    They made enough of them that it's not impossible to find one, unlike the first two that are damn near impossible to find. There are other linear models too, the entry model PS-LX520 for instance is quite easy to find for sale and quite inexpensive, but it's nothing like a TOTL model like the other ones I listed - works ok but nothing to get excited over.

    So glad that Vynyl is back, just wished they would crank out more albums at a faster rate.

    Don't overlook the PS-X50/60/70 units. They are real sleepers and sound fantastic easily competing with many so called value audiophile tables, ie Rega.

    I think this pretty much covers it, although I would add in the original Biotracer - the PS-B80. http://www.thevintageknob.org/sony-PS-B80.html

    Have a PS-X800 and a TTS-3000a. Each different animals but extremely pleased with both. Made me a Sony fan.

    My PS-1800a made me a big Sony turntable fan. I still have it along with a TTS-3000 and a PS-X75. Still my favorite top three tables.
