I think this topic has been touched upon before, but if
anyone is looking for a great starter level turntable,
these are great. I have had mine for 3 years with no
problems whatsoever. The platter is nice and heavy,
and the construction is top notch. I have records that
skipped in 7 or 8 places on other turntables, but only once have I ever had one skip on this model, even at a low gram setting.
They are manual and kind of labor
intensive, since you have to change the belt from 45 to 33, but the sound
is great for bands from everything from Black Witchery to
Morbid Angel. I got mine for 350.00 new. I don't work for them or any
online shop that sells them, but you should check these out.

the only thing I would say is that belt drives would not be my first option after experiencing direct drive turntables.

After getting so much records in my collection, I should've invest in a quality turntable. Right now, I've got a crappy Sony belt-driven turntable... Embarassed

It's a metal-phenomenon that people with HUGE collections most times have extremely old and fucked up turn-tables. That's something I will never understand...

I bought a Denon DP297 last year and Im really satisfied with that. Paid about 300$ for that here. Albums which would usually jump plays flawless on this one. Good thread!

I have have purchased some Lp's (back in black label, learned my lesson)
that were so warped
they looked like a potato chip and the Project rides them with
virtually no sound difference, although my ear may not be able to pick up this because I am by far, not an audiophile.

This is what I own:

http://cgi.ebay.com/sansui-sr-929-vintage-high-end-turntable_W0QQitemZ120327940799QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVintage_Electronics_R2?hash=item120327940799&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1234|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318

Inherited it from my audiophile grandfather. Beautiful condition too, except for the fact one leg is broken. I also covered the lid with stickers.

I've given it thought to getting rid of it and getting something more modest.

I also got McIntosh power and pre-amps from him and selling those are among my biggest mistakes ever.

Like I said , I am no audiophile, but that looks pretty damn amazing.
You can tell the quality and care put into the design.
Nice.

about gram settings... is it like it would wear out the records quicker if you use a really high gram setting? many of my records skips when it gets to the last few grooves inside so i always use a very high gram setting now. usually how many grams is appropriate?

This may be controversial as it depends on the record, not to kiss ass,
but labels like NWN put out such quality stuff, that I have experimented, and I can put them on about 10 grams with no skips, problems etc. I use about 17 as a default setting. The whole turntable thing is, for lack of a better word, bizzare, as there are so many variables regarding this topic.
If you want to have some fun, google any audiophile turntable nerd site (I guess I am a record nerd) and read about heated arguments about physics shit and perpendicular tracking formulas, ratio E=Mc2 stuff. Really hilarious.

I have a Technics SL-1200MK2 turntable! A true behemoth, will never let you down!! A classic quartz synthesizer direct-drive Twisted Evil I paid $550 + shipping but it's a killer piece of equipment. I am a record and audiophile nerd too... As for the gram settings it's really important to experiment. You don't wanna have a nail and a hammer for a stylus, which will destroy your LP's eventually. Every equipment needs to be set up properly otherwise it won't perform as the manufacturer wanted. Now when the case goes to delicate stuff like records the correct setup is mandatory.

I have one of these Project turntables too. Have had for about 5 years and been nothing but satisfied! And yeah, plays tricky LPs with no trouble at all. Great stuff!

Agreed!
It's better to invest on good hi-fi equipment and (re)discover how our favorite albums really sound.
On other side, I know that's hard to miss new releases...
