The legend not only lives but is better than ever, with the Technics SL1200G.

A legend in the home, studio and club

Developed as a turntable that was sturdy enough to be used professionally but simple and attractive enough to use at home, the Technics SL1200 was a hit from the beginning. Starting life in the early '70s, the SL1200 lived through five versions (in the UK) and, even at its demise in around 2010 was still seen by many as the reference deck for club use. Now it's back and, in G form, it's the best ever regular model!

The best SL1200 ever
The Technics SL1200 has always been superbly built but this is even better. Added to the existing three-layer chassis is a new, 10mm thick top panel, crafted from solid aluminium. This provides superior damping for a more dynamic sound. A newly developed, coreless motor is used to cut down on vibration with twin rotors providing high torque and an even load on the bearing. In short, the new SL1200G shouldn't just be the best-sounding but also the hardest wearing - with a weight of 18kg to prove it.

High spec magnesium tonearm
Unique to the top spec SL1200G is a magnesium tonearm (the standard models feature an aluminium one). Lightweight magnesium offers a high damping effect; quelling distortion. It’s also extremely rigid, helping the tonearm offer the most precise and detailed sound. High precision bearings and Technics’ gimbal suspension provide the smoothest tracking

Connect your own cables
Rather than using static cables, the SL1200G features brass-milled, gold-plated phono terminals. These let you choose your own length and quality of cable that's worthy of a deck of this capability.

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.

Whether it's for use at home or earning its keep in clubs, the Technics SL1200G is simply the best of the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply astonishing! Having owned more expensive belt driven turntables including Linn, Rega & Michell, I was not expecting such a substantial step up in audio quality from the SL1200G. The deepest, tightest, cleanest bass I have heard on a turntable, together with perfect pitch and pin-point image clarity. I cannot praise this table highly enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Benchmark Turntable I own and use daily a sl1200 and sl1210, The difference with the new turntable was immediate .clearer more defined sound, stronger bass and to my surprise a larger soundstage. Tested with Goldring 1012 and Stanton 680mkII al.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly well built turntable This is an incredibly well built turntable, the weight of it speaks for itself, it is a vast improvement on the old design. The staff at richer sounds were very helpful and informative and did not hesitate to give me a massive discount as I bought two of these to replace my old SL1200 MKII's which I've owned for over 20 years and are also still in perfect working order. Yes these are very pricey but when you love playing vinyl and you see and feel one of these units you'll soon realise that you 'get what you pay for'. Invest in yourself and treat yourself is my advise to anyone who's thinking of buying one or even two of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Technics SL1200 G turntable This is the most I've paid for a turntable over the years I have collected most of the high-end technics turntables from the sp 10 to the 1200 mk5 to look at it's not much different in looks to the old SL 1200 mk2 it has a new motor new tonearm and led blue lights , I must say the sound is fantastic well worth a look at , very pleased with the deck and thanks to richersounds for there help .
