Sony PS-5100


The Sony PS-5100 is a 2-Speed, belt-driven turntable fitted with an S shaped tonearm.

This model has many important features which contribute to the faithful reproduction of your records.

These include a statically balanced tonearm compatible with an induced magnet cartridge and an effective anti-skating compensator.

The platter is made of die-cast aluminium alloy, driven by a belt from a 4-pole hysteresis synchronous motor to help reduce wow and flutter.

Finally, the PS5100 is provided with an arm lifter to prevent stylus and record damage, and an auto-return and auto-reject mechanism permitting semi-automatic operation.


Type: belt drive

Motor: 4-pole hysteresis synchronous

Platter: aluminium alloy diecast
