Realistic Lab 440 vs Technics SL 23
Turntables | Audiokarma Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums
I have a Technics SL 23 that works fine but a Realistic Lab 440 came up for sale locally at
a decent price. Would the Lab 440 be a step up from my SL 23, is it a better TT?

Realistic Lab 440 Headshell Set Screw/Thumbscrew
I have a Realistic Lab 440 turntable I'm trying to get up and running. When I bought it, it was missing the stylus and the set screw/thumbscrew for attaching the headshell to the tonearm. Everything is working mechanically, and I have a stylus on the way. So, now I just need one of the set scr...
Realistic LAB Series - are all created equal?
As I am looking at my first TT in many of years - maybe a Realistic might be a good entry level TT for my initial needs - then down the road - maybe upgrade. From what I can find - it looks like the LAB 400, 420, 440 might be a decent TT to start out with...Am I wrong or on base?Your inpu...
Thinking about replacing my turntable
I'm thinking about replacing my Pioneer PL-4, due to a few reasons. (the lack of proper azimuth and VTA adjustment, the occasional speed inconsistency, damage around the plastic plinth etc.) It actually sounds quite good, but I feel I could get better with something that allows for easier fine-tu...
