    Any solid difference b/w the red or blue for a Technics SL-1200? Bronze/black way out of my price range.

    I’ve had both the red and blue. The red is good value and I enjoyed using it. If you can afford the blue then I’d recommend the upgrade.

    Don't really want to turn a good deal thread into a cart debate but the red is definitely a budget cart so it would really depend on what you are currently running. but from everything i've read the Blue is much better than the red.


    I'm VERY tempted by the Black at this price, but I've got a vintage Empire that sings right now

    I don't think you could find a black used for that price, no? What a deal

    I'm not sure I can resist the black at this price either. It's one I've always wanted to try. But I don't even remotely need a new cart atm. I guess I'l sleep on it, there's still a few days left on the drop.

    At these prices Black is definitely the way to go.....needle replacement is about the same price.
    I'm in.....

    Has anyone found it curious that there are photos of both the verso and standard mount on the drop? Based on the photos and descriptions it is very unclear which we are getting.

    If they are sending out verso mounts I would expect a 97% return rate.

    The specs also mention the PnP
    In the discussion, it says the Massdrop is for the standard 2M cartridges.

    This is really starting to drag on, no updates from Massdrop in a couple weeks. I don't have a good feeling, but hanging in there for now.

    My first Massdrop purchase and I'm now once bitten with them. I don't have high hopes for this actually playing out well. What a shame.

    I didn’t order myself, but a quick review of the discussion thread on the deal it’s sounding like they contracted to buy these from a third party and not direct from Ortofon

    I bought headphones from them before and they delivered ahead of the estimate and they got them direct from sennheiser, apparently not the case here

    Well, I was on the verge of cancelling my order anyway, but just received an email notice that the drop has been cancelled and I am being refunded. Should have known the price for the black was too good.

    Whole experience doesn't have me chomping at the bit to join another drop (this was my first one). But they did give me a $10 member credit, so we'll see.

    Clearly they suck. $10 wouldn't but me off.

    I’ve bought a few items from Massdrop. Every item arrived around the promised date, well packed and brand new. This is the first drop that didn’t go well. And I was really looking forward to getting a Black...
