Come on Gunnar,things are not that bad!!!!!LOL. IF you go for another Technics you can always use an Emulator instead of the Kn5000 disk drive or go up to a KN8000 or KN7000 the drives in the KN7000 are still quite easy to find and they are made by "ALPS" but the Sony 920 will also fit.
Keep on bashing those keys. John.
