Technics SL-B210 turntable
The Technics SL-B210 is a fully manual belt drive turntable that was designed to operate at 33 and 45
It is fully manual, which means that you have to move the tone arm over to the record and retrieve the arm
again when the record is complete.
The speed switch (far left) on the SLB210 was three position, 33, 45 and OFF. Off is represented by a single
dot. If you own one of these turntables and the switch is in the middle [ where the dot is ], then the platter
will not spin. Some are fooled into believing the table does not work, but all they need to do is flip the
switch! This is one of the few turntables with a power switch on the right side.
Early DJs used this model because they could defeat the rotation of the platter.
The SLB210 has pitch control for both 33 and 45 RPM : it can raise the pitch [speed] by 8%.
The turntable has a sleek, streamlined grey body and the controls are in front of the dust cover, so it can be
operated without raising the cover. The RCA cable and the power cable do not detach, they are attached to the
inside of the turntable and come out of the rear of the chassis
