A very fine turntable in excellent original condition *SOLD*
In the revolutionary direct drive motor first introduced by Technics, the separate turntable platter rested directly on the rotor.
On the SL-1300 the platter is part of the motor; in fact, it is the rotor.
The attractive base is no longer an inactive element used only to house the motor; the housing is the motor stator.
All together, this simplification of parts and hardware gives the benefits of extreme precision with utmost reliability and stylishly compact appearance.
The automatic mechanism because it is linked to this precise motor, is also exceptionally reliable.
And finally, in the SL-1300 all these characteristics can be achieved with economy.
