Technics SL-1200MK7 Overview

  • 1Description

The Technics SL-1200MK7 Direct Drive Turntable System is a professional turntable designed for audiophiles, DJs, and turntablists. The SL-1200MK7 offers significant enhancements to the analog and digital technology including coreless direct-drive motor and precision digital motor control, which eliminate cogging from rotation irregularities. The latest microcomputer technology is utilized for advanced motor control, which ensure high performance in normal rotation and responds accurately to a wide range of DJ play styles, such as scratching. Additionally, the starting torque and brake speed can be adjusted individually to suit the user's preference. What's more, by pressing the Speed Selector button and the Start/Stop simultaneously, the platter will reverse direction, adding a whole new level of performance possibilities

The aluminum die-cast platter features a two-layer structure with deadening rubber on the entire back surface to eliminate unwanted resonance, providing high rigidity and outstanding vibration-damping characteristics and preventing harmful vibration from being transmitted to the record. The aluminum die-cast chassis is rigidly integrated with a special material consisting of ABS mixed with glass fiber to achieve a two-layer construction. The combination of this high-rigidity material and a metal chassis raised the rigidity and vibration-damping performance to higher levels, realizing a robust cabinet for remarkable sound reproduction. 

The S-shaped tonearm employs a lightweight, yet rigid aluminum pipe, while the gimbal suspension system utilizes high-precision bearings to assure solid tracking performance with minimum stylus jumping, even in harsh playing conditions such as scratching. The tonearm ships with a counter weight for use with a variety of cartridges to match music genre or feeling.

The turntable features gold-plated RCA terminals for use with detachable cables, as well as a detachable earth-ground wire and a detachable power cord. The Technics SL-1200MK7 ships with a rubber slip mat, dust cover, 45 adapter, balance weight, headshell, cartridge mounting hardware, stereo RCA cable, earth ground cable, and an AC power cord.
