Same as the MK2 but has a button to reset the pitch as well as a sunken power switch. Also comes with a Slipmat and plastic undercover piece.

Staff Review

The Technics SL-1200 M3D turntable is basically an MKII with some minor changes.  In terms of performance, your getting the same deal as the MKII. However, the Sl-1200 M3D has some added features which some DJs may prefer.  First of all, the Sl-12000 M3D has a sunken power on/off switch. The reason for this is that some DJ's complained that the power switch on the Sl-1200 MKII would occasionally be pushed when doing movement intense DJing such as scratching and beat juggling.  Another difference comes in the reset button next to the pitch control.  This feature allows the pitch to be reset back to 0 when the button is pressed.  For example, if your at +3% and you hit the button, the pitch will return to zero.  When the button is pressed again the pitch will automatically return to +3% (if the pitch had not been changed since then).  Lastly, the Technics SL-1200 M3D turntable also comes with a slipmat and a plastic undercover piece which allows the record to slide on the platter with less friction.
