I LOVED this turntable. My dad bought it for me when I was about 14 or 15 years old for $250. It was used from a serviceman who had purchased it from the PX in Germany. It was Very highly regarded and would play standing up or on it side, even upside down. I had MANY years of fun with the SL-10. I even used it to DJ with for several years until I got a Technics 1200. I finally sold it about 30 years later…. for $250.
