This new Technics turntable sets the standard. It looks familiar on the outside, but has been redeveloped on the inside as a direct-drive turntable for the next generation of music lovers.

Launched in 2016, the SL-1200G combined Technics' traditional analogue technology and advanced digital technology, while redesigning parts throughout. Its outstanding performance literally rocked the hi-fi market and redefined the reference for direct-drive turntables.

Parts that were inherited from the SL-1200G were newly developed for the SL-1200GR, beginning with the coreless direct-drive motor and precise motor control technology that eliminated the cogging that originated from rotation irregularity, and including a low-vibration, high-rigidity platter and high-sensitivity tonearm.

By these measures, the level of performance clearly outperforms the usual standards of its class. The SL-1200GR invites more audio enthusiasts to enjoy music with the rich, robust sound of analogue records — just add a cartridge and enjoy.

Coreless direct drive eliminates cogging and achieves smooth rotation
  • The newly developed coreless direct drive motor can reduce minute vibration during rotation while maintaining high torque.
  • The high-precision motor control technology switches the drive mode depending on the operational status of the motor and thus enables high torque and stability.
Tonearm with high-precision bearings achieves high initial-motion sensitivity
  • The tonearm pipe is light, highly rigid aluminum.
  • The use of traditional Technics gimbal suspension construction and high-precision bearings attains high initial-motion sensitivity.
High rigidity and improved vibration damping capacity
  • Reinforcing ribs on the back side of the aluminum die-cast platter and rubber coating for removing unnecessary resonance can deliver high rigidity and improved vibration damping capacity.
Vibration-proof cabinet and insulators
  • The newly developed coreless direct drive motor can reduce minute vibration during rotation while maintaining high torque.
  • The high-precision motor control technology switches the drive mode depending on the operational status of the motor and thus enables high torque and stability.
High-quality terminals
  • Gold-plated PHONO output terminals prevent degradation in sound quality.
  • The case has a metal shielded interior to protect from external noise.
Highly accurate turntable speed with pitch control
  • The digital control method is adopted to achieve constant pitch control.
  • A pitch variable range select button (×2) is provided, allowing for pitch control with a range up to ±16 %.
