This new Technics SL-1000R turntable retails for $20,000

As vinyl sales continue to rise, the niche market is continually capitalizing on trends, filling in holes and satisfying the desires of ample audiophiles in the interim. Most recently, the Panasonic Corporation has catered to the high-end market with the release of their new Technics turntable, the SL-1000R.

Retailing at $20,000 — at least according to Trusted Reviews — the new turntable features what Panasonic is calling “the world’s best signal to noise ratio.” As a complete turntable system, the SL-100R features a S-shaped magnesium tonearm and SP-10R at its base which are both mounted to a matching plinth. Unlike the SP-10 and SP-10R — which mean audiophiles need to supply their own tonearm and mounting plinth — the new turntable is fully complete.

Panasonic’s new turntable points at an increasingly vast gap between the range of audio-tech preferences. Considering entry-level vinyl-lovers can purchase an Audio-Technica stereo turntable for $99.99, the new Technics turntable is likely just another signal that the gap between vinyl-listeners will only continue to widen. Hopefully, though, it leads to more widespread quality focus, too.
