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.

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.
