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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than expected... What a machine! No messing around with stretchy belts or woolly mats. Just faithful, accurate playback. Paired mine with a Goldring 1042; great combo, but you'd be hard pressed to make this 'table sound bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid performer! Very solidly built, and the turntable speed is very stable. My records sound even better than I remembered, even using my old cartridge, and I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SL1200GR - Fantastic new Turntable. As an avid Technics fan, I would be biased as I have been an owner of the SL turntable range for over 25 years. But this definitely lives up to the hype. Solid platform and works a treat. I;ts clear to see the few improvements, but lets face it, a classic like this does'nt need that many tweeks. Ali at the London branch of Richer Sounds get the product sent out to me immediately and the service was swift and efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A modern day classic Had the turntable over a week and absolutely fantastic. Came with the cartridge , which Sunil from the Kingston store was super helpful. Had a demo, and sounded a good as anything. Will be back to Kingston for speakers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound's better than I had initially thought. I bought this a few weeks ago. I did have a problem at first, this was quickly sorted by the branch in Leicester no quibbles. Great service. What an ecstatic experience. I am glad I went for this model and not the one by Pioneer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT TURNTABLE I`ve owned a few different manufacturers direct drive turntables in my life but the Technics is my personal favourite. It is built very well and the design of the turntable is so perfect it has often been copied by other manufacturers. If you partner it with the right stylus and phono pre-amp you will hear how good it sounds. A great turntable for both home listening and club DJing.
