Profi Opinion

"The SL-100C is the entry into the world of Technics. The high-quality workmanship and the Audio-Technica system guarantee great listening pleasure at a very good price/performance ratio. "

Important notes:

No phono preamplifier integrated / SME headshell

The new coreless direct drive motor achieves a particularly regular and stable rotation of the platter

The technologies developed for the SL-1200 series and the high-end SL-1000R model are now also found in this motor drive unit – a central component of this turntable. The motor’s design is based on the SL-1200GR’s single-rotor, iron-core direct-drive motor to ensure high rotational accuracy and precise timing when scanning the record. For the inertial mass of the platter with a two-layer construction, unwanted resonances are prevented thanks to vibration-damping rubber on the entire underside. This also contributes significantly to precise, interference-free scanning of the records.

Precise scanning of the record

Typical of Technics, the tonearm has a statically balanced, S-shaped design. Like the SL-1200 series, the tonearm bearing is gimbaled and features a high-precision milled design that ensures high output sensitivity. The injection-molded aluminum chassis is tied to an ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer) plastic structure stiffened with fiberglass. The two-layer construction thus achieved provides stiffness and vibration damping at the highest level. The isolator consists of a spring and rubber for optimum vibration damping.

Equipped with a pickup system for the highest audio enjoyment

The included universal headshell of the SL-100C is equipped with a perfectly adjusted Audio-Technica AT-VM95C pickup system and is thus quickly ready for use. The tonearm height can be varied within a range of six millimeters to suit a variety of cartridges.

Automatic tonearm lift for minimal wear

As soon as the tone arm reaches the inner end of the record, the Auto-Lift raises the tone arm. This avoids unnecessary wear and tear on both your valuable records and the cartridge, and increases ease of use. By embedding the Auto-Lifter function in the tonearm base, shocks to the tonearm are avoided. This function can be switched off if required.

Simple design, aesthetic functionality

The SL-100C is characterized by minimalist design. At the same time, however, it offers the full range of operating options that characterize all Technics products. The attractive, puristic exterior thus also visually enriches the high music enjoyment.
