- It'll be available from October for £3,499.
Technics has announced a new turntable aimed at the audiophile market.
The SL-1210G follows the limited-edition SL-1210GAE model, which sold out shortly after its launch in June 2020. In terms of specifications, the new turntable is essentially an updated reboot of the SL-1200G model from 2016 but with a black finish.
"We realised there was high demand for a 'regular' black version of this flagship 1200 Series model," said Frank Balzuweit, Technics' European product manager.
The SL-1210G has an iron-coreless direct-drive motor, which provides enhanced rotation stability, and a tonearm made from magnesium that offers a high damping effect. It comes without a factory-fitted cartridge.
The SL-1210G is available in Europe from October 2021 for £3499/€3999. Head to the Technics website for more details.
