The latest from Technics' triumphant return to turntable stardom is the versatile SL-1500C! This direct-drive table is extremely robust and well-built, and comes all set with a cartridge! Furthermore, it touts a very impressive onboard phonostage, so you have the option of connecting it directly to amps or powered speakers without the added fuss of a separate box and cables. And if that isn't enough, it also has auto-lift, so at the end of the record the needle will lift from the groove on it's own, keeping unnecessary wear and tear low and saving you from the thump thump thump in the night! We are very excited to have it and think it will make many a happy home!
