Today Technics announced the release of a new 21st-century version of their previously released SL-1200 turntable, named the SL-1210GR and the SL-1200GR.

The main difference between those two is that the 1200GR is silver and the 1210GR is black.

Both will be available in stores in April for £1,299 each, featuring a few new features than the original version, with a tuning that Technics has conducted to provide a balanced sound, whatever record that you are playing.

This comes after Technics first unveiled the SL-1200 turntable back in 1974.

When that table was first released it was well respected by a number of audiophiles out there, with everyone from DJs to home users playing their vinyls on one.

This new version keeps a lot of the audiophile features of the original turntable.

In terms of specifications, the new Technics turntables feature a coreless direct-drive with a single rotor motor, while including an aluminium-and-rubber construction and a platter that weighs 2.5kg.

According to Technics, the turntable can provide a torque of 3.3kg/cm.

Both of the turntables are available now for £1,299, however, it has been reported that they are already sold out, so getting one might take you a little while.
