Product Description
If you're serious about spinning vinyl, the Technics SL-1210M5G turntable is for you. With a metallic-black finish and brushed-steel hardware, it looks as good as it sounds. Exclusive to the SL-1210M5G are a digital pitch control, improved tone arm for skip resistance, and adjustable electronic braking system.

The digital pitch control makes it easy to adjust pitch and keep it where you want it, and also consistent from turntable to turntable. You can easily change between +/-8 and +/-16 at the touch of a button, or reset the pitch to zero. The improved tone arm helps alleviate skipping, has a built-in antiskate adjustment, and is height adjustable making it ideal for scratching. You can also adjust the braking speed to make the SL-1210M5G stop as quickly or slowly as you need, and the high-torque motor makes for quick start ups (0.07 seconds from stop to full speed).

Other features include long-lasting, built-in blue LEDs to illuminate the pitch indicator and stylus. The stylus features Kick Cancel and Anti-Skip functions, and the pitch controller is easily replaceable. An arm-end scale makes for quick weight adjustments.

What's in the Box
Turntable with dust cover, slip mat, user's manual, and warranty information.

Product Description
Even more features than the immortal SL-1200MK5 Technics turntable! Tone arm enhancements make skipping a thing of the past while customized braking speed lets you adjust the mood between compositions. Quartz-lock (zero pitch) button, +/- 8percent or +/-16percent computerized pitch control, blue LED indicators for pitch adjustment, and long-life blue stylus illumination. It's a serious DJs dream in a turntable. The SL1200 is the classic that all others are compared to.

I'm sure it will beat an unmodified Garrard 301 with an original arm (console mounted with the mushrooms) especially in the self noise department. A 301 on a well executed custom plinth and a classic or modern arm however.........hmmmmmmmm.......... We'll find out at the show!!!!!!

sure. honestly, if it's DIY, i think it will take at least a decade for a DIY project to come close to the technics in so far as reliability, accuracy and flexibility. now on sonics, maybe a different thing :wink: let's see.

The 1200 has been in production since 1978 and it's still holding it's own against the current competition 8)
