Is a WIN SEC-10 turntable worth $1,000 bucks. I was thinking of buying a retro B&O but came across the aforementioned.
B&O TT's while nice looking are not really audiophile gear. Sao Win has a great reputation for making quality products. Check out the Audiogon listings for used TT's.
B&O snuck in a few winners, and Soundsmith keeps your carrtidge options quite alive with their B&O replacement cartridges.
The RX-2 was a real sleeper, and can be had for almost free at this point.
Ebay has them sell for 50 bucks or less!
I'd call an RX-2 a no lose proposition if you want to experiment.
I agree Buddha,I have always liked the B&O line, even the old stuff. So well made and long lasting and if I can p/u an old retro TT for a few pesos who's gonna care?
