The Grand Class Standard Direct Drive Turntable from Technics features a twin-rotor surface-facing direct drive motors, a direct drive motor controller, high sensitive tonearm and a brass-top turntable platter Insulator

The recently developed coreless direct-drive motor used in the 1200G eliminates cogging - or rotation irregularity, and reduces vibration which historically has been an issue with direct drive turntables.

The new magnesium tonearm is designed to last and offers a superior experience to traditional aluminium. It deilvers accurate, detailed sound along with superb damping.

The 10mm solid aluminium top panel enables rich, dynamic tones and high-quality audio delivery. The turntable has a three-layered construction with a rigidly combined brass and aluminium die-cast platter. This platter has a deadening rubber covering its entire rear surface to eliminate unnecessary resonance, thereby achieving high rigidity and vibration damping. This delivers smooth rotational stability and inertial mass

The SL-1200G also has the option to increase pitch range to plus or minus 16% - giving you more control than ever before when mixing.
