When Technics re-released its iconic SL-1200 turntable three years ago, its brilliant construction and superlative sound caused a sensation. This latest SL-1200GR version is designed to offer vinyl fans a much more affordable package with excellent value for money. An updated version of the company’s legendary quartz direct drive system maintains speed more accurately than a Swiss watch, the platform’s aluminum base absorbs vibration like a sponge. The S-shaped arm is robust and of high quality, it is worth mounting a capsule of a certain level. The result is a bold, rock-solid sound with bold imaging and plenty of detail. It’s a great way to get the most out of your vinyl collection.
