Price tag Technics SL-1200G and SL-1200GAE confirmed
Because of the rumors around the web concerning the very high price tag of the new Technics turntable SL-1200G and SL-1200GAE, I decided to contact Panasonic/Technics.
After a few days, I finally have the official confirmation that both models (the regular one and the golden limited edition) will cost approximately € 3.499
Althought we are dealing with a bigger beast now (read here), this still is a lot of money. I think they will let down a lot of DJ’s with this move.
Differences between the Technics SL-1200 G and GAE version:
- SL-1200 G ships with a magnesium tone arm similar to that of the GAE version, but with a slightly darker finish.
- The silicone-rubber material of the SL-1200 G’s feet comes from a different supplier and has a slightly darker colour but has the same absorbing and dampening capabilities as the material used in the feet of the GAE version.
- The SL 1200 G does not bear the numbered Limited Edition badge
Otherwise, the SL-1200 G is exactly the same as the Limited Edition GAE.
