    As soon as I sold my decks back in 2007 I regretted it....So on the hunt for a single or pair of mint condition Technics SL-1200 turntables.

    I live in Reading, Berkshire but can travel.

    Let me know what you have. I would be willing to pay around £400 for a single and £800-£900 for a pair.

    Location: Reading

    Would you be interested in a pair of Vestax D3 Mk2's? They're in pretty decent condition overall, bedroom use only.

    If you're a turntablist then these decks stand tall over the Technics.

    £450 for the pair.

    I have one of these in my loft that's been boxed for over a year. Are you still after one? I'm in Newport but could meet in Bristol maybe

    I am picking up a pair of 1200mk2 tomorrow night but I only need one deck.

    So I'll have one for sale. It's in good condition, not mint. There is a crack in the dust cover and a few small marks to the deck but in overall very good shape. Also includes a flight case and ortofon nightclub cart.

    Would you be interested??

    I'm in west wales so will prob have to post, shouldn't be an issue though as it would be in its flight case.

    I'll get some pics up tonight, there are a few marks where the hinges have marked the metal but that's it, it is tidy for its age!

    Good stuff, how much were you thinking? If you could check the pitch as well, tighter the better obviously..

    I'm not going to be asking eBay prices but it's not going too cheap either. I'm looking at £300 plus shipping. Any less and I may as well eBay it.

    How does that sound to you? Obviously dependant on pics of course

    I don't I'm afraid, it will have to be postage only. Would you be interested in the pair with a vestax pmc pro 2 mixer?

    We have a problem. I've just been testing my deck and the needle or cart seems to have gone. I'll need the cartridge from this one so it will be sold without a cart/needle. I understand if this is an issue and you no longer want the deck! Sorry!
