Outstanding turntable!

Be sure to check out Michael Fremer's post comparing the Technics SL1200G to the $120,000+ Caliburn Turntable with SAT Tonearm - See if you can hear the difference!

The 1200G shares all the important design features of their limited edition model and offers the same amazing sound. 

Frankly, you'll be amazed at how good this turntable is! Don't be fooled by the looks into thinking this is a re-baked SL-1200 from years past, nothing could be further from the truth. The new model is simply in a different universe and competitive with any 'table in the price range.

Add a cartridge and we'll include our expert alignment and calibration free!


Wow, I'm impressed! The DS Optical Cartridge System offers some very unique and enticing attributes, along with outstanding performance. Super quiet background, very low surface noise and detailed yet utterly smooth rendition. The associated preamp/equalizer. Very highly recommended.

Unlike conventional phono cartridges which employ an electromagnetic generator (a coil positioned within a magnetic field in the case of a moving coil design), Japan’s Digital Stream Corp. uses their vast background in optical systems to re-imagine the phono cartridge using state of the art optical technology. In the DS 002 an infrared LED and optical sensor interpolate the subtle movements of the stylus/cantilever – a unique design that eliminates a number of drawbacks found in a conventional electromagnet design.

Disappointed with the poor quality and inaccuracy of the stylus force gauges on the market? We were, and so we’re thrilled to offer the Rega Atlas – at last, a quality stylus force gauge!

We all realize the importance of precisely setting stylus force. We were all thrilled with the advent of digital gauges which promised the ability o measure out to three places. Problem is, most a poorly made and you're lucky if you get one that is accurate and lasts for more than a few months. REGA TO THE RESCUE!
