Coreless Direct Drive Motor Achieving Stable Rotation

Coreless Direct Drive Motor Achieving Stable Rotation
The direct drive system uses a slow-turning motor to directly drive the platter. This system has various advantages. Firstly, it offers high performance through accurate rotation and powerful torque, it also does not require parts to be replaced. It also maintains high reliability over a long period of time. For the SL-1200M7L, a new coreless direct drive motor was developed - this motor employs a coreless stator. The removal of the core (iron core) from the stator, eliminates the root cause of cogging. Also the magnetic force of the rotor magnets was improved to the highest possible level, optimising the gap between the coreless stator and rotor magnets; thus achieving high-torque-performance equalling that of the SL-1200MK5. Enjoy the smooth rotation and power of the torque. That enables faithful sound reproduction from the groove of a record.

Diverse New Functions Adapt to Various Playing Styles

Torque / Brake Speed Adjustment
Experience the newest digital motor control technology. This has been developed through Blu-ray disc and is applied to allow the torque and brake speed to be adjusted individually in four steps.

The Pitch Control Function
The pitch control function allows fine adjustment of the rotation speed within ±8% / ±16%. It does this through digital control, from positional detection of the slider to rotational control of the motor. This eliminates the unnecessary DA conversion and greatly improves tracking performance to achieve an accurate and stable pitch adjustment.

Reverse Play Function
The reverse play function, brings forth new possibilities of creative performance. Supporting speed rotation of 78 rpm, in addition to 33-1/3 rpm and 45 rpm rotation speed.
*The torque / brake speed adjustment, rotation speed switch, and reverse play can be adjusted by switches on the main unit.

High Sensitive Tonearm

High Sensitive Tonearm
The tonearm, which has continued to support the leading edge of the DJ scene for many years, inherits the highly reliable static-balance universal S-shape tonearm. Using high-precision bearings, it achieves a higher initial-motion sensitivity than the SL-1200M7L. This accurately tracks the groove on the phonorecord to assure excellent tracking performance with minimum stylus jumping even in harsh playing conditions such as scratching.

Stylus Illuminator Featuring a High-brightness and Long-life White LED

Stylus Illuminator Featuring a High-brightness and Long-life White LED
The stylus illuminator features a new push-type structure for intuitive operation, and employs a highbrightness and long-life white LED. The illumination area and intensity were reviewed to provide improved visibility of the stylus tip even in a dark environment.

High-rigidity Cabinet and High-damping Insulator

High-rigidity Cabinet and High-damping Insulator
The chassis, an essential part for reducing external vibrations, inherits the audio quality enhancement technology fostered through the development of high-end turntables. The aluminium die-cast chassis is rigidly integrated with a special material consisting of ABS mixed with glass fibre to achieve a two-layer construction. The combination of this special high-rigidity material and a metal chassis raised the rigidity and vibration-damping performance to higher levels, realising a robust cabinet for beautiful sound reproduction. The insulator is comprised of spring and rubber to provide optimal frequency characteristics. This not only assures high sound quality and superb howling resistance, but also effectively shuts out external vibrations under high sound level conditions.
