Finally, I am the owner of this famous turntable, the SL-1210 MK2!! Last week the local record shop where I normally go to had gotten 2 of these units in, both new in their original boxes with original owner manuals. The shop owner mentioned that the person who brought them in was going to use them for DJ work, but that never happened so he ended up giving them up. Price I got for this table? $350!! Knowing what these tables retail for I think that was an awesome deal. The first table was sold the day after they got these in....so I was very glad to jump on this deal (while it was there)! Look forward to spin some vinyl on this table pretty soon. Looks like my AT-PL120 will be taking a back seat now..though I will still keep it since it has 78RPM capability. Think I did good!
