Technics SL-1500

The Technics SL-1500 comprises of an ingenious reworking of physical geometry in the basic direct-drive design concept which has greatly simplified mechanical construction without any sacrifice in performance specifications.

The result is a turntable that retains full DD performance capability, concentrates it in a sleekly styled, low silhouette compact and makes it available at an affordable price.

We think of it as the direct-drive turntable for people who can’t afford direct-drive.

In earlier Technics configurations, the platter rested in the motor.

In the SL-1500, the rotor is integrated directly into the platter and together they form the only moving part in this ingeniously uncomplicated system.

Greater precision and simpler construction are simultaneously achieved internally.

Additionally, the motor rotor is countersunk into the handsome aluminium diecast baseplate and control panel surface to create a good-looking, low profile effect.
