We have a special Harman Kardon misspelling thread at AudioKarma with some zillion posts - you also like to misspell the name of my favourite brand - so feel free to enjoy that one.

It is one of the most famous threads over there!

Dave you got for sure my pm.

Here you see my 1929 Telefunken TP74, the other one is a 1979 STP 1, which was top of the line then.
Chris that one makes me think of the two Pioneer tables that I have, a PL-88fs and a PL-44fs both HOMC tables works in a drawer. The sound is far better than one might expect and the PL-88fs is direct drive track selectable, I call it my 12" CD player. The stylus alone was $69.95

Main tables are a Yamaha PX-2 (Denon DL160) and a Rega Planar II (Signet TK5e).

My daily driver is the Pro-ject with the ClearAudio Aurum Beta S wood MkII.

The two linear trackers, a Revox and the B&O were excellent sounding tables when they worked properly. The Revox is EXTREMELY sensitive to level. Plus, I think the Grado Z2+ (Gold Equivalent) that's in it is too low compliance for it.

How much had you planed on spending?

I have done the buy everything chasing a sound and found it's not necessarily the table. Im a firm believer that a high quality cartridge makes the table. In other words a good low budget table will sound like a high dollar one if the money was spent on the cartridge instead of the deck.

I have a little Mitchell Focus One, SME 3009 and it had a V15 ii on it. I really like the table but was looking for more. I bought a SOTA Star Sapphire, SME309, Sumiko Blackbird and this table is awesome. I was so impressed with the Sumiko I decided to buy the next step down in price for the Mitchel. The Blue Point Special EVO III, now with that cart on the Mitchlell, one has to justify the cost of the SOTA as far as sound quality.

That said the end result is SOTA as my favorite deck and have bought 4 of them.

I could maybe sell one of the SOTA's
I have a very clean Thorens TD 125 with a Rabco arm on it now but have a SME 3009 to put on it instead.
I also have a very clean Techniques SP 2000

Sota Saphire that I am working on, Sota Satellite/RB300, Denon DP-45, Technics SL1200 Mk2 (I fully rebuilt this), Thorens TD140, TD-160.
And for full disclosure: Yamaha PX-3 from Rob and Elac 50H from Marc.

Oh yeah, I have my mom's 6300 out in the garage. I got it, well took it from my older sister who was destroying it. She lost 1 and a half of those crappy feet where the rubber shrinks and gets hard so they fall apart, she stacked things on it until the dust cover cracked, sheesh. I need to rethink those feet, I guess save the junk originals and figure out a good at least semi-audiophile replacement. That and change the universal cartridge.
My mom bought that, a HK 730 and a pair of AR10 speakers from the Fresno Pacific Stereo in 1976 0r 77.

Neat-o, thanks! Maybe I can figure out something there. I haven't even looked at it in six or seven years I guess. It is too bad that they go for stupid money nowadays, not that it really matters, I sure wouldn't be buying one at these prices. Maybe I am missing something about these turntables....
