Revolutionary Delta Sigma Drive: Redefining Direct-Drive Turntables
In 1970, Technics pioneered direct-drive turntable technology, and the Tradition Continues with the Technics SL-1200GR2 Turntable. This iconic technology resolved issues like poor signal-to-noise ratios and wow and flutter, making direct-drive turntables a radio station favorite due to their rapid start capabilities and superb sound quality. In 2016, Technics introduced the coreless direct-drive motor, adopted by most of their turntables. Now, meet the Delta Sigma Drive, aimed at eradicating those subtle vibrations that can cloud your listening experience.
Cutting-Edge Motor Technology: Precision with PWM Control
The latest motor in the Technics SL-1200GR2 employs Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) for unparalleled speed accuracy control. Inspired by Technics' Class D digital amplifiers, this motor delivers low distortion and precise output. The ΔΣ-Drive utilizes delta-sigma conversion techniques to eliminate minor speed inaccuracies and motor vibrations, resulting in a more immersive and spatial sound experience.
Silent Power Supply: Zero Interference, Maximum Performance
Operating above 100kHz, the high-frequency switching power supply in the Technics SL-1200GR2 Turntable operates far beyond the audio range, effectively preventing interference. This advanced power supply eliminates the need for bulky transformers, ensuring a hum-free and mechanically vibration-free listening environment. Additionally, the noise-canceling circuit, combining a noise detection device with an error correction amplifier, effectively eliminates any output noise.
Two-Layer Platter for Ultimate Rigidity and Stability
The platter of the Technics SL-1200GR2 Turntable boasts a two-layer construction that enhances rigidity and minimizes resonance. Damped with rubber on the rear surface and featuring additional strengthening ribs, this platter offers increased surface contact with the rubber. Weighing 0.8kg more at 2.5kg, it effectively eradicates speed variations and resonance for superior playback stability.
Precision Tonearm: Tracking Accuracy at Its Best
The low mass tonearm of the Technics SL-1200GR2 Turntable ensures precise tracking, reducing the force required for arm movement. A cut-processed housing with high-precision bearings minimizes friction. The S-shaped tonearm design, featuring a lightweight aluminum pipe, guarantees exceptional initial motion sensitivity of only 5mg. A headshell is included, giving you the freedom to choose your preferred cartridge.
Exceptional Build Quality and Components
The body of the Technics SL-1200GR2 Turntable employs a two-layer construction that unifies BMC and aluminum chassis. Special silicone rubber feet absorb external vibrations to prevent feedback. Gold-plated RCA terminals ensure high-quality connections. Shielded socket enclosures keep unwanted noise at bay, and a headshell is provided, compatible with most cartridge types. Elevate your vinyl listening experience with the pinnacle of turntable technology.
