I wanted a RP1 for a long time. Finally got one a few months ago. Had many issues - warped platter, bad motor noise, ground hum, sticky cue lever, significant wow, inaccurate speed, etc.
The US distributer replaced the platter and sent oil that actually fixed the motor noise. However, after all that trouble and still so many issues, I returned it and got a U-Turn Orbit. The Orbit isn't perfect, but I had much better results for less money than the RP1.
