The iconic 1970s turntable gets a revamp.
Panasonic is releasing a new version of its legendary Technics SP-10, reports What Hi-Fi.
Unveiled at the IFA in Berlin, the Reference Class SP-10R, which has been called the “most premium turntable ever” by Panasonic, goes on sale next summer.
SP-10R features a 7kg brass, rubber and aluminium platter, a coreless direct drive motor, and power supply separated from the platter to further minimize noise and vibration.
The news follows the recent revamp of Technics’ iconic SL-1200 turntables, which were released in April 2017.
