MY SL 1700..was made in the 1970's...sometime.
The motor was a tad different from the 1200..but nothing i could hear.
They don't make parts for this..but the head shells are interchangeable.
They don't have a rewire kit for this. But say..it's not that bad as is.
So i can just cut off the old rca plugs...put on some new gold plated stuff, and get a new headshell.....which is just easyer to to put cartragies in.
So once agian...this table will beet the crap out of way over priced Raga or VPI stuff. My table is at least 30LB's....total sprung....NEVER had a problem with volume..thats why I bought it. Plus is built like a tank. To be honest I have never found a table that comes close..even for mega bucks......
