Technics SL-1000R Turntable Proves You Get What You Pay For

It may cost you, but the quality of the Technics SL-1000R Turntable is more than worth the investment. Based on the SP-10 platform, the SP-1000R adds in a tonearm and a plinth. The SP-10 is a coreless direct-drive motor with a two-sided rotor drive system. The rotor has stator coils on both sides for 12-pole and 18-pole drives. The SP-10 has an incredible 0.015 percent wow-and-flutter.

The platter consists of die-cast aluminum and rubber sandwiched in brass that weights only 7.9kg. The flywheel effect is stabilized by tungsten peripheral weights. The power supply is also ultra-low-noise and further prevents additional noise from being picked up by being separate from the turntable. The tonearm is a magnesium S-shaped unit that’s hand assembled in Japan. The plinth matches up to the look of the SP-1000R. The unit also includes a dust cover. In total, the turntable weighs in at just over 40kg.
