Panasonic introduces technics hi-fi audio

OSAKA (Japan), September 5, 2015

Panasonic Corporation has unveiled a direct drive analog turntable prototype equipped with a newly developed direct drive motor at the IFA 20152 trade fair in Berlin.

The event will run till September 9. Panasonic is accelerating further development of this technology with a view to market launch in 2016 under the Technics hi-fi audio brand.

In conventional analog turntables, sound quality degradation caused by tiny vibrations of the motor and rotational speed fluctuations has been a major challenge, said the company in a statement.

To overcome this challenge and assure smooth, highly-stable rotation, Panasonic has developed a new direct drive motor and redesigned high-precision motor control technology, it stated.

This makes it possible to reproduce the warm sound and subtle nuances of musical expression engraved in the analog record grooves, the statement added.

Panasonic said the demand for analog turntables had been on the rise in recent years as music aficionados once again find the value in the sound of analog records, mainly in the North American, European and Japanese markets.

Panasonic put on sale the world’s first direct drive analog turntable6 in 1970 under the Technics brand.

This was followed by the SL-1200 series7, which earned the brand critical acclaim for its outstanding sound quality and reliability, not only from audiophiles, but also dance and music clubs, studios, broadcasters and other commercial users around the globe, the statement added.-TradeArabia News Service
