Technics SL-1000R - Updated and Upgraded Direct Drive

Technics SL-1000R - Updated and Upgraded Direct Drive

Say hello to a better way to listen to vinyl with the anticipated release of the Technics SL-1000R, the new flagship of Technics' decks with its own S-shaped tonearm and external power supply. 

We received a huge palleted delivery in Edinburgh yesterday, that required the combined manpower of three of us just to move into the store. Opening it up, we were in absolute awe at the sight we set our eyes on. This colossal turntable took a fair amount of time to properly unbox and get plugged in, but we finally got the results we were looking for. 

The SL-1000R is set to retail at £13,999, with the SP-10R at £7,999. See the review of our first impressions here.

NEW: Neat Acoustics Iota XPLORER Arrives

NEW: Neat Acoustics Iota XPLORER Arrives

Today we took delivery of the latest addition to Neat Acoustics “Iota” range, the Xplorer.  

Joining the current line up of the Iota, and award winning Iota Alpha, the Xplorer can be seen here to give you an idea of it’s relative size. Although in comparison to the other two models (which are tiny, by loudspeaker standards) it still has a very small footprint so is going to fit into almost any room, and at a 88dB sensitivity, should run easily from any half-decent sounding amplifier.

Wilson Audio and The Sounds Of Salt Lake City

The Sounds Of Salt Lake City

Our M.D. Struan Mackenzie took the welcome opportunity to visit the base of Wilson Audio speakers in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Not only did he experience the factory tour to witness for himself the care and precision taken during manufacture, but was invited into the Wilson family home to hear the the wonderful product serenade him and capture his heart. Struan has always been an admirer of Wilson speakers – after all Hi-Fi Corner/Homesound have been stockists for a quite while now, but this time the relationship was cemented. Read his letter from Utah and the see the photos of his memorable “Brief Encounter”.
