The new SL-100C turntable arrives with an Audio-Technica VM95C cartridge, featuring a conical stylus
The SL-100C includes an iron-coreless direct drive motor with motor control to, “…ensure absolutely smooth rotational stability,” said the company.
A solid two-layer chassis holds a S-shaped aluminium tonearm.
As the headlines suggests, this is a semi-automatic design so the tonearm lifts off at the end of the vinyl side. This feature can apparently be disabled.
You’ll also find lots of damping in the plinth.
The SL-100C will be available in Europe from June 2021, price is £799 from Amazon.

I must be missing something here. The SL-1500c is also £799 and semi-auto. What is the difference between these two turntables?

Good question, Tom. At a guess – and maybe you can help me out on this one – the 1500 has a built in phono amp and superior cartridge. Possibly better part quality? Not sure about the latter though.

Hello Tom, which others semi automatici turntables can compete against Sl 1500c or 100 c ? Thanks for your advices
