Back in the day, Technics was the king of audiophile gear and their turntable that sat on the throne was the SP-10. To pay homage to this vintage superstar Technics is releasing the Technics SP-10R ($TBA). It features a burly 7-kilogram platter made from brass and a power supply housed in a separate unit to minimize sonic interference from vibrations. To create the smoothest play it will utilize a coreless direct drive in order to eliminate cogging. Add all of this together and you get a turntable with a flutter rate below .15 percent. When compared to other audiophile turntables which hit .25 percent the improvement in sound quality will be noticeable. Expected to release in the summer of 2018 pricing details are still pending.
