Unboxing the Technics SL-1000R

Technics SL1000R

Some months ago we got to play with the Technics SL-1000R direct drive turntable.

We first heard these on-wall speakers at the DALI Launch in London, and could hardly believe our ears! – a pair of on-wall loudspeakers that sound like a good pair of floor-standing speakers.
