Key Features

The new SL-1210MK7 Direct Drive Turntable. The new model inherits the traditional design of the same series and maintains the same operating ease, reliability and durability, while newly adding a coreless direct drive motor and other sound-enhancing technologies. It also features new DJ play functions, such as reverse playback. The SL-1210MK7 is launched as the first new standard DJ turntable in approximately nine years.


The Technics SL-1200 Mk7 is also available in silver here.



Product Description

About the Technics 1200 Series
The SL-1200 was launched as a popular direct drive turntable in 1972, becoming a best-selling model with cumulative sales of 3,500,000 units for the series. It was supported by powerful torque, easy operation, and high durability. It became greatly admired by both audio enthusiasts and DJs who helped to unleash the DJ culture in areas such as electronic dance music. The series is still highly acclaimed by DJs worldwide today.
High-quality sound reproduction true to the Technics philosophy
Coreless Direct Drive Motor Achieving Stable Rotation and Powerful Torque

The direct drive system uses a slow-rotating motor to directly drive the platter. This system has various advantages. It offers high performance, such as rotation accuracy and powerful torque, does not require replacement of parts and maintains high reliability over a long period of time. However, the direct drive system was said to on occasion produce a rotation irregularity called cogging. For the SL-1200MK7, a new coreless direct drive motor was developed. This motor employs a coreless stator. The removal of the iron core from the stator eliminated the root cause of cogging. Furthermore, the magnetic force of the rotor magnets was improved to the highest possible level, and the gap between the coreless stator and rotor magnets was optimised, thus achieving high torque performance equalling that of the SL-1200MK5. Boasting smooth rotation and powerful torque, this motor reproduces sound accurately and faithfully from the groove on an analogue record.
Highly Sensitive Tonearm Accurately Reads the Signal Stored in the Record Groove

The tonearm, which is responsible for accurately reading the signal by tracking the groove on the phonorecord, is a static-balance universal S-shape tonearm, another Technics tradition. The tonearm tube is made of lightweight, high-rigidity aluminum. The bearing section of the gimbal suspension construction tonearm consists of a machined housing and high-precision bearing to assure excellent tracking performance with minimum stylus jumping, even in harsh playing conditions such as scratching.
Two-layer Structure Platter with Improved Vibration Damping Performance

The platter on which a vinyl record is placed features a two-layer structure with deadening rubber on the entire back surface to eliminate unwanted resonance in the aluminum die-cast platter. The platter offers high rigidity and outstanding vibration-damping characteristics to prevent harmful vibration from being transmitted to the record and delivers clear sound.
High Rigidity Cabinet and High Damping Insulator for Thorough Shut-out of All Vibrations

The chassis, an essential part for reducing external vibrations, inherits the audio quality enhancement technology fostered through the development of high-end turntables. The aluminum die-cast chassis is rigidly integrated with a special material consisting of ABS mixed with glass fibre to achieve a two-layer construction. The combination of this special high-rigidity material and a metal chassis raised the rigidity and vibration-damping performance to higher levels, realising a robust cabinet for beautiful sound reproduction.
The insulator is comprised of a spring and rubber to provide optimal frequency characteristics. This not only assures high sound quality and superb howling resistance, but also effectively shuts out external vibrations under high sound level conditions.
Detachable Power/Phono Cable Terminals Prevents Cable Discontinuity

The power and phono cable terminals allow detachment of the cables. The phono terminals are gold-plated to minimise sound quality degradation. Since the terminals allow disconnection of the cables, maintenance of the cables is easier, and your favourite phono cable can be connected to let you enjoy the change in sound quality resulting from a different cable.
Inheriting, and Enhancing the Operating Ease of the SL-1200 Series
Starting Torque/Brake Speed Adjustment Function

The SL-1200MK7 employs the newest motor control technology refined through the development of Blu-ray disc products. Utilising a microcomputer, this advanced motor control technology ensures high performance in normal rotation and also responds accurately to a wide range of DJ play styles, such as scratching.
The starting torque and brake speed can be adjusted individually to suit the user’s preference.
Pitch Control Function Enables Accurate and Stable Pitch Adjustment

The rotation speed can be set to 33-1/3 rpm, 45 rpm or 78 rpm.* The pitch control function allows fine adjustment of the rotation speed within 8%/16%. This function achieves accurate and stable pitch control thanks to full digital control with improved tracking performance and accuracy.

