Introducing, the new Technics Grand Classic SL-1210G. Finished in Black the SL1210G has the same features as the SL1200G but now with a Black 10-mm-thick machined aluminium top panel. A true high-end hi-fi turntable aimed at audiophiles, re-engineered and redefining the Direct Drive Turntable.

 Starting it's life in the early '70s, the SL1200 lived through five versions (in the UK) and, even at its demise in around 2010 was still seen by many as the reference deck for club use. These reengineered versions may look the same but underneath it's classic looks, it has a completely reengineered construction. The use of a newly developed coreless direct-drive motor with no iron core eliminates cogging (the rotation irregularity often associated with the original models) The turntable platter has a three-layered construction with a rigidly combined brass and aluminium die-cast platter. With a deadening rubber covering its entire rear surface to eliminate unnecessary resonance, thereby achieving high rigidity and vibration damping. This delivers smooth rotational stability and inertial mass surpassing the SP-10MK2, the direct-drive turntable standard used by broadcast stations worldwide, as well as having more than twice the inertial mass of the SL-1200MK5.

The tonearm employs lightweight magnesium which has a high damping effect, with cold drawing improving the characteristics of the material and achieving the high-precision required. In addition, high initial-motion sensitivity is attained by employing the traditional Technics gimbal suspension construction with horizontal rotation axis and the vertical rotation axis intersecting at a single central point, as well as high-precision bearings using a cut-processed housing.

A hairline-processed, 10-mm-thick top panel of immaculate aluminium has been added to the previous three-layered construction of aluminium die-cast, BMC, and heavyweight-class rubber on the SL-1200MK5. This four-layered construction combines high rigidity with a high-quality finish and feel.
