Technics SL-1500C review


What Hi-Fi? Awards 2023 winner. A beautifully made, fuss-free record player

Crisp, detailed and musical sound ; Excellent bass ; Cartridge included ; Electronic speed control

Nothing of note

If you’re after a great sounding but fuss-free record player around a grand, the SL-1500C is a great buy

Recent purchase of Technics SL 1500c following a recent return to vinyl. What an excellent piece of kit. Very simple layout but beautiful, sturdy and solid. Very easy to set up, though Technics should consider providing a video like to help novices set...
