1200 series of record player which supports the SP board.

The rotary system mechanisms adopted DD (direct drive) mode, the motor rotating unit is integrated with the turntable, the fixed part has adopted the DD motor unique structure that integrally with the cabinet. Also, in order to detect all around the exact number of rotation by the entire circumference integrating FG, and has a possible high-precision signal detection, to achieve the starting torque of the high rotational accuracy and high power.
In addition, the stop mechanism is adopted pure electronic brake, take quick brake, making it the structure is released at the same time stopped.

It has adopted the Quartz synthesizer system, we have achieved a combined precise rotation with the entire circumference detection FG of DD motors and high signal detection accuracy.
In addition, we multiplied the quartz lock to pitch control of a continuous variable, it can be used at a pitch of preference by fine-tuning. The pitch control slider is center click is omitted, we have to allow for smooth operation.

Has adopted a three-layer structure cabinet as anti-vibration measures against direct sound pressure or external vibration of speakers, high rigidity aluminum die-casting at the top, of the integrally molded internal to TNRC (Technics Non-Resonance Compound), and special heavyweight rubber at the bottom By adopting the, reducing vibration. In addition, the turntable back and has improved vibration resistance by pasting the deadening rubber.
Also, reducing the influence of vibration from the outside by a large insulator employing a double spring.

The tone arm has adopted the precision aluminum die-casting, we have to reduce the impact of external vibration.
Moreover, adopted gimbal suspension to the bearing structure, it is possible to clarify to a point where the vertical rotation axis and the horizontal rotation axis center of rotation intersect, it has won the same excellent initial sensitivity in all directions .

Arm height adjustment mechanism with locking mechanism equipped with, I can reduce the vertical tracking error.

It supports 3 speed of 33 1 / 3,45,78rpm, playback of SP board is also available.

The wiring material from the cartridge output section to the amplifier input I have adopted the OFC wire.

It is equipped with a pop-up stylus illumination, you can illuminate the needle tip in a dark room.

Pin code has become removable.
