Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
What a load of rubbish - The deck of course does have a motor - a diect drive set of coils and a static magnet on the platter. The 'capacitors, resistors and IC's' form the circuits controlling this motor.
The problem could be a bad connection in one of the channels controlling the motor, but is unlikely to be any of the IC's.
Like the noob above says - it is repairable for around Euro100.

FYI, there is no motor on these units. The only thing that makes these babies go round is various capacitors, resistors, and IC's... all which play a crucial role in control and maintaining the unit's speed. If you do not have enough torque, then the issue is probably with one of the main IC's (IC101, IC102, or IC201) - however, it could be any of the other circuits as well. A qualified technician should be able to pin point the problem and have it repaired for you. The repair on this isn't that expensive. I'm going to assume 350E is euro? If so, you might as well buy yourself a new Technics 1200 for that amount. If it is not euro, then this type of repair should cost you about $70-120 - including parts and labor. (these are the prices we charge in our NYC shop - for comparison purposes).
