When Panasonic first broke the news that they were reviving the beloved Technics brand of turntables, we didn’t quite know what to think. The prototype that was revealed at IFA in Berlin was gorgeous, but it didn’t do too much to convince us it would ever be a suitable replacement for the tried and true 1200s that DJs everywhere are still using. But Panasonic just revealed that they’re bringing back the iconic Technics 1200s, and they’re better than ever. The Grand Class Technics SL-1200G is powered by an all new direct-drive motor designed to reduce speed fluctuation in the platter by skipping the iron core. The aluminum housing is also outfitted with special positioning sensors and heavy feet to reduce vibrations. If you don’t want to wait until later this year to buy one, the Limited Edition SL-1200GAE with full magnesium housing and serial number is available for purchase now.
