Re: over engineered

That’s a great example that adds quite a bit to this discussion. When I bought my Technics SLD3 turntable in 1980 for around &200 I was really puzzled why anyone would spend $800 for a Technics SL1200 when records would not sound any better But the Wikipedia has a lot of information on the SL1200 and benefits of over engineering for this particular case and commercial success
