Technics SL-1210MK5 Direct-Drive DJ Turntable
The Technics 1200 has been the industry standard for 35+ years. The Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro DJ Turntable replaces the 1210M3D, making a couple improvements along the way: 1) the tonearm construction has been improved, which should lead to better skip resistance. 2) the brake adjustment is now more accessible. Simply remove the record and slipmat and it"'s possible to adjust the platter"'s breaking time with a screwdriver. Other than that, this is exactly the same as the M3D, which had these differences from the original MK2: 1) power switch is sunken to prevent accidental turn-off 2) includes a button which overrides the pitch control to zero (regular speed) 3) no "click" at zero on the pitch control 4) comes with a high quality Technics 2 piece slipmat 5) Dust cover does not include hinges.
The new improved features include:
* Head Shell Stand
* Slip Mat included
* CoveredPower Switch
* Anti Skating Weight 0g - 6g
* Arm Weight Scale for quick setting
* Break Speed Control
* Pitch Control Reset button
Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro DJ Turntable Highlights
The Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro DJ Turntable is the turntable that first established the type of high torque (motor strength), accurate pitch (speed control), quality tone arm (aids in skip resistance), and superior sound that is required by djs, and after 35+ years it is still the standard by which all other turntables are judged. Every other turntable that has come since has patterned their design off this legendary piece of equipment, and the reason is simple: the 1200 is about as close to perfection as you can get with a piece of machinery. It functions beautifully and the durability and construction are unmatched. The body and major components are made of steel. The bottom of the body is made of a dense rubber that eliminates distortion and feedback and adds extra weight for stability. Most of the basic parts are readily available and user replaceable.
Technics - the industry standard
Technics have been the industry standard for over 35 years with this turntable. It has been released and re-released over 9 times with different models and numerous other manufacturers have tried to compete with this deck, but above all, the Technics SL-1200 & Technics SL-1210 sit at the top of the list and have our highest recommendation. There is simply no replacement for a Technics 1200 turntable. Regardless of model number, Technics still makes the best turntable available, and they are used in 99% of all venues. Resale value is also very high. Some newer turntables may have more features, but this is the superior overall product. When you use a 1200, you know you are using the best.
The Technics SL-1200 and Technics SL-1210 turntables have shaped the world we know today. Featured in the London museum of science and technology they are regarded as a major stepping stone in how music is played and presented.
