Lab Overview

  • new improved vibration damping platter w/ iconic side strobe dots

"After a 10 year absence from the market, the most iconic DJ turntable is available again. For those familiar with previous models, the MK7 feels and performs very similarly. The main upgrade occurs down the center with a new, more precise direct drive motor and a more heavily-dampened platter (for less distortion). Removable cables, wider pitch adjustment, and 78rpm are also great functional upgrades. You'll be glad to know that Technics did not cut corners here, all the details that made this turntable a classic (the adjustable tonearm, quality headshell, high-quality painted finish, adjustable height feet, smooth pitch control) are all still there." - TTL

"The direct drive system is said to cause rotation unevenness called "cogging", but in SL-1200MK7, the coreless stator eliminates this. In addition, the torque performance equivalent to the SL-1200MK5 was realized. A motor having both smooth rotation and strong torque reproduces the signal engraved on the analog record as originally intended." - Technics
