The SP-10R is expected to be released in summer of 2018.

Technics is aiming for the world's highest performing turntable, and their parent company, Panasonic, stated that the prototype has the following features, which can be viewed in detail on their site.

  1. A coreless direct-drive motor featuring a new structure
  2. Platter weight increased for more stable rotation
  3. Newly developed, ultra-low-noise power supply
