With European consumer-electronics mega show IFA 2017 (Internationale Funkausstellung) just kicking off in Berlin, early news is just trickling out regarding the new turntable, but Technics put out a press release calling the new SP-10R the company’s “most premium analog, direct-drive turntable to date,” and claiming the lowest signal-to-noise ratio (92dB), and best rotational stability (0.015 per cent wow & flutter) of any turntable in the world.… Read the full article
