Technics SL-110 Turntable + SME 3009 MK3 tonearm
Technics SL-110 + SME 3009 MK3
The SL-110 turntable features an ultra-large diameter platter weighing 2kg and having high inertial moment. The platter is dynamically balanced and around the rim it has strobo marks to check for speed. The motor is of the direct drive type and has no wow or flutter caused by a transmission mechanism. There is no vibration because the motor has no high speed rotation mechanism and rumble is extremely low.
Because the motor in the SL-110 includes an electronic commutator, starting is perfectly accurate. There is no speed instability or brush deterioration as is often noted in brush commutators, no pulse noise and no sound caused by rubbing brushes. Speed is stabilised electronically. Interestingly the motor consumes less than 1/100th that of a conventional AC motor.
