    Any suggestions for a cartridge and needle for a Pioneer PL-15D-II?

    Well I have seen the stylus in the 150-175.00 range, not sure what the cartridge would cost. Would like to spend about $250.00 total?

    What I've found with so called "better...micro line,shibata" type styli is the more pronounced treble response. Hence system matching is to be considered greatly,you don't want to be adding this if your system isn't bass heavy. Not too much of an
    issue if one can remedy other ways ie speaker positioning though.Just my thoughts from experience.

    I have only one, a Technics SL-1300. Well, actually two as I have another 1300 I bought for parts a few years back as it was just too cheap to pass up as an insurance policy. If I played a ton of vinyl, I'd probably buy a brand new TT however.

    Two of these. I have had the one in the photo for about 38 years. I bought it with the SME 3009 but like the BW much more.

    I just bought my first one a few weeks ago. Sanyo TP-1020. I bought it to play my Dad's LPs. I used to listen to them on his Dual when I was a teenager. I am eyeballing the U-turn Orbit. IMG_20180103_014450.jpg

    Your Sanyo is probably a better machine than the u-turn orbit. It has better specs, the counterweight is actually calibrated, cue device isn't optional, has a strobe light, a removable headshell, has auto stop

    A Rotel RP-855. I've been considering going more upscale with something like a Rega RP3, Vinyl Nirvana a Thorens TD-160, maybe a good ol' Technics 1200 or variant, or something else.

    Dual 502 (my favorite, had since new 1976)
    Audio-technica AT-LP120
    And last but not least pioneer PL-800
    I have many hours of use on all and while no where near the level of so many TT owned by many on forum they have all been loved and treated as if they were.

    The humble Pioneer PL117 is my current daily driver. Thinking about something automatic in the future though.

    I always seem to fall back on the simple one
    My 502 its bullet proof and will track with the table at 45° its probably that I have had it 41 years or so but its so basic in design and has been a joy. I put it away in the mid 80s and had put a new TOTL empire cartridge on it. I have replaced the belt once and cabling once
    Its still my fav...

    Here is the jewel of all the TT's I have owned so far.
    It is a Thorens TD-160 with a custom Plinth made of Mahogany, 100 year old red oak, Walnut splines, and Hard maple corner splines.
    All connections in the rear are jack type inset into the wood, so there are no permanent cords attached to the table.
    Recently completed. it still has a couple minor things it needs, main one being a dust cover..
