    Rega Planar 3. Just upgraded from Planar 1 what a difference! I've run a Pro-ject Debut Carbon, Technics SL-1300, and have an SL-1301 in my other system but damn the P3 sounds phenomenal.

    Update: still using the RP3, but I've returned to using the Nagaoka MP-110. It sounds better now than it did initially, probably because I've added a Rega phono stage and zeroed out the tone controls on my Marantz amp. I'm not sure the Nag is quite the surface noise killer it's cracked up to be, but it's fine.

    I've got the Hitachi HT-21 belt-driven turntable in my possession that belongs to my parents who bought it before I was born. All it needs is to replace the stylus, place the belt, and recalibrate the turntable. :)

    I've been a fan of Technics no drama direct drive tables for decades now. Since the mid-80's, I used one primary table, a quartz locked, linear arm, SL-QL1. I've drooled over many brands and had a few tables over the years to play with, currently having a Denon -DP23f, and Marantz TT-530. Both are direct drive. But just yesterday, my brand new Technics SL-1210GR arrived and I am in vinyl heaven (using an AT450 NE cartridge).

    I have two Regas, a Planar 3/Elys 2 and a Planar 6/Exact. Ease of setup was important to me.
