The Technics SL-1200 has been around since 1972. It has gone through several updates since then, but has always remained a classic staple of high fidelity listening, even during its first introduction. This week Technics announced a new update to the Sl-1200 lineup called the SL-1200GR2 (Sliver) and SL-1210GR2 (Black). The new options will retail for $2199 and hit the market in December of this year. Additional information available in the email below.
“Today, Technics introduced the SL-1200GR2/SL-1210GR2, the next generation of the brand’s Direct-Drive Turntable System. This new model features a revolutionary new drive control technique for smooth, accurate rotational stability and a new power supply for an exceptionally low noise floor.
The newly upgraded turntable is equipped with standout audio and design features, including:
- A new Delta-Sigma-Drive and a highly reliable, coreless direct-drive motor for higher accuracy and improved electromagnetic conversion accuracy, ensuring every listening experience is seamless.
- A Multi-Stage Silent Power Supply, which combines a low-noise, high-speed switching circuit for improved audio performance
- The carefully refined, but classic Technics design, which offers color coordination and matching components on all elements, for a sleek exterior
- The newly added, 3 mm die-cast aluminum cartridge spacers to ensure greater cartridge compatibility
The Technics Direct-Drive Turntable System SL-1200GR2 (silver) and SL-1210GR2 (black) will be available at authorized Technics retailers in December 2023 for $2,199.99.”
