That’s a super looking turntable and since it’s a Technics SP-10R motor it may well be the "best" out there.   The only problem is price.  Based on what SAT charges for their tonearm the tu...

Put NOS Mullard 12AU7 in L-10000, nice improvement.   Now trying Takatsuki 300B in place of sock Russian tubes.   This is a very fine preamp, quite beautiful.
