Poll will be up in a minute. Pick your Top 3 'tables for (more or less) a kilobuck. Notes, for the OCD/stickler contingent, otherwise known as 'engineers': – '$1000-class' is $700-1250 USD. Yep, that's arbitrary, and so's life. – Price is MSRP and for new 'tables, not used/open-box/demo/discontinued/'special double-secret under this phase of the blood-moon only' sale-priced 'tables. I also don't care about your damn coupons. – Price is w/arm, which doesn't really matter, since nearly all 'tables in this class come with one. – Also doesn't really matter if the 'table comes with a cart and/or phono or not, the total package price determines. – Yep, the poll is US-centric. But nearly all of these 'tables are available in the EU and Asia, albeit for slightly different prices than US. – Yes, the Schiit Sol and Technics SL1200Mk7 aren't out yet. But if you're a big enough fan that you know you're gonna buy one and/or feel you have a good handle on how good they're going to be, go ahead and vote for 'em. No one's going to come to your house and berate you for it. – "I'm pretty sure there's a bunch of Pro-Ject and Thorens TTs you forgot!" Didn't forget 'em. Pro-Ject and Thorens have more models than infinity, and it isn't fair to let them dominate the poll based solely on # of models. I tried to include their stronger ones. – "You forgot Dual!" Dual doesn't sell in the US, I think. Feel free to post about it if I'm wrong. – "You forgot Mondo Obscuro Turntable X, dang it!" Choose 'Other' in the poll, and post about Mondo Obscuro Turntable X in the thread. – "Do I have to vote for the best-sounding one? Can I vote for the best value? Or the one that best matches my decor?" I sure can't stop you. – "Why do I get to vote for up to three choices?" Because life is a mystery wrapped in an enigma slathered in secret sauce. And because sometimes it's very close between your top picks. You don't have to use all three picks either. Thanks.
