SL-1000R | Record Player
The SL-1000R is truly the epitome of analog music reproduction. It employs technologies that have been skilfully developed over the course of many years to achieve a paramount control over vibrations, interference and signal quality.
The motor that forms the heart of the SL-1000R is based on the coreless direct drive motor that was developed for the SL-1200G launched in 2016,and further enhanced. This improvement of the double coil twin rotor-type coreless direct drive motor reduces vibrations so much that they reach the minimum limit of measurement possible.
The turntable platter positions tungsten weights on the outer periphery of a 10-mm-thick brass weight and a deadening rubber is also attached to the rear surface. This forms a 3-layer construction that achieves high rigidity and excellent vibration damping characteristics.
The control unit is completely separated from the turntable to suppress noise almost perfectly. It features a unique technology that provides the voltage supply with minimal noise by a newly developed "unwanted noise reduction circuit". Rotation (rpm) can also be adjusted with two decimal precision (maximum ±16%) from the control unit.
To enable the tonearm to accurately track the record's rotation, Technics has traditionally used the static balance, S-type universal tonearm with a lightweight, high damping magnesium tonearm pipe. Highly skilled Japanese craftsmen handle all assembly and adjustment to achieve a high initial-motion sensitivity to precisely trace the grooves cut into the records.
