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 Awesome super duper trooper! Ordered this and waited in anticipation for it to arrive direct from RS. Happily, it arrived earlier that stated! Unboxing it was a pure delight! Packaged with precision, removing each component released the fresh odour of quality engineering. The process of levelling the platter and balancing the arm after fitting the newly purchased Ortofon Concorde Club took a little work although was particularly enjoyable in a geeky kind of way. Once in place and adjusted, the choice of Sault’s, Seven album was a great first listen! The blank track was quieter than I remember from the1210 mk2 and the sound unleashed had acres of clear distance between instruments, voice and frequencies. The bass thumped and the snares cracked! Superb! I fully intended to spend £800 on the mk7 although seeing it in the flesh next to the 1210GR at the Maidstone branch, I immediately committed to spending the extra. This is quality engineering like the original 1210 with huge improvements in the power supply, motor and sound! Need to find a way of justifying a second deck to my wife who already signed off this purchase as a mid life crisis! What if she’s right?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A major step above the clones in build and sound I have owned similar looking turntables from other manufacturers for a number of years and they have been more than adequate with my aging vinyl collection (50+ years in most cases) The Technics SL-1210GR is a major step up in all respects. The attention to detail and build quality shows in the reflected extra price but is worth it if you appreciate both engineering and music as I do. The interest free credit was the icing on the cake as well as the well informed and superb telephone ordering service and subsequent customer service. 90% of my audio visual requirements have been from RS since they opened their store in Cardiff back in the early 80's

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Turntable Built To Last I purchased a pair of these Technics SL1210GR for DJ use as I run a small equipment rental business. I was comparing them to the old SL1200/1210MkII or Mk5's which are now being sold for silly money (up to £800+) most definitely not worth the inflated prices, I knew that these newer models had to be better than a deck that was over 20 years old!!! I was definitely not disappointed, they have been overhauled in a subtle way adding better features (which you may or may not notice) but still keeping the feel of the classic desks we know and love. Most definitely worth purchasing over an old pair of SL1210/1200MkII or Mk5's, for only a fraction more on the cost, you get a whole lot more from the SL1200/1210GR, It's a brand new deck that will never depreciate in value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great looking, superbly engineered turntable. I purchased this turntable as an upgrade 2 weeks ago. A word of caution. Take time to set it up according to the manual. You will be rewarded by the fantastic sound. I paired the deck with the Ortofon cartridge. However I was hearing sounds on some of my LP's that I'd never heard before but (to my ears) not in a good way, so concerned, I took the turntable back to Richer Sounds in Leeds for a 2nd opinion and reassurance that I'd set it up right. I needn't have worried. Mike set everything up in their listening room and all was fine. Nothing was too much trouble and I came away happy and with some new speaker stands. I throughly recommend the Technics 1210 turntable and Richer Sounds. You will not be disappointed with either.

Stunning looking turntable and the sound is just better than i ever imagined i couldn’t be happier with my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality and performance Completely blows the Pro-Ject turntable it replaces 'out of the water'. I replaced my system with the Technics TT (same amp set up & cartridge as previously), so much more detail, depth and music. Seriously heavyweight TT unit is of a high construction, operation and material quality & no more messing around with belt drives. Very happy with this purchase. This TT is here to stay.
