Technics SL-1200G Turntable Review

December 27, 2019 § Leave a comment

Those, such as myself, who already own an SL-1200 mk2 will say, “okay yes, so what is new?” To that, I would reply that the difference between the two generations of decks is that the new one is subtly smoother, quieter and less aggressive sounding. It’s just as much fun as the oldie – indeed even more so – but has fewer obvious drawbacks, more of which later…

The SL-1200G’s overall musicality is the deck’s standout feature, and hard to ignore – even when compared to more expensive superdecks. Yes, this Technics does have character – but it’s a good one and hard not to love. Where a number of mid-to-high price belt drives fall over themselves to be detailed, incisive, even-handed and tonally accurate, this iconic direct drive just dives straight into the music and has a ball. Play Chic‘s Good Times or indeed any similarly beat-driven seventies disco-era tune, and you’ll see what I mean. “
