Updated August 1st, 2019 — Not sure what’s up, but I sold almost all of my stock this past week! Please stay tuned — I will have more eventually.
Buying a refurbished vintage turntable from the Turntable Doc means you get my Lifetime Labor Warranty. As long as my eyes work and I can hold tools, I will do all that is in my power to keep your turntable running. You only pay for any worn or damaged parts. This is a much better deal than buying an entry-level new turntable which is made from inexpensive materials and will only have a 1-year warranty. I stand behind my work.
Also note that any of these can have different cartridges or styli installed if you’d prefer a different brand and/or an upgrade. Let me know what you’d like.
One last note: I am not shipping any turntables that I have for sale. I’ve just had too much trouble with shipping services and turntables and it’s difficult to provide long distance warranty service.

ual 1229 — $425 sold A fine example of Dual’s excellent deluxe idler drive model from the early ’70s. Fully automatic with 33/45/78 speeds. This unit has been fully reconditioned and fitted with a new aftermarket stylus on an Audio Technica cartridge (I can provide other stylus/cart configurations if you’re interested in 78 RPM playback). Very nice wood and smoked perspex plinth/dustcover. A few wear marks on the metal base but still in great shape.
Marantz Model 6200– $350 sold Classic and classy Marantz fully-automatic belt drive. New belt, new Empire stylus, fully serviced with a nice dust cover. These are great performers and hold resale value. This one has some minor dings but still in very nice condition.
Denon DP-35F– $350 sold This deck performs far better than it’s price tag. The Denons from this era are really remarkable players. They have one fatal flaw that presents itself as they age — the electrolytic capacitors fail and render the microprocessor useless. On this unit, I have replaced every electrolytic cap (a ton of work!) and it’s performing flawlessly. Not to mention, it sports the original (used but still with lots of life left) Denon DL-110 cartridge. These are the best cartridges I sell and sound amazing. Quartz-locked, fully automatic in almost new condition. This one is an outstanding value.
Pro-Ject Debut — $125 sold These are excellent entry-level belt-drive AC motor turntables. This one has a fresh belt and a new aftermarket Ortofon OM stylus. Sounds fabulous. It has a couple dings on the glossy piano black plinth and the dustcover has some major damage at the hinges and a piece missing on the left side (visible in pic) but still functions. This is a great value as a starter deck.
Sony PS-LX310 — $125 sold Great semi-auto quartz-locked direct drive. Very reliable performer in very good shape with a nice dustcover. Comes with a Shure M92 p-mount cartridge with a brand new aftermarket stylus.
Technics SL-J2 — $95
These are such nifty little decks — quartz-locked linear trackers with a track search feature! Excellent performers too. This one is a scratch and dent, thus the discounted price — the back corner was damaged in shipping and it has some marks on the top cover. It operates as an auto deck for 12″ records but needs to be set manually for 7″. Another excellent value as a starter unit.
