It was announced back in 2014 that Technics would relaunch and now in 2015 we’re getting our first glimpse of the dopeness the brand is about to bring. Technics parent company Panasonic unveiled the brands new turntable at IFA in Berlin. It a prototype of the legendary SL-1200!!! Now we all know the Sl-1200 is pretty irreplaceable and truthfully they could’ve just re-released it with some creative new skin options and better inner workings….but that’s just us 😉
We’re diggin the way this new – yet to be named – turntable looks. The new design has a more streamlined than it’s predecessor, a coreless stator to eliminate cogging, high-torque twin rotors to reduce the bearing load while minimizing rotational fluctuations, oil-impregnated high-precision bearings for minimal vibration during rotation and a completely redesigned direct-drive motor control! All we wanna know is will be able to out perform the Legendary 1200’s in a DJ battle?
