It's back! Familiar in style but completely re-engineered, the Technics SL-1200GR is better than ever.


The legend continues

Developed as a turntable that was sturdy enough to be used professionally but simple and attractive enough to use at home, the Technics SL-1200 was a hit from the beginning. Starting life in the early '70s, the SL1200 lived through many versions and is still seen by many as the reference deck for club use. The latest SL1200GR model is designed to appeal equally to DJs and audiophiles. With a wide breath of abilities this turntable truly does it all.

Coreless direct drive for the smoothest rotation
First developed for the top-spec 'G' model, a coreless motor is used to cut down on vibration. Development of a single-rotor, surface-facing, coreless direct-drive motor, results in the elimination of 'cogging' which can afflict other direct drive decks.

Rotation control developed through Blu-ray technology
Using motor control technology developed through Blu-ray players, the SL-1200GR verifies and corrects the precision of the motor for perfect pitch stability.

Heavyweight platter construction
Everything about the SL-1200GR's construction is designed to reduce vibration and improve sound quality. The new die-cast aluminium platter features rear-bracing and is 800g heavier than its MK5 predecessor. The improved mass and rigidity improves speed stability and reduces distortion for a cleaner, purer sound.

Fully adjustable tonearm
With high precision bearings and Technics's gimbal suspension system, the S-shaped tonearm is a classic Technics design. It also offers a wide range of adjustments, including VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle), weight and bias, making it ideal for a huge range of different cartridges and even different thicknesses of slipmat. The detachable headshell makes swapping cartridges a quick and simple process.

Connect your own cables
Rather than using static cables like SL-1200s of the past, the SL-1200GR features gold-plated RCA phono terminals. These let you choose your own length and quality of cable that's worthy of a deck of this standard.

Increased pitch control
A new 'x2' button lets you double the range of the pitch control from +/- 8% to +/-16%. This extra range makes it even more flexible as a mixing tool and even handier in the studio than ever.

A reference standard for your home or studio, the Technics SL-1200GR is a true legend within its lifetime.
