I recently got back into vinyl and bought a Pro-Ject Debut III TT. Once I had got it set up properly I have been very pleased with the sound, albeit with quite a lot of surface noise. Last week I tried a friend's Technics SL1210 TT on my system. The quality was much better - less surface noise, and a more powerful sound. Is this to be expected? I had always considered the Technics to be a DJ deck as opposed to a good domestic TT. I realise it is a lot more expensive than the Project Debut, but would it hold its own against £350 TTs such as the Project RPM4 etc?
