An affordable model inspired by its SL-1500C.

Technics is releasing a new ‘entry level’ turntable, the SL-100C.

Its design is inspired by the company’s SL-1500C turntable – a model that is geared towards audiophile hi-fi afficionados.

The SL-100C features a coreless direct drive motor, S-shaped aluminium tonearm, two-layer platter with improved vibration-damping performance, high-rigidity cabinet and high-damping insulator for thorough shut-out of vibrations, Audio-Technica AT-VM95C cartridge, optional and tonearm auto-lift.

“The demand for this high-quality ‘plug’n’play’ turntable – having exceeded our own expectations – is still undiminished even to this day,” shares European Technics product manager Frank Balzuweit.

“However, there is still a strong appetite from the market to deliver a similarly attractive package at an even more affordable price.”

Priced at £799, the SL-100C will be available from June.
