    They probably always were in style. Ditch the particleboard plinth and improve them with genuine wood. bracing and vibration deadening.
    I'm loving the sound off my old woodie and a new Pickering XSV needle tonight.
    Only bad thing about the Pioneer woodies is they are VERY touchy to footfall and even sometimes skips on the shelf I ended up building for it.
    Now if they would only bring back (non Chrysler) genuine wood-panel cars!

    Hey mate, try on old Pickering XSV or Shure cartridge on that Dual. Low mass arms work and sound real good on the classic 70's Duals.
    Some of the best built automatic tables ever made I say.

    Here's my PTP Audio Solid12 - a Lenco based unit with an SME M2-12-r tonearm. Cartridges used include the Soundsmith Zephyr MIMC Star shown here, Ortofon Synergy GM SPU, Zyx R100, Hana EL and others . . . .

    More pictures are on my blog here.

    You can see/hear it in action on my YouTube channel, along with my other turntables - Kenwood KD7010, Sony Biotracer PS-X600, and Technics SL-QL1.

    Thorens TD150 MKII, SME 3009 improved arm and Shure V15 III
    Thorens TD150 MKII, Standard arm, unknown Ortofon cartridge. This is my daily user.
    Thorens TD135 MKII with standard arm, no cartridge at present and needs to be refurbished.
    JVC QL-A5R, Audio Technica AT95E cartridge. This is a really underrated deck IMO.

    BIC 960 with a Stanton 681EEE. I know that this table gets lots of negative reviews, but I bought this new in 75 and it's been in storage for the last couple of years. We just moved, and finally set my sound system up. Much to my amazement, this table works and sounds like the day I bought it! It's never been serviced or had the belt replaced! Very impressive for a budget turntable!

    I picked up a Dual CS-606 for $15 and then spent a whole lot more on a new plinth for it. Still looking for the additional counter weight so I can get rid of the ULM cart.
    Want to also change the power cord and audio cables as they are kinked and rusted.

    Wow, does that bring back memories. That was my 1st TT with a Magnetic Cartridge. I still have a dozen or so records that were played on that table. Machine Head, Tapestry to name a couple. Nice vintage find. :thumbsup:

    Rekindling my affair with audio (sold all my bachelor gear when I started my family).
    Starting vinyl experience with a Technics 1300 and a Pioneer PL 518( for comparison, had a Rega P3 when I was young and foolish). Swapping a Nag MP 110 between the two for now. Both are spinning nicely but making a few tweaks, beginning with a recabling for both (Blue Jean LC-1 cable). I am certainly having fun!

    I have finished my Thorens TD 125. It looked horrible when I first got it. Had the SME 3009 Improved arm restored and then added a new plinth, armboard, painted the deck and platter, all new springs, aluminum cups, foam and other doo dads I topped it with a new dust cover.

    Thanks Guiller I had the tonearm done at SME Tonearms in Canada. Was told it was the in the worst shape they had ever seen. The PO had it in the garage for over 20 years wrapped in packing tape.
    The headshell leads just crumbled in my hands.
