Technics SP-10R

SP-10R use a new coreless direct-drive motor with a two-sided rotor drive system and stator coils on both sides of the rotor. The platter, like that of the SL-1200G, is a sandwich of brass, die-cast aluminium and rubber.

The platter weight is 7,85kg and the inertial mass is 970kg-cm2.

The SP-10R also features a new ultra-low-noise switching power supply in a discrete unit, separate from the turntable, to prevent cartridge hum.

As with the original ’70s SP-10 models, the core SP-10R doesn’t come with a plinth or tonearm, although Technics will also be selling a complete package that includes those items.

The Technics SP-10R will be available from early summer 2018.
