The Technics 1200 Turntables Are Back!

Today, Panasonic unveiled the new limited edition Technics SL-1200 GAE turntable at the CES trade show. A standard edition SL-1200G version will be available later this year. This is great news for DJ's all over as there is a new Technics turntable on the market that takes what made the original so good and adds to it to make it even better. The new 1200's have the same iconic look and feel of the originals but they will have even more technology inside which will eliminate rotational vibrations for better sound, more upgrades to the iconic motor for smoothness, and a platter that has brass, aluminium, and rubber for even more durability.
