Revived – SL-1200G!

Technics is reviving its hugely popular SL-1200 turntable with the release of two models in 2016, the limited anniversary edition (limited to 1200, of course) Technics SL-1200GAE available mid-2016 and the mass-market aluminum-cased SL-1200G following at the end of 2016.

Featuring a four-layered cabinet, a three-layered turntable platter, a coreless direct drive motor (33.3/45 and 78 RPM), high-level balance adjustment, as well as high quality terminals, it might well become one of the most popular turntables once again if they don’t screw anything up.

I might very well get one of these if the price tag stays reasonable (which it probably won’t).

Update: Apparently, the turntable is going to clock in around $4000. Didn’t I know it. There’s probably a butler delivered with it who’s going to painstakingly clean each and every LP before he spins them for you.
Ridiculous.
