Technics SL-1300 MK2 Professional Turntable

Very interesting configuration combining the best of several famous Technics models. Motor and arm - SL1200, Quartz control - SP-15, Mechanical full auto - SL-1300 Mk1. More scientific instrument than vinyl player, a monument to Matsushita engineers at their peak.

Perfectly preserved and virtually unused, this one has been serviced and restored to as new condition. Many of these were destroyed due to a weak unobtainable part in the lift mechanism, this one has been correctly updated.

Perfect player for broadcasting or pro archival/sampling etc. A high end cartridge would not be wasted on this machine. Hard to fault as is with the installed Ortofon 2M Red.

0.002% speed accuracy adjustable in repeatable .1% steps to +-10%
73dB Noise and rumble
Technics arm bearing friction is .007 grams both directions
Vernier scale VTA adjustment.
