Garrard SL 55


The Garrard SL 55 is fitted with a steel platter and a Garrard Synchro Lab motor.

The Synchro lab motor uses induction principles to attain running speed; at that speed a magnetic element then locks the rotor so that it runs synchronously with the frequency of the power supply.

The motor can be supplied to run on 110/130 volts only or for 110/130 and 220/250 volts AC.

The latter version is fitted with a voltage changeover block attached to the motor.


Finish: polychromatic dark green and black

Type: automatic record changer

Platter: 267mm

Speeds: 16.66, 33.33, 45 and 78rpm

Motor: Synchronous
