It’s back! Familiar in style but completely re-engineered, the Technics SL-1210GR 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-1210 was a hit from the beginning. Starting life in the early '70s, the SL1210 lived through many versions and is still seen by many as the reference deck for club use. The latest SL1210GR 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-1210GR verifies and corrects the precision of the motor for perfect pitch stability.

Heavyweight platter construction
Everything about the SL-1210GR’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-1210s of the past, the SL-1210GR 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-1210GR is a true legend within its lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOP MARKS FOR TECHNICS. I DID NOT THINK YOU COULD IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THE 1210 BUT THEY HAVE . A BIT EXPENSIVE FROM RICHER I GOT MINE FROM WESTEND DJ FOR £799 EACH I THOUGHT THEY WOULD BE CHEAPER FROM RICHER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic follow up to the SL1210 series I bought this 9 days ago & I’m so pleased I did. It was a toss up between a Linn LP 12 (2nd hand) or a new Technics SL1210 GR. I opted for the Technics as I wanted something plug & play without too much tinkering. Set up was easy as per the instructions. My only gripe was that it does not come with a stylus or cartridge. Had to purchase that separately. The audio is noticeably superior to the previous SL1210 MK2 it rplaced. It still has all the quality cokponents that the MK2 had. Highly, highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid and beautiful turntable I bought this a couple of weeks ago and have been re-living my musical past y listening to a raft of vinyl, old and new. The Technics turntable is vastly superior to my old turntable and I am hearing aspects of the music that I wasn't previously aware of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Quality Turntable,Great Sound Upgrade I decided I wanted to upgrade my turntable to hopefully do justice to my ever growing vinyl collection so after reading up a little on the spec, reliability and great reputation of the Technics turntables I took the plunge. My Akai turntable I was using was originally around the £350 price range and sounded fine so for the jump in price of the Technics 1210GR I was expecting a significant upgrade in sound quality and I am happy to report that it is it sounds fantastic along with the Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge there's definitely more Bass & more clarity more punch my records just sound more alive and even less surface noise detectable on certain albums which may be due to the upgraded cartridge.The guys in the Preston store were fantastic and reassured me it was a quality upgrade their customer service was excellent they even fitted the cartridge and set it all up for me ready to pick up at my convenience. Its a considered purchase I know but I wanted to buy a well made and reputable turntable that would last. It's a thing of beauty and I highly recommend it if you're thinking of upgrading. I nearly went for the silver version but the Black looks classy and matches my black Marantz Amplifier. Very happy with my purchase and my vinyl sounds great. Thank you Richer Sounds Preston
