Technics SL-5200


The Technics SL-5200 features a high performance circuit and full-cycle detection FG for quartz phase-locked control of integral structure superior in rotational characteristics.

The Double-TNRC vibration damping construction is a newly developed material high in damping and superior in attenuation characteristics.

A low-mass gimbal bearing tonearm is used, with an arm friction of 7mg and muting circuit.

Equipped with a stylus illuminator, the SL5200 facilitates selection of music even in a dark place.

For greater convenience, the tonearm is raised and lowered softly be a viscous damped cueing lever and returns to the armrest automatically.
