Since its debut in 1972, The Technics (pronounced “Techniques”) SL-1200 turntable has represented the industry standard in the DJ and pro audio realm. Over the subsequent half-century, the Japanese brand has treated its SL range to a myriad of updates and revisions, culminating in the latest iteration of the deck, the SL-1210GR.

Building on the existing SL-1200G model, this new Grand Class turntable features a new a low-vibration, high-rigidity, dual-layer aluminum die-cast platter that’s spun via a coreless direct-drive motor with a precise motor control technology that hugely mitigates cogging. Benefitting from a gimbal suspension construction, the SL-1210GR also sports a hand-assembled tonearm with an astounding sensitivity of 5mg or less. Weighing 25.35lbs, the new deck also packs silicone-filled dampers and gold-plated phono terminals. The motor’s 2.2 kg-cm of starting torque enables the SL-1210GR to reach 33.3rpm from a standstill in just 0.7-seconds, meaning this item lends itself just as well to scratching and beat juggling as it does general mixing duties. Available now, the Technics SL-1210GR is priced at $1,700.

Purchase: $1,700
