Technics SL-5 Direct-Drive Fully-Automatic Turntable System (1982-1983) with linear tracking tonearm.

The Technics SL-5 is a compact, record jacket size, fully automatic turntable.

The unit features an integral platter/rotor direct-drive motor and a dynamically balanced, linear tracking tonearm with optoelectronic sensor and microcomputer control.

The chassis is constructed using TNRC (Technics Non Resonant Compound).

Awesome sounding, just put on a record and press play!

Includes all cables and a nice Technics P228 cartridge (made by Audio Technica) with new old stock OEM Signet HiTech 101 stylus.

Very good physical condition. A few rough-ups on the silver paint, but only noticeable upon close inspection. Typical age-related scratches on dust cover, lid and body.
