Welcome to our Technics Blackout Package. Add or leave any options according to your requirements.
Please note, price is per turntable, if you require a pair customising, please add 2 to the basket.
TECHNICS FULL SERVICE
Our service includes fully stripping down the entire turntable and all components, cleaned, polished, re-lubricated and calibrated back to factory spec. This includes brand new pitch slider, phono cables and earth lead. More info here…
TECHNICS PLINTH PAINTWORK
We use automotive paint so any colour is possible in flat, metallic or pearl finishes.
The plinth is fully stripped back to bare metal, etch primed, undercoated, base coat applied, flattened, smoothed and then lacquered. A choice of either matte or gloss lacquer is available. Gloss lacquer is machine polished to a flawlessly smooth finish.
Once the paintwork is complete, the factory graphics are screen printed in hard wearing, UV cured enamel. Huge choice of colours available. Finished off with a fresh pitch trim and shading cloth.
The blackout pack includes matte black paintwork of the tonearm sections (base, bracket, gimble, pivot, lock lever), strobe tower, pop up turret and pin. The tonearm tube and headshell collar are vulcanised in matte black rubber, which has sonic improvements, see here for more info.
Along with new start/stop, 33/45, pitch knob and pop up light trim, manufactured from ABS plastic, fibre laser markings and topped off with a new black 45 adapter… MK7 – M7L style!
If you prefer, you can have the 3 main tonearm sections colour coded to the plinth but keep the other items in matte black. Please see the photos.
3 STAGE PAINTWORK
Add this option if you would like Lamborghini pearlescent paintwork. 3 stage paintwork requires extra labour and materials hence the additional cost, but naturally, looks amazing!
FEMALE RCA & DETACHABLE IEC POWER CONNECTOR
Add this option if you require our custom female RCA box. Full metal construction and premium gold connections. High quality phono leads included. Our IEC power connector mod removes the requirement for use of a ground / earth lead. IEC lead included.
Full LED conversion including mainboard regulation of the strobe tower, 33 / 45 buttons, target/pop up light and pitch zero. 9 colours available, mix and match if you wish.
UNDER PLATTER HALO
Add a platter halo. This includes a clear polycarbonate cover. Available in RGB or single colours. External power management to eradicate internal noise interference on cartridge pickup.
Platter refurbishment is also available. We will always attempt to get your platter looking as fresh as possible. Depending on the condition, a machine polish may not bring it back to its former glory, especially if there is much corrosion and flaking paint. Our platter refurb option includes removal of old paint, repainted satin black, re-faced and machine polishing. Please add this option if your platters are in bad condition.
A new slipmat and headshell are included. Custom slipmat and plinth graphics can be added at no extra cost.
