The top model in the Technics turntable series. Adopting a direct-drive system, developed nearly 50 years ago, this model is equipped with a newly-developed motor that has high rotational accuracy and a heavy turntable platter. Its outstanding performance lets you enjoy superb sound. Wow and flutter are audiophile-grade at only 0.015%. Listening enjoyment is enhanced by its high sound quality and high grade design using a great deal of solid metal. Analog vinyl sound, not achievable with digital sound sources, is faithfully reproduced. Compatibility with the renowned SP-10 series is secured, and it is also installable in your favorite handmade cabinet. This model has inherited and evolved Technics' unique audio culture. An audiophile design allowing installation of up to three tone arms.
