How long have you been using it?

For over 17 years!!!

Did you try any of other models before buying this one?

My first turntables were belt-drive products from Stage Line. They were good enough for a beginner but I bought a secondhand mkII as soon as I had the opportunity and I never turned back again.

Which feature do you like the most / the least?


Manufacturing quality
Plate stability
Amazing torque (although I've had the opportunity to try out synq models that have a higher one)


Nothing except perhaps the connections (the RCA conductors are not easily accessible in case you have to replace them)
The potentiometer's detent at "0" is not very practical but you can replace them with Denon.

How would you rate its value for money?

The price is rather high but if ever find it secondhand, don't hesitate... GO FOR IT!!!

Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?

Two times YES... without hesitation!!!
