Technics has announced a 50-year anniversary of the iconic SL-1200 DJ turntable, the limited-edition SL-1200M7L.

Based on the SL-1200MK7, released in 2019, the new direct-drive turntables will be available in seven limited-edition colours (black, red, blue, white, green, yellow, beige) which have been selected to reflect the street culture that gave birth to DJing.

The SL-1200M7L’s special-edition details shine through, with tonearms anodised in a golden hue, engraved serial numbers on each individual piece, and a gold-coloured slipmat with Technics logo. Further features are listed below.

  • High-rigidity cabinet and high-damping insulation for thorough shut-out of all vibrations, even during harsh operating conditions
  • Starting torque/brake speed adjustment function
  • Pitch-control function enables accurate and stable pitch adjustment
  • Reverse play function expands the flexibility of DJ playing styles
  • Stylus illuminator featuring a high-brightness and long-life LED

The Technics 1200 Series was launched as a popular direct-drive turntable in 1972, becoming a best seller. Epitomised by its powerful torque, easy operation, and high durability, the series is still highly acclaimed by DJs worldwide today.
