Few turntables get vinyl listeners as excited as the Technics SL-1200 Series; many of us have owned more than one over the course of a lifetime and they offer tremendous value for the money.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Technics SL-1200 Series, a limited number of special edition SL-1200M7L direct drive turntables will be released.
This product is a special edition model based on the SL-1200MK7, which was released in 2019. The model will be available in seven limited-edition colors to reflect the street culture that continues to inspire generations of DJs.
The tonearm is anodized in a golden hue, and the top panel features a special badge with an engraved serial number that represents the limited-edition model. Special accessories include a slip mat with a gold-colored Technics logo and a 50th anniversary sticker.
Only 12,000 units will be released globally.
