  1. My son recently bought one of those with the acrylic platter. Surprised how good it sounds with a Hana EH.
  2. As am I with my Pro-ject 2Xperience Classic. Very good build quality contrary to what many people say about Pro-ject tables, and sounds pretty good too armed with a Hana EH. I don't own a Skoda or any other type of car.
  3. New mainly from Amazon followed by Ebay and Juno. Recently been buying used vinyl and CDs off Discogs.
  4. If you go with the Pro-ject then providing it's off a reputable dealer you should be ok if you need to return it. Might be a good idea to contact them first and ask about the hum issues. If they are worth their salt then they'll tell you to return the table for a fuss-free replacement or refund if there's a problem. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.
  5. or at least do some research before buying.
  6. For some reason Americans on the Steve Hoffman forum often complain about hum with Pro-ject Debut models. It never ceases to amaze me how many try to fix it by messing around with a table still under warranty instead of returning it to the seller.
  7. I had the same arm on a Rotel RP-855. It's a bit of a mystery who the manufacturer is, but it's not Jelco according to some bloke who emailed Jelco to find out. It's an ok arm but I replaced it to good effect with a RB300. It's near as dammit Linn geometry so your Systemdek will need a new armboard if you get a Rega arm. Switching arms was not so easy with the old Rotel as it needed a fair bit of work but was worth the effort.
