Technics SL-1200MK7PS Turntable Arrives in May

The new Technics SL-1200MK7PS turntable will be on sale in Europe starting in May. A more affordable Technics SL-100C table is following behind it.

This might sell out rather quickly. Or in only a few hours. A new Technics SL-1200MK7PS turntable with the silver finish of the legendary turntable with the same performance of the SL-1200MK7PP turntable released in 2019.

Released originally in 1972, the SL-1200 featured a direct drive, high-torque motor, and has been used by millions across the globe to spin records, scratch, and DJ live music for almost 5 decades. That’s some serious longevity that has well-earned brand and product loyalty.

Our friends across the pond get to experience this new table in May 2021.

It features the same coreless direct drive motor with powerful torque, S-shaped tonearm, pitch control and reverse play function of the SL-1210MK7.

The Technics SL-1200MK7PS  turntable will be on sale in Europe starting in May, with the MSRP set at £799 (€899), with information on wider release to follow. We’re hoping to see both new models from Technics here in June or July.

If you’re not shopping for the more expensive Technics SL-1200MK7PS  turntable, Technics have also announced the rather affordable SL-100C Turntable which will retail for around £799; the new deck does not include the internal phono preamp of its more expensive sibling, the Technics SL-1500C, and utilizes a different phono cartridge from Audio-Technica (VM95C).

It has the same direct-drive motor from the SL-1500C which is designed to avoid issues such as clogging and speed control, plus a version of the company’s long-running S-shaped aluminum tonearm. The build quality should be quite solid at around $1,000 when this tables goes on sale in N. America.

Considering the size of the following, Technics might have a potential challenger for the Rega Planar 3 and Pro-Ject Debut EVO turntables with the new SL-100C. Swap out the inexpensive Audio-Technica MM cartridge for something better from their lineup or the super affordable Nagaoka MP-110 and you have a very solid entry-level turntable source.
