Quartz Controlled Direct-Drive Fully Automatic Turntable System with Linear tracking tonearm (1980-84)
With the SL-10, Technics continues to lead the industry in turntable innovation.

It has the same width and depth dimensions as an LP record jacket, yet within the compact package are an amazingly precise drive system.
A gimbal suspended linear tracking tonearm, a high grade moving coil cartridge, plus extensive control systems which permit even a complete novice to use the SL-10 without any problem.

Great sounding compact player, but limited cartridge choice these days.

Solid, clean sounding and easy to use player. Surprisingly heavy too.
I have very springy floors and it's mounted on a not very stable media tower and I have a heavy footed dancing kid... and it doesn't skip at ALL.

Found at a thrift shop for $8. Complete with the Technics MC310.
The reason for a lower rating is due to the difficulty of repair.
Unlike the SL-7 with the same specs but without a few buttons the SL10 has all its control buttons in the lid.
Problems arise when trying to re-route the numerous wires through the lid and through the hinge area after repairs.
Used it for a while but the wiring got intermittent.
Sold it for $125 and kept the Technics MC310
