Technics Technics SL-1210M5G Direct Drive Turntable
In many circles, Technics' SL-1210M5G is known as the "Grand Master" of the notoriously classic 1200s. Even with a discontinuation is manufacturing, the 1200s remain a staple in the DJ industry. Technics prides itself on creating high-quality, everlasting turntables, and their diligence does not come up short here. Improved anti-skate technology produce strong bass, clear sound, and fine tunes the revered 1200 into a tank that will surely last for quite some time. Digital pitch control keeps adjustments consistent from deck to deck. A wider range of pitch control shows a range double that of its predecessors, upgrading to +/- 16 percent. Technics may have more competition these days, but they weren't undisputed industry- standard for nothing. Unparalleled torque yields a start/stop time of 0.07 seconds, the quickest out of any turntable listed. But a hefty price tag and technological advancements that are still not on par with their more affordable counterparts pushes the revered 1200 towards the bottom of the list, as its time being the "standard" of DJ turntables is being challenged by other models.
