Audiofanzine FR's review

Technics SL-1210 MK2
Originally written by spolaire on Audiofanzine FR.

I bought my last pair of SL1210 mk2 about two years ago.
I used a previous model for eight years. I gave them to a friend who is a professional sound engineer and he still uses them.

Very reliable, almost indestructible. Proven quality!
Everybody knows the SL1200 mk2.
You'll never have unpleasant surprises.
I was curious about trying out the new model. It doesn't seem to be as reliable as the SL1200.
So I stayed faithful to the brand.
I have never regretted having bought the SL1200 mk2.

Technics SL-1210 MK2
I have is for 1 month, after having had quite a Vestax, pdx a2 a2 mk2 d3mk2 2300mk2 and pro.
What I like is the pitch and design after anything.
Must not close our eyes, his has the mouth, pitch and pleasant, good hit.
But in 2014 it is exceeded, and I really expected a good month before mailing the notice.
I will change the RCA and resell them to return Vestax Pro 2300 mk2, her jumps not one bit ... But not a hair.
most is the dimension argus and pitch that's all.
Having Technics when you can have the latest Vestax is like traveling in a caravan at a time when there's railway ....
I am going to take the train friends ...
I test Vestax that came out at the time of technics and better kept the pavement, I'm not an addict Vestax but ... it is a fact

Ours*'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Base"

Technics SL-1210 MK2
I use the detour evenings and condos pals for several years, but for 3 days with me!

I've owned seven TTX (available here also: https://fr.audiofanzine.com/vinyle-dj/numark/TTX/petites-annonces/i.777146.html ^^) and have not tested significantly more direct competitors (OEM, Vestax PDX, Stanton ...)

I love +:
- Touch
- Sustainability
- The object
- Quality
- Argus!

I like -:
- The guts of zero!
- 8% sometimes just a little


Quality / price ratio:
I have € 920 chopper with two Concordes cells DJ S; they date from 2009, state that more nickel, with invoice, cartons, no unwrapped accessory (even the covers are still factory sealed)
-> It's worth, especially when you look at the price Thomann! ^ ^

And yes I would do without hesitation that choice!

Dj rdk's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Inimitable!"

Technics SL-1210 MK2
I use these plates for over 20 years almost exclusively for scratching ... But they also are excellent mix (note the pitch who can play tricks. Later we pace or not!)
Advantages: Robust, reliable, immediate departure (+ or - 0.6ms), sweet and pretty (in 1200 or 1210), spare parts easy to find ... Etc!
Cons: I do not see objectively negative points.
Sure, like a asr 10 sampler, but it is an investment that does not disappoint.
I also looking for a room for me to make a third!
With Serato like, they behave beautifully.
If it again? yes 200% (and I have tested many others ...)

the TSB belts and other stews a time
What is so special that you like most and least?
their timeless beauty!, it continues today ... imitate their look, strength, the feeling of having something true in vinyl, default zero point he must learn to circumvent the other in pitchant disk differently yard mix!
How do you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ...
quality has a price, the market opportunity for these models speaks for itself, it is still possible to find a pair 500 € super state function and aesthetics as was my case this month.
Ten years after having sold a pair purchased new, I would have been able to run on other brands, but no! ... We know that when you buy selected "the" technics mk2, has just ensure that they are not rinsed and again, all the above is repair the spare parts do not miss a time it is, people redeem them for rehabilitation and resell for a great price today!

malaUK's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" 20 years after, nothing to say."

Technics SL-1210 MK2
In 2011 to purchase a former DJ who owned him for over 15 years! They were out of the factory in January 1989 after serial number ;)

All parts are original nothing has been changed, the pitch took its time to feel! The lamps do not budge, just an LED on one of my two MK2 has nothing but good flinch very serious next month I rennovent! The two lighthouses, pitch, pitch button, LED pitch that to fail [and a good shot of lubricant on the shaft and inside the weight and everything will be against niquel as before!

Anyway nothing to say, over 20 years, carry and transport RE anywhere in bags suitcases I flew with etc ...

THEY ARE ALWAYS! Just a few scratches on the related transport and a small paint replacing the arm after a journey is imposed but nothing serious! They are niquel, the must of vinyl <

staco67's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Value."

Technics SL-1210 MK2
I use 2 for 10 years but have bought OCCAZ. They have 15 years anyway ... without flinching. Against by the torque seems to have weakened over time, no problem.

I have not used other models of turntables vinyl, I can only compare to the cd decks that I used (Denon, Stanton, pioneer, gemini, numark) and regardless of the model is really more fun on vinyl .

This is the most robust, metal everywhere, reliability foolproof, extreme stability of the plateau and the platinum itself ... and the design is timeless, it slams. I am against mixing with ipads, really, it's like an accordion with a mobile phone.
The sound is clear, warm (if you have good cells), no disappointment in any case on the horizon!

A fault perhaps is that technics could change its business model by increasing duties as a screen bpm counter and displays the pitch. In fact, these plates are legendary after all very sketchy.
Also was quick to tear rca cables or mass trapping them somewhere ... Again it would have been nice to have two outputs RCA connectors on the board in order to disconnect the cable, such as food.
The weight may be a defect in transport, otherwise I'm looking I can not find other "defects" ...

The value is good because it is really a question of strength and a long-term purchase .. serato opens with an incredibly enjoyable mix I recommend it (without forcing each one makes his choice) this is buy 2 mkII and a macbook serato one rather than two turntables Pioneer cd is also advanced they are. Because with serato was the excuse of having to pay dearly for his vinyls!

I would do this choice when I change it for new ones, without hesitation, because they have never made me one fear.
