Over in a big space on the other side of the hall, Technics were showing their new Reference Class Direct Drive Turntable, the SP-10R. This has a brand new direct drive motor with an extra-heavy platter and it certainly looks the part.
After the excitement around their various SL-1200 models in 2016 and earlier this year, it will be great to hear what this new model offers. Unfortunately, it was only on static display, along with an amazing SL-1200 taken deconstruction showing all the parts that make it up.
They had an impressive all-Technics demo system running, but by this point the show was closing and they were starting to usher us out, so more tomorrow.
