Technics Reveal New Turntable ‘SL-1210G’

Due for release in October, the premium product will cost around £3,499 each.

Technics turntables are an iconic part or DJ culture, and the industry standard for clubs.

The 1210 model is the flagship for Technic’s turntable range, and the new SL-1210G is the latest version. This particular model is aimed more towards audiophiles, which means it’s designed at hi-fi enthusiasts rather than DJs, but it’s improved audio playback still has all the features DJs need.

It’s being described as a twin sibling to the GAE model that got released in 2020, but the new 1210G features an “iron-coreless direct drive motor, a hybrid encoder for rotational speed detection, using digital and analogue technology to allow for enhanced stability, a three-layer platter with high vibration-damping performance and high-damping silicone rubber insulators to minimise vibrations.”

Talking about their new turntable, Product Manager of Technics Europe, Frank Balzuweit said: “We learned from the huge success of the limited edition SL-1210GAE, which was launched in June 2020 and almost immediately sold out.”

Frank Balzuweit continued: “We realised there was high demand for a ‘regular’ black version of this flagship 1200 Series model. In its striking black finish, the new SL-1210G possesses genuine elegance.”

Being aimed at audiophiles means a high standard of technology, which comes with a price tag to match. So, available from October 2021, the new 1210G will cost £3,499 each.
