I loved the Allnic H-1202. Its performance was exemplary whether set to MC or MM. Either setting brought about immensely enjoyable, prolonged listening sessions. The H-1202 handled every recording I played with authority, richness and musicality — all layered upon backgrounds as dark and deep as a clear, starless night sky. With every LP I found myself smiling and taking a deep breath, reveling in just how good and satisfying vinyl could sound.
