The SL-PC10 is a five-disc carousel-style changer. Made in Japan and released by Technics in 1989. Technics designed the SL-PC10 like an old-fashioned turntable.
You lift the CD player`s transparent lid to load the discs on a large turntable that looks something like a big daisy. Each of the five daisy petals holds one disc. You can look through the cover to see which discs are loaded while the SL-PC10 is playing. Better still, you can raise the lid and change four of the discs while the fifth one plays.
The front panel contains all the controls and displays of a full-featured CD player. A fluorescent display indicates which track on which disc is playing, as well as being switchable between four time modes. A tiny animated display shows the discs going around in a circle as the daisy platter rotates.
You can program 20 selections in any sequence from among the five discs. A random-play mode shuffles all the tracks on one disc and then moves on to the next disc until all the tracks on each disc have been played in random order. The repeat-play mode replays each disc or replays the selections you`ve programmed. The famed Technics linear motor transport moves the laser in a flash.
The SL-PC10 skips from the first to last track of a disc in about a second. It takes the changer about five seconds to skip from one disc to another. This item has been tested and performs very well.
