To celebrate 50 years of the SL1200 turntable, Technics has announced limited-edition models in black, red, blue, white, green, yellow and beige, which apparently “have been selected to reflect the street culture that gave birth to DJing”.

The SL-1200M7L’s have golden tonearms, engraved serial numbers, and come with gold-coloured slipmats with Technics logo.

The turntables feature starting torque/brake speed adjustment, reverse play, and high brightness long-life LEDs in the stylus illuminators.

Technics are touting the “high-rigidity cabinet and high-damping insulation for thorough shut-out of all vibrations, even during harsh operating conditions”.

This latter claim is something we’d question, unless they’ve altered the rather lightweight design from the launch model of the Mk7 in 2019, which were prone to bass feedback – something that didn’t affect the venerable old Mk2s so much.

We’ve requested a review pair, meanwhile they are available now at £899 each, £100 more than the price of the standard model.
