Zikra Audio
Turntable and MC Transformer

Experience two exclusive products for analogue listening: A custom built turntable and an outstanding MC transformer.


Reference Turntable that is Custom Built with an Exclusive
Zikra Audio Plinth

We offer high fidelity enthusiasts around the world a reference class turntable. It is a custom built edition of the Technics SP-10R turntable sporting an outstanding, heavy plinth developed by Zikra Audio.

The SP-10R features a coreless direct drive motor which, in addition to a two-sided rotor drive system. It boasts stator coils on both sides of the rotor, for a more powerful and accurate sound.

The SP-10R also features a ultra-low-noise switching power supply, which, compared to a power supply unit using a transformer, is better at suppressing unwanted humming sounds and vibrations. The power supply unit is separate from the main turntable, preventing unwelcome noise from being transmitted to the turntable unit, for a sharper and clearer sound.

The base of the turntable is a plinth developed by Zikra Audio. The plinth is in mirror polished stainless steel. It contains 11 layers of soft aluminium attached with two-component vibration damped glue. The plinth itself weighs 45 kilograms, which is equivalent to 100 pounds.

The record player is delivered with or without Technics' own 12 inch tonearm. It can also be supplied with the exclusive tonearm Ikeda IT-407. The tonearm base is in gunmetal and is compatible with 10-12" effective length tonearms.

Fit a high-quality pickup and let the signal swim through the neutral MC Transformer from Zikra Audio and you're in for dream world of enjoyment. Choose between a 1:20 copper wound oversize permalloy core or a 1:20 silver wound oversize permalloy core.
