This year, Technics releases the SL-1210GAE Limited Edition direct drive turntable to commemorate the 55th anniversary of the Technics brand. This special model is based on the internationally acclaimed Grand Class SL-1200G hi-fi turntable and features a full black colour scheme, which has already proved popular with other recent Technics products. The SL-1210GAE will be available from June 2020 and limited to only 1,000 units will be sold in the world (300 in the US)

Special and exclusive specifications of the SL-1210GAE 55th anniversary model

1. All-black colour scheme

The SL-1210GAE’s 10-mm-thick aluminium top panel sports a meticulously anodized black brushed hairline finish. In addition, the operation buttons and tonearm also employ a high quality black finish that results in a uniform, premium appearance.

2. Special badge inscribed with a serial number

The SL-1210GAE is wholly made in Japan by skilled artisans’ hands, with a significant level of hand-made processes to ensure the highest quality possible. The top panel features a special badge, inscribed with the unique serial number to signify that it is a 55th anniversary model.

3. Insulator

The specially developed zinc insulator features αGEL™, a soft gel-like material with excellent shock absorbing properties which is also used on the highly acclaimed, ‘flagship’ SL-1000R reference turntable. The high-density zinc die-cast housing offers superb vibration damping characteristics and excellent long-term reliability. The new insulator effectively isolates the turntable from external vibrations, ensuring completely undisturbed music reproduction whilst preserving every fine nuance and detail within the musical signal.

αGEL™ is a trademark of Taica Corporation registered in Japan and/or other countries.

4. Strobe light ON-OFF switch

Turning off the strobe light allows the listener to concentrate more effectively on the music, especially in dimmed environment.

 IMPORTANT:
The US version of this product will NOT come with the Nagaoka cartridge that's offered in other markets.
