This Technics SL-1200M3D is in excellent operational condition and great cosmetic condition. I recently upgraded the internal tonearm wire with Cardas Litz. The included headshell has custom build cartridge leads with Cardas cable and Cardas cartridge clips on the cartridge side. Generic gold plated clips were used for the headshell side. I feel like upgrading the tonearm wires is a very big improvement to the original ones. An extra set of generic cartridge leads is also included. The RCA connectors were upgraded to nice, heavy duty connectors. It is my feeling that the original Technics cable is of good quality but the old, molded plastic connectors eventually go bad (and always at the wrong time). Also included is a Music Mat rubber platter mat that has wonderful dampening properties - to be used only for listening, not DJing. I will thrown in a DJ slip mat as well. The cartridge that is shown on it is NOT INCLUDED - only there for testing purposes.
