Technics, a division of Japanese brand Panasonic which specializes in audio equipment, is unveiling a new range of turntable systems that aim to take advantage of direct drive turntable technology.
The brand new SP-10R turntable system comes equipped with a twin rotor coreless direct-drive motor that reduces the incidence of speed irregularity to a miniscule 0.015 percent or less. The system features rugged bearings that work to reduce noise, ultimately achieving an industry-leading signal to noise ratio. Elsewhere, the SL-1000R comes with additional features in the form of a handcrafted tonearm setup.
By taking advantage of the latest noise reduction and audio precision technologies, the new Technics turntable systems aim to bring together the old-world charm of vinyl turntables with futuristic audio engineering technologies for a comprehensive vinyl-listening experience.
