News | Technics Unveils New SL-1210G Turntable – The Quietus

The new player, aimed at audiophiles, will set you back £3,499 though

Technics has unveiled a new model of its long-running 1210 turntable series, the SL-1210G.
The new player is aimed at audiophiles, but also includes some of the features that users of the DJ-oriented 1210 series will be familiar with. Technics describes the new model as a twin sister to the GAE model which launched last year, and it includes 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.”
Speaking about the product, European Technics Product Manager 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. 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.”
The SL-1210G will retail in the UK at £3,499, and will be available from October 21. Find more information on the product here.
The launch of the SL-1210G follows on from the SL-100C, described as an “entry level” deck, which was made available for £799 in June.
