Technics celebrates 50 years of legendary SL-1200 Turntable with Limited-edition model SL-1200M7L



This year 2022, marks the 50th anniversary of Technics’ legendary SL-1200 turntable, the most iconic DJing deck of all time. And to celebrate, the company has released the SL-1200M7L, a limited-edition model.


Based on the standard SL-1200MK7, which was unveiled in 2019, the limited-edition M7L is available in seven colour options: yellow, black, red, blue, white, green and beige – that are designed to “pay homage to the street culture which inspired the rise of DJs”.


The DJ turntable features a coreless direct drive motor that promises stable rotation and maximum torque. This is accompanied by a tonearm that is sensitive but robust – always an appealing combination.


The two-layer structure platter is designed to deliver improved vibration damping performance. When combined with the high-rigidity cabinet and high damping insulator, vibrations would not be a problem, even in the bounciest of clubs.



Control features include starting torque/brake speed adjustment, pitch adjustment and reverse play, while the stylus illuminator has a long-life LED that should be good for plenty of spins.


The SL-1200M7L is available for pre-order now priced at $1,100. Limited-edition accessories – including a slip mat with a gold-coloured logo – are available, too.
