SL-1210GAE Limited Edition | Record Player | Preorder
The SL-1210GAE is wholly made in japan by skilled artisans’ hands, with a significant level hand-made processes to ensure the highest quality possible. The top panel features a special badge, inscribed with the unique serial number to signify that it is a 55th anniversary model.
The turntable features a three-layered construction with a rigidity combined brass top-plate, an aluminum die cast core platter and a solid rubber coating covering its entire rear surface to eliminate unwanted resonance, thereby achieving overall superior rigidity and vibration damping. This delivers smooth rational stability and high inertial mass surpassing the SP-10MK2 (The direct-drive turntable standard used by broadcast stations worldwide), as well as having more than twice the inertial mass of the SL-1200MK5.
The tonearm employs lightweight magnesium which has a damping effect, with cold drawing improving the characteristics of the material and achieving the high precision required. In addition, high initial-motion sensitivity is attained by employing the traditional Technics gimbal suspension construction with the horizontal rotation axis and the vertical rotation axis intersecting at a single central point, as well as high-precision bearings using a cut-processed housing.
