The Technics SL-D2 turntable is highly recommended by reviewers for its reliability, sound quality, and ease of use. Many suggest upgrading the cartridge for even better performance. The direct drive models from Technics are also recommended as dependable and low-maintenance options. The SL-D2 can be found for around $100-$200 on the vintage market. Some reviewers caution about potential issues with the mat rot and pitch speed pot, but overall the SL-D2 is considered a good starter turntable.
