Technics Overview

Technics is pleased to announce the launch of the new SL-100C Direct Drive Turntable. Featuring the iconic characteristics of Technics turntables, such as the iron-coreless direct drive motor and a high-precision S-shaped aluminium tonearm, it comes in at an even more affordable price point than its award-winning sibling, the SL-1500C.

“The huge success of the SL-1500C, offering a fully featured package for the dedicated hi-fi enthusiast, with all the core Technics turntable technologies, has shown we have hit the mark within a popular and competitive turntable class,” says European Technics product manager Frank Balzuweit. “The demand for this high-quality ‘plug’n’play’ turntable – having exceeded our own expectations – is still undiminished even to this day. However, there is still a strong appetite from the market to deliver a similarly attractive package at an even more affordable price.”

The SL-100C will be priced at £799 and is set to be on sale this July in Europe.
