Technics announcing the new SL-1200/1210 MK7 turntable * price & release update

Technics recently announced the new SL-1200/1210 MK7 via a live stream featuring Kenny DopeDerrick May, Cut Chemist and DJ Koco (Boiler Room).

The brand new Technics turntable is due this summer. According to What Hi-Fi? ,the price of the SL-1210 MK7* will be £899 / 1000 euros, while the SL-1200 MK7 will cost $1200.

*The European model is the SL-1210MK7.* The decks are identical apart from the name.

The 2016 relaunch of the SL- series was criticized due to the high price-tag. This new model could be the beginning of a turning point.

With the MK7, Technics wants to “re-engage the DJ community”. Important features will be:

  • The ability to play in reverse
  • A brand new motor control will benefit DJs who like to scratch (if you have cartridge and needle that supports it)
  • Replaceable phono and power cables
  • Additional brake / torque adjustments
  • Matte black chassis & tonearm
  • Torque adjust for starting & stopping the spinning platter
  • Digital pitch control fader with ±8/16% ranges – with a X2 button at the top of the pitch fader allowing doubling
  • White LED pop-up stylus light (improved illumination)
  • LED strobe (red or blue color)
  • Built from aluminum and fiberglass to reduce vibrations on high-volume, bass heavy stages
