    Need some advice from ya'll.
    I'm looking to add a decent turntable to my stereo, nothing crazy, I'd only spin every once in a while.
    Specifically a fully manual, affordable, vintage YAMAHA or new U-turn.
    I've been checking ebay for months for a yammi but they're all either automatic or insanely expensive / overpriced.
    My plan was to spend under $250 with a new cartridge, bc that's what a new U-turn with Grado Black1 costs.
    Am I missing something?
    I've actually given up and am super close to picking up a Technics SL-1500 locally when I thought I'd post here as a last effort.
    Thanks all for any input!

    If the Technics SL-1500 is in good operating order, it will fulfill your needs quite well.

    Nice! You have the rare chance to directly compare those preamps to each other. So what say you?

    This is a very clean looking system.

    I just finished cleaning up and relamping these two in the pic. I've had the CR-2040 sitting around for a few years waiting for my ambition to catch up to the growing pile of stuff that needs some attention. I picked up the CR-640 a year or two ago at a GW for next to nothing. But when I thought of "my Yamaha stuff," I almost forgot the other pieces that have accidentally amounted to quite a pile (although I'd keep the silver stuff--and maybe the S2300--but wouldn't much miss the rest).

    CR-2040
    CR-640
    CR-620 (x2)
    DVD-S2300
    RX-V2092
    HTR-5840
    HTR-5835
    RX-730
    KX-630
    CDC-50
    (Plus a set of surround speakers w/ a center and a sub around here somewhere)

    One owner and all original condition, first release year.
    It's only temporarily in my listening rig, where it really doesn't belong.

    An extra-rare Yamaha power amp with V-FETs from the Golden era of Japanese audio: B-3. I think I'll stop for a good period of time in spending money on amplifiers.
    This one is a revelation!

    had to move things around and pulled another B-1 out of the box. The B-1s may as well be carved out of stone, that's how heavy they are. Moveing a set of NS-1000Ms or a B-2 after, feels like feather-weight.....But, the B-1/C-1 sure look good in pairs so I had to stop for a photoshoot :biggrin:
    did not have time to clean them so they are full of fingerprints

    Thanks! They sure are beauties.
    With the exception of that silver B-1, all units are in excellent cosmetic condition and were all virgin as far as I could tell. That B-2 as well. Perfect candidates for rehab.
    The other C-1 I am working on is also just as nice. I got them all clean at some point and they looked even better.
