Technics SL1200 Turntable



Remember what DJs used in the club before the 1200s? Nobody else does either. That’s because our heavy-duty design, vibration-resistant construction, and mechanical precision make a lot of what those early DJs did possible. This deck was the first to feature a Direct Drive motor, quartz movement for total accuracy, adjustable tone arm weights, anti-skate control, a pop-up target light and a sliding pitch control. With each new improvement, as form follows function, the Technics turntable has become a thing of beauty. From the community centers at the beginning of the disco era to the clubs of today, Technics decks have been the standard for over thirty years.


  • Vibration Resistant Construction
    A die-cast aluminum body, heavy rubber base, and a lack of unnecessary components
    or empty space allow the 1200MK2 to absorb unwanted vibrations that could otherwise
    interfere with the sound.
  • Ultra-Low-Speed Motor / Super-High Torque
    The 1200MK2’s ultra-low-speed motor and high torque (1.5kg/cm) allow for super
    quick start-ups (0.7 sec) and stops.
  • Quartz-Locked Pitch Adjustment
    Allows for accurate quartz-locked pitch adjustments throughout its 16 percent (+/-8)
  • Total Direct-Drive Accuracy
    Instead of just spinning the platter, the classic Technics Direct-Drive system actually incorporates it into the motor, reducing the number of parts that can malfunction and making consistent, accurate speeds possible. It’s a system that has been providing fast start-up times and unequalled responsiveness for over thirty years. Wow & flutter 0.01% WRMS, rumble -78dB
