About Technics

Technics is a brand and subsidiary of the Japanese company Panasonic Corporation that is known for its high-quality audio and electronic equipment. The brand was established in 1965 and quickly gained a reputation for producing innovative and top-notch audio products, particularly in the field of turntables, amplifiers, and speakers.

Technics also developed advanced audio technologies, such as the Quartz Direct Drive System, which ensured accurate and stable rotation of the turntable platter. This technology significantly reduced wow and flutter (speed fluctuations), making Technics turntables highly sought after by audiophiles and DJs alike.
