Timestep - Technics SL-1200-1210 EVO gr

We have garnered quite a reputation for our intelligent (and fully sanctioned) modifications of various iconic Technics turntables. Now, designer Dave Cawley turns his attention to the SL-1200 GR deck and comes up with yet more cannily-crafted advancements in the form of the new Timestep EVO gr.

The measurements we achieved simply stunned us and have since been backed up by HiFi World.
It approaches the legendary SP-10 MKIII (the MKIII is way better than the MKII).


Arms & Cartridges:

The Standard Arm is a a bit of a let down.  We now recommend the Timestep Technocrat Tonearm TE303 with special weight and featuring  a tapered aluminium  armtube.

We suggest the Denon DL-110 high output moving coil cartridge that can be used with an ordinary Moving Magnet (MM) input. 


Arm plate:

The original arm plate has been replaced by new anodised plates available in silver or black.  The correct VTA will be obtainable whatever thickness of mat is fitted.  They have taken a long time to design and represent the ultimate Technics arm plate, expensive, yes!  but you only get what you pay for! 


Power supply:

As for the power supply, the EVO gr replaces the SL-1200GR's internal switch mode with an external linear PSU designed by Timestep. While the SL-1200GR  power supply is very quiet a number of reviews have mentioned a ‘haze’, which our modified supply removes. Constructed with supreme attention to detail, the Timestep power supply’s cable exits the SL-1200 gr via a custom-made adapter plate;  the PSU connectors are both gold-plated Neutrik.
