Lovely Technics SL-23 Turntable for Sale

Lovely Technics SL-23 Turntable for Sale

Hi folks, check out this lovely Technics SL-23 belt-drive turntable for sale, fully serviced and ready to go.

Yes, the Technics SL-23 belt-drive deck is one of the best of the affordable belt-drive decks from the golden era. In fact, people love these decks so much that the SL-23 has a near-perfect 5-star rating on Vinyl Engine.


The SL-23’s reputation is well-deserved in terms of construction, performance and long-term reliability. Check out my article on the deck, if you are interested. More images and details at my For Sale page.

This particular Technics SL-23 is a winner, freshly serviced, detailed and ready to play vinyl. This is a proper Liquid Audio service of course, including:

  • New premium rubber drive belt (not eBay rubbish)
  • New Japanese stylus
  • Clean and detail
  • Mechanical and electronic service
  • Spindle bearing service
  • Motor service
  • New & upgraded RCA cable
  • Factory original (and excellent) Technics cartridge

All work has been completed to factory standards and the deck performs like new.

You’re looking at just $495 for this little gem, ready to go, with nothing to spend. Remember, she’s just received $300 worth of work and parts and comes with a 3-month warranty. This isn’t like buying a rundown SL-23 off eBay or Gumtree.

If you compare what around $500 gets you new, well it’s all just rubbish. This is a proper Japanese hi-fi turntable from one of the great manufacturers. She plays a record beautifully and there is literally nothing to spend until your next stylus.

This lovely deck is an orphan and very much in need of a caring new owner. For more details, visit the Store.

As a kid, I cherished my Tandy 200-in-1 electronics project lab and Dick Smith Funway electronics kits. I had my own little hi-fi at 16. Later, I started Liquid Audio, a specialist hi-fi equipment repair business. Keeping classic hi-fi gear alive and well is what we do. Our mission: to deliver TLC for classic Japanese, American and European hi-fi stereo equipment. In my spare time, I cook, ride, listen to music and research interesting topics.

    I have one of these and need the drive belt. Where can I find it?

      Hi Jono, I have them but I need the deck here for service, I don’t sell parts on their own. There are two sizes, they changed during production and the belt needed depends on the serial number.
