Happy Birthday Technics

Panasonic celebrate 35 years of the Technics 1200 turntable

  • How does a huge electronics corporation celebrate the anniversary of the world's most successful turntable? By releasing a special limited edition of the classic, without really changing anything significantly. If it aint broke, don't try to fix it.
  • We took the liberty of translating the Japanese into techy-English.
  • 1 – The S letter tone arm features OFC (oxygen free copper wire)
  • 2 – 3 layer shell enclosure for maximum acoustic dampening
  • 3 – Improved pitch control
  • 4 – Long-life blue LED
  • 5 – Proven reliability

    Only 1000 units of the SL-1200MK6K1 (black) and 1500 units of the SL-1200MK6 (silver) are slated for release. Grab yourselves a piece of DJ History while you can.
