Technics SL-B 202
Technics Halbautomatik Plattenspieler mit Riemenantrieb. 33/45U/Min., pitchbar! Haube defekt, nur als Auflegehaube zu benutzen, siehe Bilder. Guter Tonarm mit abnehmbarem Headshell nach SME Norm. Es ist ein kleines Ortofon MM-System dabei.
I have owned a Technics for 40 years. Since I bought it new in 1980. It's belt drive.
I have been very happy with this turntable all these years. I use your Shure m110E cartridge with an sas stylus.
Very nice starter table. A nice belt drive, from Technics. Although I thought technics was better on the Direct Drive ( they invented it) , Belt Drive TT from Technics are not a step down ! Although I own a SL3310, SL-B202 is not bad ! Run it with AT91, AT95, AT VM 8 . Sound is nice, smooth , dynamic and strong. It sounds like a high end TT. However, although it looks like a SL1200 this is not a DJ TT , but a good cheap performer. I think sooner or later to replace the audio cables...but i am afraid I am not going to find good replacement around here...
I bought this recently as I wanted to try a belt driven Technics. It required a new belt and stylus and came with an original Technics cartridge. The platter runs at a steady and accurate speed whilst the sound produced is excellent. This is a great turntable at a sensible price!
Pretty decent starter table. Bought a new stylus (ADC K8-E) for the cart, cleaned it up and lubed the motor. Sounds very nice through my Denon system. Speed is steady. Good enough to sound pretty good, but I don't have to worry about my kids using it either. Easy to adjust.
Nice starters turntable. Mounted a new cartridge Audio Technica AT-95E. Motor runs perfectly on strobo,See elsewhere my review for the AT-95E. Sound quality superb related to the costs for it.
I rate it a 8 because it is my first TT. I know there are better out there, but for the money it is great to learn about TT on. It sounds good and I have the speed running steady. I bought a SL1200 headshell with a Pickering TLE cart and a DLE stylus for 35.00. and new belt 10.00. Someday might buy a nicer TT but this one is good for now. Tom. :)
