A favorite among DJ's for decades, the Technics SL-1200 MKII turntable is famous for is durability, performance, and professional look.  The Sl-1200 MKII's high price tag is jutified by its excellent performance in every category important to a DJ.  Its high torque direct drive motor allows quick startup and slowdown times.  Its +/-8 pitch control is about at reliable as you can find.  And finally, in terms of durability, the Sl-1200 MKII is about as sturdy as you can get, able to withstand just about any punishment you can throw out at it.  Trusted by DJ's for over 25 years, the Technics SL-1200 MKII turntable is well worth its steep price tag.
