(Please read entire ad description or call for pricing variables.) This new breakthrough design is our latest interpretation for Technics Sp10Mk2 direct drives featuring a proprietary precision machined Copper Gunmetal/Aerospace aluminum main platter and proprietary "Quiet Core" active bearing drain technology for absolute dead silent inky black backgrounds. This new platter design allows for greater focus, resolution and even lower overall noise floor. The next generation design as a whole, is highly resolving and spot on in the areas of dynamics and neutrality, narrowing the gap even yet further between the Mk2 and Mk3 Sp10 offerings. Pricing ranges from $7985 - $10,895 depending upon options. Pictured above in Porsche Carbon Black (Reed 3P tonearm not included). Design features directly coupled mass loaded Panzerholz plinth with zero internal voids and integral active Quiet Core shielded bearing drain technology. Constrained layer damped plinth features four levels of overlaying substratum consisting of German engineered Panzerholz, select low density woods in conjunction with anti magnetic metals permanently bonded and sealed together using synthetic material specific permanent bonding agents. Essentially, this aids in forming a non-resonant yet stable platform which has the ability to sustain decades of consistent use. Active isolation technology is employed through the use of Stillpoints patented vibration devices which enables even greater levels of focus, air and space around instruments and vocals within the soundstage. This isolation technology is further employed internally, at the core, to further lower unwanted residual bearing vibrations. Micro polish and oil re-lubrication service provided on the main bearing assembly. Technics factory speed control and logic circuits are located in a dedicated outboard shielded and damped aluminum chassis. A fully shielded control cable connects the logic controller to the separately housed motor and bearing assembly. The Technics SH-10E power supply (not shown) is housed in the factory chassis and features a comprehensive rebuild with full one year warranty provided against defects. The turntable, bearing, motor and logic/control boards are all grounded from a common and defeatable ground located at the rear of the outboard controller chassis. In the event one should wish to revert the Technics Sp10Mk2 or Mk3 turntable back to the integrated factory chassis, this is entirely possible. Work performed by our certified electronics technician with 35+ years experience includes the following: Phase tracking timing bench test, Frequency and reference oscillator motor level calibration, Master Clock Crystal and axillary main board inspection, Power supply voltage and rails adjusted and scope checked, Removal of factory brake mechanism (reversible) and Technics SH-10E factory power supply fully rebuilt and bench tested. Packages are available which include a tonearm or tonearm/cartridge combination setup prior to delivery. Or, if you have a preferred tonearm and cartridge you would like to use, we can mount them for you prior to delivery. (9" and 12" tonearms, single and double arm configurations optional.)
