Return of a Legend: Technics Latest Direct-Drive Turntable Systems SL-1200GR opens a new Chapter in Music History

Technics have recently announced the new Grand Class SL-1210GR (black) Direct-Drive Turntable System, joining the SL1200GR (silver) edition that was announced earlier this year. Both models inherit state-of-the- art technology from SL-1200G, which was developed as a reference direct-drive turntable for the next generation. On top of these legendary features, the latest models offer new materials and technical design, enabling stunning sound quality for a wider group of audio enthusiasts.

Technics’ SL-1200 has been an iconic turntable and first choice for generations of vinyl fans. While being celebrated for its sound quality, it is also renowned for its flexibility and robustness. The incarnation of this legendary turntable, the SL-1200GR (black), will be available from April 2017 onwards (in some markets). As customers have come to expect from Technics, the SL-1200GR models make no compromise on sound quality. At the same time, these newcomers also provide all the functions that made their iconic predecessor so popular among DJs: its durability, shock resistance, reliable direct drive and adjustable rotation speed. The latest models also come with new materials and a novel overall technical design. "The SL-1210GR combine the best of both worlds," says Michiko Ogawa, Director Technics at Panasonic. ""We are sure both models will fulfil the expectations of Technics fans around the globe. Our objective was to extend our top range for audio enthusiasts as well as professional DJs.""

Components from the SL-1200G were newly developed to create the SL-1200GR, such as the coreless direct-drive motor and precise motor control technology, high-rigidity platter and high-sensitivity tonearm. This ensures audio enthusiasts using the SL-1200GR can enjoy music with the rich, robust sound of analogue records.
