Technics SL-1200G Now on Sale in the US

Technics SL-1200G

After announcing in January that it was remaking the iconic Technics SL-1200 series of turntables, Panasonic has made the new SL-1200G available in the US.

The model has been redesigned from scratch, according to Technics CTO Tetsuya Itani. It features a triple-layer platter, an iron-free direct drive motor that reduces rotation irregularities, and a sensitive lightweight magnesium tonearm.

The 1200G is the first SL model since the MK6 in 2008. As a result, demand is high and retailers have begun to sell out.

The suggested retail price for the 1200G is $4,000 USD per unit.
