Technics has announced the reissue of the SP-10, a turntable for audiophiles that has been described as the "most premium turntable ever".

Announced at IFA 2017, the new turntable is officially called the Reference Class SP-10R and will look to provide an update to what was initially the first direct-drive turntable for professionals.

By integrating Technics’ analogue and digital expertise, the SP-10R is said to have the world’s best rotational stability due to the brass, rubber and aluminium platter. It has an upgraded coreless direct-drive motor, even more powerful than that of the SL-1200GR, and also features a power supply that is actually disconnected from the platter, allowing for reduced noise and vibration.

News of the updated SP-10R follows the resurgence of Technics with its Technics SL-1200G, the limited edition SL-1200GAE and the more affordable SL-1200GR. No price for the SP-10R has been announced at this time, but it’s safe to say it might be out of the price-range for the general consumer.
