Has it really been 50 years? The Technics SL-1200M7L Turntable celebrates an impressive milestone.

Technics SL-1200M7L 50th Anniversary Direct Drive Turntable Colors

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.

Only 12,000 units will be released globally.

    One each in green and red as those are my favourite colours.

    Alas that I can not afford even one but I wish those that can, happy spinning of their licorice pizzas!
