    snagged a little pair of Mission760i's ...sound pretty good , but the build quality is WORSE than Ch1na made..these are UK produced........cabs & grills are cheap & cheesy.

    rode the Fuji way down to the GW as-is store yesterday and ran into an audio collector acquaintance of mine...he was telling me that a couple of days earlier they wheeled out a bin
    of VHS VCR's ....but a guy closer to it than he noticed a black box that didnt have the large tape opening and snagged it....my friend had to go check and see what it was ....??

    a Krell CD player ...for $5 ..... (but no remote )

    started on it today..most everything was set wrong ...cueing a no-go.
    downloaded the service manual and got it all back to optimal ...I had never
    hear an old Grado XC+ before..but wow ..this sounds great.

    when cleaning, I pulled the platter and it seemed really heavy...tossed it on the
    scale and it comes in at just under 7 pounds ..

    Wow - that's a looker and sounds great to boot! The platter, controls and arm have the professional SP15/SP25ish look to them. I wonder how much it might share with them under the hood?

    it seems "beefier" than the sl-1200 mk2 that I had...nothing like flash to show you the places that still need cleaning....

    the platter pad says" tri pad eon r&d corp canada" , it's cork on one side and a padded leather (?) on the other

    Took some pix of my SP-25 for comparison. The platter is much lighter then your M2, but my SP-15's platter is about the same weight. The SP-25 and 1200 series share many of the same parts, and I suspect the M2 does as well.

    Note the similar styling queues

    thanx for the pix, Paul ...it does seem that the SP-15 and M2 share a lot ...tho the border around the platter mat on the 15 looks wider ?

    about a year ago there was a CL ad ....."Stereo & record player ...$125" ...no models listed.

    looked at the photo and it was an SP-15 mounted in an oak plinth/table with an EPA 250 arm, Kenwood 96xx receiver and large Infinity towers ....I called and left a message ...she called back during dinner to let me know that it was sold, but "would I be interested in the record collection ??"

    everything belonged to her brother who was a Portland DJ , he died of AIDS in 1981 and all the stuff had been sitting since then...I was pissed at missing the gear (same TT turned up on CL about a month later for $600) .....but went over to Tigard to check the vinyl ....wow, looked mint.
    She was in a hurry, so I was only able to take out 60 ( at 3/$1) , but went back next week and snagged 25 more.

    Whenever I see a SP-15 that old story is dredged back to active memory ...

    Platter is 13 3/8" at the widest point, the mat is 11 5/16".

    Sorry you missed out on that great deal - what a shame. My SP-15 is a fixer-upper with speed control issues. I've done some homework and have found that this particular problem is cured 99% of the time by resoldering the PCB's. If that doesn't fix it, then its most likely the failure of the speed control chip, which is NLA. In that case its nice cosmetically, so will be used to salvage a working but fugly table. Hope to get to this one this winter - plinth, tonearm, cart, etc.. I plan to AB the 15 and 25 since they are dimensionally the same.

    measured the M2 platter at 12 15/16 , mat is the same as yours.

    didn't know you were into vinyl .... seems like you have some worthy projects there ...

    saw something I wanted in a thrift yesterday , but today is 50% day ...so hid it and went back at opening this AM ....got it. Then went looking around , found this pair of Rock Solids - British, but made in Japan ...unique metal support with rubber feet that will support the speaker in all 4 orientations and even mount to the wall .... darned little things sound fantastic ...wont displace any of my JBL's, but fun anyway
