Entry level 2-speed studio turntable with pitch control. Based on the SL1200 motor unit.
Optional plinth units where available in black (SH-15B3) or simulated rosewood veneer (SH-15B2), both of which where constructed from a heavy, acoustically dead, rubber material. (1979-88)
The SP-25 turntable offers a similar standard of excellence as the SP-10mkII professional units.
Features include total quartz locked pitch control within a 6% range from rated speeds, full cycle detection FG, extremely high torque, a large turntable platter with high moment of inertia, electronic braking system, integral rotor/platter motor construction and highly effective chassis damping.
Quartz locked control means virtually perfect speed accuracy. But in most quartz controlled turntables, this accurate speed control circuit is defeated when pitch changes are required.
Now, with the SP-25, pitch is variable continuously (analogically) under total quartz locked control.
