Hot on the heels of the new SL 1200 turntable, Technics has announced the 1500C with built in phonostage.

Technics today unveiled the new SL-1500C Premium Class Direct Drive Turntable System. Technic’s press release says the SL-1500C inherits the brand’s high-end sound quality concept and adds a host of original Technics technologies, such as a coreless direct drive motor and high-sensitivity tonearm. To simplify the playing of records, the built-in Phono EQ connects to a wide variety of devices. The SL-1500C also comes equipped with an Ortofon 2M Red phono cartridge.The SL-1500C is a complete turntable system designed for a wide range of users, even outside of strictly dedicated audio enthusiasts.

The platter on which a vinyl record is placed features a two-layer structure with deadening rubber on the entire back surface to eliminate unwanted resonance in the aluminium die-cast platter. The platter offers high rigidity and outstanding vibration-damping characteristics to prevent harmful vibration from being transmitted to the record and therefore delivers clear sound.

The SL-1500C has a built-in phono equalizer amp compatible with MM cartridges so it can be connected to an audio product that does not have phono input terminals. The dedicated power supply for the phono equalizer is isolated from the power supply for the motor and control circuitry to reduce the effect of noise. Furthermore, the shield structure suppresses the effect of external noise.

The supplied universal headshell is mounted with an Ortofon 2M RED cartridge.

When the tonearm reaches the end of the record, the auto lifter automatically raises the tonearm but this function can be turned off.
