Technics have revealed the price of their new SL-1200 (SL-1210 in Europe) MK7 turntable. The new player, designed with DJs in mind, is currently listed on DJ stores for £899, significantly cheaper than their previous re-launched turntables. They've also confirmed the new unit will be available from May 2019.
While the new unit is more affordable, it's still more expensive than recent clones like Pioneer DJ's PLX-1000. However, with Technics' reputation for build quality and lifespan, as well as the new features like reverse mode, Technics fans can probably justify the extra cost. With the NAMM show starting next week, expect more DJ announcements from Wednesday.
