Technics SL-1500C Turntable review


The first time Technics died, it was a long and unnecessarily drawn-out affair. Parent company Panasonic inexplicably lost patience and faith with the brand around the turn of the century (despite it being one of the few true icons of consumer...

Bomb-proof build quality Simple to set up and use Remarkable clarity

Still marginally expensive Not that subtle

Brilliant piece of kit


A great turntable, beautiful digital-esque sound with both clarity and warmth. The stylus arm control to raise and lift is fragile and feels a bit cheap when compared to the rest of the first class, well built and assembled turntable.

Fantastic sound easy to set up

Technics is Back. Quality Product and Sound


Many years ago I purchased a Technics Turntable, but with the decline in Vinyl I, it went into a Skip at the Local Refuse Site. Big mistake. Having just purchased a Denon 3500H from Richer Sounds, I wanted to get the best from the system with TV and...
