Thanks, I'll have to look into seeing if that's available in my neck of the woods.
Definitely a beautiful table.
Does anyone have any experience with Pro-ject? All I see are good reviews and the model I'm looking at comes with an Ortofon red so there's $100 right there.

I use records for that and don't have to justify it to my friends.

I already use an Ortofon red and it was worth every penny. I just want to have a turntable that I don't have to fiddle with every 6 months or so due to the belt slipping or the motor seizing. They're easy to fix but it's a pain in the ass.

I worked for TEAC for several years, I wouldn't buy a TEAC.

I know you want something new, not vintage, but the next time you're in Toronto check this place out... it's a furniture store but they had all kinds of really high end vintage turntables for cheap:

Should be there in April sometime and will definitely check it out. I'm not opposed to a vintage table as long as it's worthy of the price tag. I've thought about maybe a Technics 1200 but that could run me more in the $800 range and that would be lucky.

I have the Pro-Ject Debut III and I love it.
Setup is super easy as is swapping out carts.

Good to hear, that's the model I'm looking at.
Looks super simple and I've yet to see a bad review when compared to other tables in it's price range.
But I'm really surprised at all the rave reviews of the AT-LP120.
