Ask any professional DJ: Technics' SL-1200MK2 has been the turntable of choice for the last two decades (and running!). This manually operated, direct drive gem is an LP lover's dream come true. It offers a high torque motor for quick start-ups (from standstill to 33-1/3 rpm in 7/10 of a second!), plus unwavering quartz-locked accuracy at 33-1/3 or 45 rpm. Plus, unlike most other quartz turntables, the SL-1200MK2's quartz lock control is even maintained while using the ?8% continuous pitch adjustment! The construction is impeccable. It features a highly sensitive low-mass tonearm with gimbal suspension. The precision-molded aluminum die-cast platter and cabinet, and heavy rubber base material, help absorb unwanted vibrations while providing incredible durability. Adjust the oversized insulating feet for precise leveling. Plugs into your receiver or mixer's phono inputs.
