Both my Lencos have been essentially plug-n-play (Lenco guru Jean Nantais did the actual upgrading). Yep, cost way more than $500. Point is, I was mainly trying to upgrade from a tired Dual -- like the OP -- and augment my "good" table, a VPI TNT Mkl II. Ended up replacing the TNT because the modded Lenco was clearly better-sounding in every way that's important to me. So I replaced IT with another Lenco (same modder) enabling me to mount two tonearms. And 10 years later, I have no desire to move on to anything else.
So yes, I agree with you that owning a Lenco can become something more than owning a Rega Planer, if you let it do that. I don't consider it any kind of commitment, though, just a very satisfying thing that I enjoy a lot for what it is and does.
