SL-100C and SL-1210MK7 in Silver

Technics Introduces two new Turntables

Technics has announced the new affordable plug'n'play turntable "SL-100C" and a new silver version of the SL-1210MK7.

The new SL-100C combines many of the classic features found in a Technics turntable, such as the iron-coreless direct-drive motor, a precise motor control, a solid two-layer chassis and the S-shaped aluminum tonearm. It aims to round off the product range at the lower end.

"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," said Frank Balzuweit of Technics Europe. "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."

As a result, the new SL-100C is equipped with an integrated pickup system, the Audio Technica VM95C, whose conical stylus is said to provide for a precise scanning of records. The technological design of the VM95C ensures extensive compatibility with typical phono MM inputs of hi-fi amplifiers. In addition, the SL-100C features an automatic tonearm lift that raises the tonearm at the end of a record. This feature can also be disabled if desired.

The SL-100C will be available starting in June 2021* at a price of about 900 Euros*. Technics also announced a new silver version of the SL-1210MK7 turntable, which will also have a price of around 900 Euros* and will be available in May* already.
