Technics SL-1200 MK5 Turntable

high fidelity High torque industry defining

“Wheels of Steel!”

When the use of slip-mats for cueing and beat-mixing (and scratching) became popular in hip hop music, the quartz-controlled high torque motor system enabled records to be mixed with consistency and accuracy. A primary design goal was for hi-fidelity, but having good build quality, control over wow and flutter, and minimized resonance made the equipment particularly suitable for use in nightclubs and other public-address applications.

Since its release in 1978, SL-1200MK2 and its successors were the most common turntable for DJing and Scratching (also known as Turntablism). Producers, DJs and MCs refer to the Technics turntable as the “Tec 12’s”, “Wheels of Steel”, “Ones & Twos” and the “Tysiąc dwieście”. Technics 1200s are commonly used in recording studios and for non-electronic live music performance. More than 3 million units were sold. It is widely regarded as one of the most durable and reliable turntables ever produced. Many 1970s units are still in heavy use. In the autumn of 2010, Panasonic announced that the series was to be discontinued.
