It features the classic features of the brand’s legendary turntables: coreless direct drive motor and high-precision S-shaped aluminum arm.
“Although the enormous success of the SL-1500C and its demand has exceeded our expectations, we continue to receive requests challenging us to introduce quality products at affordable prices,” says Frank Balzuweit, Product Manager at Technics Europe. Faced with this situation, the brand valued different options to reduce the qualities of the SL-1500C without significantly compromising them. Thus was born the SL-100C.
The Technics SL-100C turntable comes equipped with an original capsule, the Audio Technica VM95C, which manages to satisfy the demands of true music lovers. This conical capsule of the VM95C ensures highly accurate tracking and retrieval of musical information recorded on vinyl. The specifications of the Audio Technica VM95C ensure wide compatibility with the typical Phono MM inputs of hi-fi amplifiers.
With this new model, Technics continues to bet on the quality of its coreless direct drive motor, ensuring great stability and smooth rotation, a solid two-layer chassis to avoid extreme vibrations and an aluminum S-shaped arm, capable to capture the subtlest nuances. It also includes an automatic elevation of the arm at the end of each face of the disc, avoiding unnecessary wear of the capsule (this function can be deactivated).
Lovers of vinyl and Technics will find this new turntable a first class option. Some of the salient features of the SL-100C are the gearless coreless direct drive motor for stable rotation and powerful torque, and the highly sensitive and robust arm, capable of accurately reading the signal stored in the grooves of the vinyl. This is a turntable with a two-layer structure to offer improved performance by damping vibrations.
It also features a robust cabinet and high-damping isolator to eliminate vibrations, even in tough conditions. As we say, the capsule is signed by Audio Technica (their model AT-VM95C) and facilitates quick setup and playback of vinyl.
