Technics has unveiled the latest reincarnation of its classic SL-1200 turntable.

Label the “standard” model, the Panasonic press release says, the new Grand Class SL-1200GR direct-drive turntable “inherits the technology of the Sl-1200G”, with a newly developed “coreless direct-drive motor and precise motor control technology, high-rigidity platter and high-sensitivity tonearm.”

 

Panasonic recently hinted last year that a cheaper model could be on the way as the original SL-1200G had a £3k price tag, there’s reason to believe the SL-1200GR may make fans happier, although an official retail price is yet to be announced.
