The turntable is tentatively set for a May release.
Earlier this week it was announced that Technics would return to the DJ game, with its first turntable aimed at the DJ market in nine years.
The new SL-1200 will only be available as a black model, with a range of new features including reverse playback, an improved direct drive motor, a brighter stylus "illuminator", and improved vibration damping. There are two names, the SL-1210 MK7 and the SL-1200 MK7, although there is no difference, with the former being the name for the UK and EU and the latter the US. According to What Hi-Fi?, the SL-1210 MK7 will be £899 / €1000, while the SL-1200 MK7 will be $1200.
