    Hi John, Happy new year !

    The SP10R feature in the November edition of Hifi Choice showed price as €10,000 Euros - just shy of £9K.

    Cant remember if it mentioned that including plinth and arm.

    If £9K includes arm and plinth then thats not too bad really all things considered for what should be a genuine high end audiophile turntable, not sure though, someone may know / confirm. Why do I think £9k wouldnt be for the 'full package' ?

    Hi Rob. A very Happy New Year as well.

    The 1000-R is to be offered as a complete package with magnesium tonearm and plinth as standard, not to be confused with the SP 10-R motor unit. That is how I understand it from the Technics press release at the CES.

    It's probably wishful thinking on my part about the pricing, although I'm guessing around the 8-9,000 UK Pounds. If it is around that price area I will be tempted for sure.
    Record player, CD spinner and speakers for listening.

    Hmm, they’ve got a bit muddled there. According to them, “The other turntable introduced today by Panasonic is the Technics SL-1000R. This model is a step below the SP-10R...”

    Er, no it isn’t. It’s an SP-10R in a dedicated plinth with an arm!

    No, not yet. But frankly, I doubt it’ll be “a bit average”!

    I agree, highly unlikely.

    Hopefully someone here will get a listen to one in the not to distant and give us the beans.
