The Technics SL-1210MK5 Kit
is exclusive to B&H customers and includes a Marathon flight case and a cartridge. The SL-1210MK5 features a die-cast aluminum platter, with selectable speeds of 33 1/3 and 45 RPM. It has a Quartz direct-drive and a brushless DC motor.
The turntable offers a variable pitch range of ±8%, and has a no-click pitch control, as well as a button that will instantly reset the pitch to zero. The electronic brake can be adjusted by removing the slip mat and making a simple tweak with a screwdriver. You can set the turntable to halt instantly, wind down slowly, or respond anywhere in between. The recessed power button helps prevent accidental shutoff, and the improved LED stylus light has a long lifespan.
