Do you dislike belt-drive turntables?

No not at all, there are many amazing belt-drive turntables and my current working reference is a Luxman PD-350 belt-drive turntable!

I really enjoy the simplicity of the Rega Planar machines and I love decks like the PL-514, SL-23 and KD-2055, just to name a few. What I don’t like is bad turntables, no matter how their platters are driven. This especially extends to overpriced underperformers and unfortunately, most of those are belt driven, many from the famous brands you’d be familiar with!
