Under the Covers of the Technics SL 10 Turntable….
by Nick Seiflow
The beautifully easy-to-operate Technics SL10 is anything but simple under the smooth lines of its aluminum skin.
What follows is not a manual for disassembly and maintenance, but more of a tribute to the Golden Age of turntable design.
Such a table as the SL-10 could never be made again. Sad, but based on the economies of scale whomsoever tried to build and market such a machine would quickly find themselves selling pencils on the street corner. To design this table from scratch alone would involve massive amounts of R&D. let alone actually making and marketing it.
