Question about Technics SL-1210M5G Turntable
They actually need to be "broken in". The mk5 uses a different pitch board, allowing you to reverse, pitch up and down to 16, and lock and unlock the quartz. The mk5 is more precise, so its also more sensitive. Notice the notches on the turntable shaft behind the tonearm weight. The mk5 is just make to be finer calibrated.....your decks are fine, and more so probably your mk2s as well.
Oh and also, the infinite lubrication used on technics that was developed in the 70s is no match for the formula developed in the late 90s. Slick!!
