I've had a technics SL-DD33 for 10 years
I have never replaced the belt, it works perfectly.
The advantage of this turntable is that once the stylus has been adjusted correctly, it places itself automatically on the record (45 rpm, 33 rpm, or EP) and the tonearm goes back to its initial position once the record is over, everything just by pushing the Start button.
A Repeat button allows you to play the same record several times.
I bought this turntable back then because I had an electrophone and sometimes had problems finding the groove and sometimes missed the record.
Another thing: Once correctly adjusted, I have been able to get successful results 99% of the time and the stylus is placed automatically at the edge.
In case of failure, this turntable also has a manual button.
The speed is regulated automatically, which is a good point.
Unfortunately, I think the quality of the styli has deteriorated through the years. In the beginning, I used Technics T4P styli (1 per year), but the brand stopped manufacturing them and now they last less (6 months).
New styli sound great with this turntable, but after several months you can start hearing crackles and the sound is less clear from the point when you start cleaning the records with alcohol, the crackles are heard with a used tip, but less so with a new record that hasn't been cleaned with alcohol.
This turntable is very good to listen to your vinyl collection, but not for scratching like a DJ.
I recently bought a Koolsound turntable and it sounds very good, especially with ORTOFON cartridges and styli, and they last very long. But it doesn't stop when the record is over, nor does it have a repeat function or automatic positioning. A bit more restricting.
