i made 6.00--probably wouldnt do it again. But he got it. He was VERY happy with item. He said same item on Ebay would have been 50.00 + shipping & it was not in NO WAY NEAR condition. So it made my day'to help someone

    just had this one serviced. And it works quite well now. It wasnt holding speed correctly. Easy fix from what he was explaining. Because i just gotta know

    Nice Pioneer. I wonder who made the TT for Marantz. I have a Sanyo that is very similar - especially the levers & adjustable weights for anti skate, etc. To be honest, I have the Sanyo just about refurbished & have no idea how to do the adjustments.
