I'm looking to sell my Technics 1210, there are many tired dogs out there; mine is immaculate and was bought brand new by a chap in 2011 (invoice attached) I believe it was one of the last made and I have the original bill of sale. He just used it to rip all his vinyl and then sold it to me. It was in pristine condition when I bought it (I searched for months for the perfect, unmolested example) and still is now. I've probably used it for about 5 hours maximum.
I carried out a few mods
1) Isonoe feet
2) Funk Firm Achromat
3) Sumiko head shell
4) External PSU. I can't remember the name of it.
5) AT440MLa cartridge
6) I removed the hinge brackets of the lid as I was told playing it without the lid attached improved SQ
These are all very sensible low key mods that are recommended by most enthusiasts and I avidly followed the advice of Marco over on AOS.
The deck itself is unmarked, 100% pristine. The lid has one small scratch. This deck has never been used for DJ work etc.
The mods themselves cost over £500.
I also have a Jelco SA 750 D which will be for sale. I've been told it's a great match for the 1210, I just never got around to fitting .
I would prefer collection if at all possible. I have recently sold a phono preamp on this forum and if you read the feedback of the seller you will see I am genuine and the product was in excellent condition.
If you want one of the last made 1210s in A1 immaculate condition and without any of the major mods then this is the one for you.
Asking price £650 (excluding delivery)
