Technics SL-1500C Turntable review

Bomb-proof build quality Simple to set up and use Remarkable clarity

Still marginally expensive Not that subtle

Built like a tank. Sounds amazing


Debated about buying the sl 1500 but very pleased I did. Excellent sound and great built quality, easy setup. Only slight gripe, the auto arm lift can be a bit previous and lift before record has fully finished so I would advise switching this off.

Fantastic sound easy to set up

Excellent Sound And Build Quality


I ordered this based on reviews I had read which rated the Technics very highly. The only thing I had reservations on was most of the photos make the record player's styling look a bit dull. The Technics arrived the following day (excellent Service)...
