              Technics SL-M1:
       A fantastic Japanese "Golden Era" HiFi turntable!


Item Description

The Technics SL-M1, released in 1983 in Japan during the “Golden Era” of Japanese high-fidelity audio equipment, is a classic direct drive turntable with a stellar reputation for quality. It features a rock-solid quartz phase-locked speed control, and the whole unit is built with quality and precision. One of the innovative features of the SL-M1 is a proprietary dynamic damping mechanism, which improves in particular the low-frequency region by suppressing resonance and cross-modulation distortion in this region. With impressive technical specs, such as a wow and flutter of < 0.022% WRMS (JIS C5521), the SL-MA1 has achieved a solid reputation in the years following its release, and its great high-torque motor is mentioned by critics. This turntable is pretty rare, so one in good condition is a great find!

This turntable is in good working condition with some aging.

 ***This turntable has been checked and tested. Powers on, platter spins, sounds good and sold as-is. Has little white marks on the cover, light scuffs on exterior, and just needs a little TLC. (See Pictures)
