Product Description

Line Circle
Conventional analogue turntables have problems with degradation in sound quality caused by factors such as minute speed vibration during rotation and rotation irregularity called "cogging." In the SL-1200G, the use of a newly developed coreless direct-drive motor with no iron core eliminates cogging. Also, the twin-rotor construction reduces the bearing load while maintaining high torque and also reduces minute vibration during rotation.

Technics SL-1200G Grand Class Turntable

Conventional analogue turntables often suffer from sound quality degradation due to issues like speed vibration and rotation irregularity known as "cogging." In the SL-1200G, these problems are addressed through innovative design elements such as a coreless direct-drive motor and twin-rotor construction, resulting in precise reproduction of the intricate details found on analogue records.

The turntable boasts advanced motor control technology derived from Blu-ray devices, ensuring high-starting torque and stable speeds. Its three-layered construction, featuring a brass and aluminum die-cast platter with deadening rubber, enhances rigidity and vibration damping, surpassing industry standards for rotational stability.

Each SL-1200G undergoes meticulous balance adjustment at the factory, minimizing excess vibration and noise during rotation for optimal sound quality. The high-sensitivity tonearm, crafted from lightweight magnesium with precision bearings, further enhances performance, while the four-layered cabinet construction provides both rigidity and a premium finish.

Additionally, the turntable incorporates high-quality terminals with brass-milled, gold-plated connectors and metal shielding to prevent sound degradation and minimize external noise interference, ensuring a superior listening experience.
