Technics SL-5 Automatic Turntable (Second Hand)


The Technics SL-5 is a compact, record jacket size, fully automatic turntable. The unit features an integral platter/rotor direct-drive motor and a dynamically balanced, linear tracking tonearm with optoelectronic sensor and microcomputer control. The chassis is constructed using TNRC (Technics Non Resonant Compound).


Here's a review from HiFi Choice 1983:


"The wow and flutter of the Technics SL-5 was very low and the speeds accurate despite the absence of quartz lock. Shock was fairly well handled which is normal for a linear tracker, and it also behaved well on the feedback test. Well constructed and adjusted, the lid mounted tonearm possessed very good geometry and a low effective mass of around 3g."


This turntable has recently been refurbished and serviced, which included a clean, lubricating the unit, replacing the arm sled drive belt and repairing the audio leads. It is now in good working order and is perfect for those wanting to expand their vintage collection or those seeking an affordable entry-level turntable. Please note this turntable has the usual wear and tear on the exterior for a unit of its age, including scratches on the cover. The original box, packaging and accessories are not included. Comes with an EPS-24 stylus fitted.
