    Same :) the blue jeans LC1 cables are as low capacitance as you can get, I’m sure my GR and AtVm740ml appreciate it

    Similarly, I don’t use the included interconnect cable, but only because I already had low-capacitance cables to use. The included cable does seem like decent quality cable, though, not the cheapo cable you get included with most components.

    My new journey is about to begin, just bought this SL-1200GR with ORTOFON 2M BLUE as gratis included (good deal I guess). The package should arrive tomorrow.

    Nice. You got a $240 cart as part of the deal. Enjoy your new table.

    Yes, that is a good deal. Even if you decide to try a different cartridge, the 2M Blue at no cost can’t be a bad starting point!

    OK - I just bought a 1210-GR from the UK simply because I prefer the black finish, and I was told that all 1210-GR's had a voltage switch that could be set to 110v...but I am having no luck finding it. Could someone please point me in the right direction?

    Thanks

    Should be listed somewhere in manual. The power supply is a SMPS so I’m pretty sure it can handle any voltage you set it to

    OK, thanks - maybe I misunderstood and he was just saying it would work with either voltage...?

    There was a voltage switch under the platter of the 1210 mk2.

    Fun! Just set mine up this morning. Sounds great so far - can't wait to see where it goes once the cartridge actually breaks in.

    Guys can you instruct me how to align the cartridge using the included overhang gauge, the simplest way :D?
