KAB began its start with the SL-1200 in 1994 with our Broadcast Standard version which featured 78 RPM. We were the first to introduce the SL-1200 to Audiophiles, with the introduction of the TD-1200 tonearm fluid damping system in 2000. Yes, that's 18 years ago!
Now, in 2018 there is a brand new line of Technics 1200's factory made just for Audiophiles. And in paying homage to the newly introduced SL-1000R, KAB introduces the TD-1000 Fluid damper.
The best tonearms use fluid damping. Now your Technics can have this desirable feature. The TD-1000 consists of a precision machined trough, tonearm paddle, and special Silicone fluid. Installs easily in minutes.
The paddle rides in the fluid controlling sudden movements of the arm. It also helps suppress sound vibration within the tonearm tube. Improves tracking on warps, and tracing of minute details. You will hear better bass and clearer vocals and a sound stage that stands dead still in the room. Works great at all speeds including 78 RPM. True worldclass performance. Fits all of the new models, SL-1000R, SL-1200G, GAE & GR.
