Nivag666's review"Don't sweat the Technics"

Technics SL-1200 MK2
Would DJing have evolved as it did without this turntable? So many pivotal developments in one unit, from the direct drive motor, the almost instant start time, the pitch control, and even the strobe dots. Stone cold design classic, though pretty archaic now I guess. That hasn't stopped then reissuing it, though I'd rather have a vintage model.

Technics SL-1200 MK2
Most of the Djs you can see in the clubs, consider the Technics 1200 mk2 as one of the best turntables a music enthusiast can have. If you are starting to learn the basics of this amusing profession, there is no doubt that the technics products should be more frequent in the learning process. The 1200 mk2 version was dealing with a few changes since its first release in 1972, and its developers have made a fantastic turntable, which became a trademark in the hip hop culture because they were using it as an instrument. One of the notable advantages, is the weight of this turntable, which is 31 pounds. Yes, it is unusual for a turntable to weight as much as this, but it is a characteristic that provides a better sound quality since it is absorbing the vibrations from the speakers. Besides the marvellous weight feature, many users are disappointed in the lack of pitch adjustment beyond 8% and its developers aren’t willing to change it, even when some of the competitions were offering a better pitch adjustment. But, the ability to avoid any change of speed is on the highest level and the beatmatch will always be on point.

Technics 1200 mk2 is the default music tool for almost every respectable DJ today, and even if it is amazing for the clubs, it can still do an amazing job in the audiophile world. The people, which are involved in the world of sound and pay an extraordinary level of details when it comes to achieving the perfect sound, are satisfied from Technics 1200 mk2 and suggest it to everyone who has doubts about it. There won’t be any rumble problems with this turntable because of the quality creation and weight of the product. Every DJ would have issues in the clubs if rumble and instability appears. Maybe one of the most important parts of the turntables is the tonearm because it's crucial when it comes to having a great sound. Technics weren’t developing a new tonearm for this turntable and it is an outdated feature that is not a good thing for the audiophiles. So, if you purchase a second hand Technics 1200mk2, you will need to change the tonearm if you are interested in a better sound.

A creation that is built to last has never failed the people who follow the work of Technics and some of the characteristics can’t be found in other turntables. Having the ability to make a quick start-up with only 0.07 seconds, is an amazing feature to provide in the 70s. The torque motor is making a huge difference from the other turntable companies. The authentic moulded aluminium Diecast cabinet and heavy rubber base material keep the product undamaged. All of the vibrations a regular turntable has, can’t be found in Technics 1200 mk2. Today, used Technics 1200 mk2 can be purchased for a huge price, which is almost close to the regular price of a new turntable. The developers aren’t releasing this product anymore, so a used Technics is the only option if you are willing to have an excellent turntable in your home. Always avoid using Technics 1200 from DJs since their condition won’t be on a satisfying level. This is a very important characteristic for the audiophiles and for the people that don’t want to replace it with another turntable in a few years.

Pros:
- Built to last
- Sliding pitch control
- Designed for professional DJs
- Audiophile quality
- Absorbs vibrations
- Perfect beatmatching


Cons:
- Technics doesn’t release them anymore
- The second hand price is almost as expensive as a new turntable
- Lack of pitch adjustment beyond 8%

Technics SL-1200 MK2
The Technics Sl 1200 MK2 are a series of turntables that have actually been around for a while now. The MK2’s are more on the lower end of the totem pole because there are upgraded versions now of these. But they are classic and still built to last. The original model of this line was the SL 1200 then the MK2’s started, the MK2 I think came out in the 80’s and it was huge through out the up and coming world of hip hop and rap music, which is part of the reason the Technics SL 1200 MK2 made its way to the united states. I like the tone arm, its very sturdy and it’s a classic design with the S shape, turntables today don’t have these.

The MK2’s came out a while back in Europe but made there way over here to the US and am I glad they did! They are very good turntables, they are exactly what a DJ needs, even today with everything going digital and dj’s switching over to computer software to dj on. There are a few dj’s who still own these myself included who value the real art of dj’ing.

Overall these were and still are great turntable’s they are built to last, very solid structure and very sturdy. They are ready for any gig you have and will not break on your even when getting them in and out of the back of the van. You can even purchase a casing for them so you don’t damage them at all. Actually purchasing parts for the Yamaha SL MK2’s is pretty easy because Yamaha still manufacturers these and pretty much all of there machines keep the same parts line so if you ever need a fix even if its discontinued you can still purchase a part. Great turntables!
