Technics SL-2000 used
The SL-2000 is designed for those who want direct drive performance at a moderate cost.
This beauty is equipped with Technic's famous brushless DC motor, which operates free from power line fluctuations and trouble causing heat and hum.
The absence of moving parts in the motor means better reliability and longer service life.
Completely accurate platter speed is guaranteed by a one chip IC servo control, a simple and compact unit equivalent to 78 electronic components.
The result of all this precision is wow and flutter of only 0.045% WRMS and rumble of -70dB DINB.
A precisely manufactured tonearm ensures minimum tracking error and optimum mass distribution for high compliance cartridges.
Clear and clean sound reproduction is assisted by the insulation fibre board and a newly developed insulator which effectively shields the motor and tonearm assembly from outside vibrations.
The heavy zinc diecast tonearm base also works to prevent vibration and subsonic resonances.
Other features of the SL-2000 include a fine-scale direct reading anti-skating device, an illuminated stroboscope, independent pitch controls variable by up to 10%, viscous damped cueing, aluminium diecast universal headshell, and detachable dust cover.
