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 A article of great beauty. This turntable needs no introduction or amateur review. It needs my approval as much as Eric Clapton needs me to walk up to him in the street and tell him that I think he really is pretty good on the guitar and to keep it up. This renowned turntable was the deck used by professional DJs through my teen years and so became a real object of desire to me and my friends. Whilst not purist for audiophiles It was widely regarded as one of the most durable and reliable turntables ever produced. Over years I have bought a number of ‘high end ‘turntables but the lockdown had me revisiting the boxes vinyl and through all the reminiscing got me thinking that perhaps it was time to but a Technics turntable. I opted for the 1210GR Black. From the moment of unboxing, you come to understand that this is a special product and a thing of utter beauty. I found myself photographing it as I was setting it up. The platinum service from the Plymouth store included their installation of an Ortofon bronze cartridge in for me. The experience of setting it up and playing records on it has been a special, magical and nostalgic one. It is built like a tank weighs about the same. It feels right and it sounds sublime. Other more expensive turntables may ultimately sound better but I am pretty confident that nothing will match the overall joy of living with this icon. It comes as no surprise to hear that At the London Science Museum, a Technics SL-1210 is on display as one of the pieces of technology that have "shaped the world we live in”.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sounding and using an Ortofon Dj Stylus.. I bought this a month ago. I've always wanted a Technics SL1210 As friends in the past had them. I'm so glad I've bought one as they really are the best. Would recommend this Turntable to anyone looking for the Dj Turntable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with new SL1210GR Always great to deal with Richer Sounds and the latest addition to my system has been the SL1210GR which is excellent and far exceeds my expectations. I had a really good experience dealing with my local Glasgow store and all the staff there. Thanks again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing piece of kit I have now had this turntable for two weeks now, workmanship and quality are just amazing.I also purchased the Ortofon R 10 cartridge for hifi quality sound. Totally blown away with the sound. I would highly recommend the 1210gr. I have used Richer Sounds for many years now, quality of service is 1st class and always has been. Very knowledgable and friendly staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20 years later... brings back good ole memories I used to DJ, back in the day and reluctantly sold my MK5G's back int day to fund my family life..... fast forward 20 years my family bought me this as my 40th birthday present and my smile was from ear to ear. The 1210GR is like the 1210MK5G but better. The build quality has improved and little things like removable phono's and plug socket is a game changer. Very happy with this gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than my dreams I wanted a 1210; since the 90s disco days; so high expectations. I was not disappointed: well made; sturdy and surprisingly a lot easier to put together than reviews suggested - do read the instructions and all will be well. On sound its a replacement for a Techinques SL B2 that couldn’t spin reliably even with a new band. So yes with good recent OMD and Joy division sounds great hooked up with Ortofon Red and NAD 3020V2s feeding a pair of B&W 607s. Am very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cracking table Superb build quality and sound to match, excellent service form Richer. If you’re a vinyl lover this won’t disappoint, free next day deliver and great price, why go elsewhere?
