The current manufacturers are still trying to figure out how to replicate the DD motor stability from the peak of Japanese TT manufacturing. That has been replaced by fancy plinths and space age tonearm materials with inferior motor systems. It's the reason that Technic's turntables are back and they were nowhere near the cutting edge in that era, but they still had the ability to re-start production while the other leaders in the field did not.
    Seriously? You don't think the SP-10 MKII and MKIII were at the cutting edge of DD tables when they were being manufactured and sold?

    I am well aware of the technical merits of the Technics "professional" line of DD tables, but that is not what the average consumer equates with the Technics brand and not what they started their re-entry to the field with. Instead they started with their "famous" model from the SL line most consumers saw and used. Many of the other Japanese brands of that era also had "professional and broadcast" models that rarely saw the light of day in the US.

    OBTW, congrats on you retirement and move.

    Thanks. Things are coming together nicely and we love our new home and location. The new SP-10 that Technics is bringing to market now is supposed to be an improvement upon the SP-10 MKIII and we all know what they have been selling for on the used market. Those prices might fall apart now that the new table will be available.

    Glad things are working out for you in the new situation. Are you still happy with the KO's in the new room? I've been kind of considering changing from time to time but wonder how much it would cost to do much better unless I went in a different direction all together like the AG's.

    I can understand how you feel, I have 4 Denon TT, (2) DP-52F, a DP-59L, and a DP-61F, all are running Denon MC cartridges...I have been very happy with the Denon brand for many a year. My first table was a DP-52F (still have that table) that I bought in 1982...
