New Technics 1200 Turntable

Technics unveiled their new SL-1200 MK7 turntable in Las Vegas Monday at CES. The new model comes eight years after the last update in the form of the MK6. Technics’ parent company Panasonic described the MK7 as having a lighter motor and a microcomputer for better motor control from their Blu-Ray technology. The stylus has been improved to provide increased visibility of the tip. The DJ-intended turntable also has a LED light that can be changed from red to blue. The MK7 boasts reverse playback among its other features but Panasonic did not list a price for the turntable in its press release
