Equipped with the same smooth, silent auto-return tonearm control mechanism and output muting circuit as the SL-1300, the semi-automatic SL-1400 meets most audiophiles needs.
Automatic output muting cuts off irritating noise caused when the stylus is set down or lifted off the disc and is most effective when the tonearm is being manually operated with the cueing lever.
