For those Sony fans, what turtable do you think was the best one made by Sony?
TTS-8000 another one: www.thevintageknob.org/sony-TTS-8000.html
For something less exotic, try a PS-X7 (touch-sense controls, carbon tonearm, direct drive, automatic) http://www.thevintageknob.org/sony-PS-X7.html
or maybe the older PS-8750 which is sexy as hell: www.thevintageknob.org/sony-PS-8750.html
PS-X800 is their TOTL linear tracker: http://www.thevintageknob.org/sony-PS-X800.html
I do like that linear, have you seen those pop up for sale very often?
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.
I found a PS-X800 for 2200 EU on eBay so I can rule that one out...lol they are nice though!
I would love to have one of those....dang!!!!
So glad that Vynyl is back, just wished they would crank out more albums at a faster rate.
I've seen several go by in the $1k range. keep watching
Don't forget the Sony PS-X70.
Spare headshell are hard to find at a bargain price though.
A very good also-ran;
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.
The bearings on the PUA-7 are incredibly low drag, a whisp of breath with the antiskate off will easily move the zero balanced arm in both axis.
The Sony PS-X600 opened my eyes as to how enjoyable spinning records could be after a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong layoff .
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
Don't forget the PS-X75 http://www.thevintageknob.org/sony-PS-X75.html and PS-X700 http://www.thevintageknob.org/sony-PS-X700.html , which were probably the best of the Biotracer pivoting tonearm models.
Have a PS-X800 and a TTS-3000a. Each different animals but extremely pleased with both. Made me a Sony fan.
have a Sony 2251, a very nice table IMO
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.
I have a PS-5550 that is one of my favorites. Just put my Denon DL-103r on it and it sounds amazing.
Sony made lots of nice tables, I have a nice PS-2250.
