Technics SL-1200MK7 DJ Deck Announced
Technics reveals its new Silver Edition SL-1200MK7 DJ turntable to complement the industry-leading SL-1210MK7.
Technics has unveiled the new Silver Edition SL-1200MK7 Direct Drive Turntable along with its entry-level SL-100C hi-fi turntable today.
Teased back at CES 2019, the SL-1200MK7 inherits the same features and performance as the already hugely popular SL-1210MK7 DJ deck, which was introduced in January 2019.
The Technics SL-1200MK7 features a coreless direct-drive motor for stable rotation that we're promised is free from cogging and possesses the powerful torque we've come to expect from the brand. Also included is the ubiquitous S-shaped tonearm.
You also get a two-layer platter with improved vibration-damping performance along with a high-rigidity cabinet complete with a high-damping insulator for thorough shut-out of all vibrations, even during harsh operation conditions.
As per all DJ requirements, the starting torque/brake speed adjustment and pitch control functions are all present and correct. Furthermore, so is a reverse play function. Finally, the stylus illuminator featuring a high-brightness, long-life LED will help cue up tracks in low light situations.
Technics' SL-1200 was launched as a popular direct-drive turntable in 1972, and became a best-selling model with cumulative sales of 3,500,000 units for the series. It was supported by powerful torque, easy operation, and high durability. It became greatly admired by both audio enthusiasts and DJs who helped to unleash the DJ culture and is still highly acclaimed by DJs worldwide today.
The SL-1200MK7 will be available in Europe from May 2021 with a recommended retail price of £799.
