Quartz Direct-Drive Fully-Automatic Turntable (1980-1982)
As soon as you see and operate the KD-5100, you will instantly recognise it as a minor masterpiece in turntable design.
It takes only the lightest finger pressure on a touch key to cue the tonearm into its smooth, firm glide in the direction commanded.
In fact, Kenwood's microprocessor electronic brain and digital optical sensor system are responsible for every precision movement the slender, straight tonearm makes.
But computer-guided control is by no means the only merit of the KD-5010, there's the newly designed carbon-fibre headshell: one of the most successful of its kind in terms of freedom from resonance problems and superb tracking ability.
