    build a technics sl1200 wood made

    hello to everyone!

    I'm thinking to buy a Technics sl1200MK2 turntable and change the metal chassis for a round wood made one, there will be no electronic changes, only the chassis but i have to be sure that the turntable is well damped with wood, any suggestion??

    Thank you!!!

    Welcome to Audio Review!!!

    It may not be so easy the way parts integrate on those things. The 1200 is not a plank with a few parts bolted on. It's the result of much evolution in turntables and the build is fairly complex for a simple manual turntable. If you want something like the 1200 in wood... Why not a Denon?

    Not saying it can't be done... but look... The 3 different sections / materials of the stock chassis, along with the very nice feet do a pretty good job of controlling resonance...

    Alternatively, you could buy something like this... Add a tonearm... armboard... Build whatever kind of plinth you want. Just build it solid, damp it with damping sheets if you see fit, install nice feet... Much easier... Probably better performance...