* To use the 78 rpm speed, the switch on the main unit must be turned on.
Reverse Play Function Expands the Breadth of DJ Play Styles

The platter rotates in the reverse direction when the speed selector button and Start/Stop button are pressed simultaneously. This expands the breadth of DJ play styles.

*To use the reverse play function, the switch on the main unit must be turned on.
* The phono cartridge used must support scratch play.
A Traditional Design Ideal for DJ Play
Stylus Illuminator Featuring a High-brightness and Long-life LED

The stylus illuminator features a new push-type structure and employs a high-brightness and long-life white LED. The illumination area and intensity were reviewed to provide improved visibility of the stylus tip compared to previous models even in a dark environment.
All Black Design

The SL-1200MK7 sports black buttons and a black tonearm while retaining the SL-1200 Series’ button layout. With the matte-texture black body and black parts, the new all black design presents an attractive, refined appearance. The LED light can be set to illuminate in either red or blue, further enhancing the DJ play environment.

Fantastic Turntables.
Before I give my opinion on these il make it clear right now that I was filled with trepidation buying mk7s. As a technics mk2 fan since I got a pair in 1997, coupled with the poor reviews for these turntables I was expecting to be sending these back to the outlet I bought them from. The reason I took the leap was that I'd had after market pitch put in my mk2s (not my original 97 ones ) after and expensive service and I wasn't happy with them. I couldn't mix on them. So I decided to go for mk7s after reading they were good to mix on ...which for me is all that matters. I also read about technics ironing out some of the early issues with the pitch on the first run of decks ... dead spots at +/- 8. This was another game changer for me. I can confirm, if there was an issue ... its been sorted. So after unboxing technics for the first time since 1997 I switched them on and hooked everything up ... filled with trepidation. After 30 minutes I knew they were going nowhere. Let's be clear .... these are not built like mk2s. I don't like the target light which they could have done better with. And we don't know the longevity of them compared to our old trusted analogue technics. But, these decks are beautiful to mix on. They sound amazing. They are the 2 most important factors for me. The digital pitch ... which I was dreading is smooth as butter ... just fantastic and they hold a mix just fine. I'm a mixing dj, not a scratch dj so holding a mix is obviously vital for me. There are some nice touches like torque adjustment, led colour change etc. I've left mine at the default setting and they're perfect. Obviously the detachable cables are great compared to older models. The led on the target is bright white ... really nice. So in conclusion ... if you're on the fence and looking at these for mixing in the bedroom or deck room etc .... you won't regret it. I'm really pleased with them. All doubt was washed way within 30 minutes. I'm planning on adding another for a 3 turntable setup. Go for it and enjoy.

These are beautiful turntables. Ok they are not as solid and heavy as the mk2�s but still a high quality turntable. I actually prefer these over the mk2�s. Digital pitch is perfect, absolutely no issues whatsoever. Would highly recommend without question.

Are they better
Read ALL the bad reviews, they'll never be as good as MK2 etc. Well if you can justify spending ridiculous amounts ok money on 20-25 year old decks then go ahead. Or do what I did and buy these! I've owned MK2 and PLX 1000, when I got the PLX I really couldn't tell any difference in terms of mixing compared to MK2 just that they looked a bit different and they didn't say Technics on em. These MK7 are of course different looking to MK2 etc buy they feel like 1210's to me! Was worried about the digital pitch and yes it does feel different to a MK2 but I have to say I think it is way more responsive, and these no Click at 0 creating a dead spot. Build quality issues in reviews, well, the start stop button is plastic, I think? But they are definitely not as light as everyone is making them out to be, they are a bit lighter but I'm not gonna get walking round the house with one under my arm! The bad reviews on feedback, are you playing on em in a club? No? Well stop moaning about non existent feedback in a home studio environment! 1210 bought bang up to date, I love em!

Great decks..
Very quick delivery, I was a little worried about the reviews on this as there have been problems with the pitch and resonance, but after using them for a few days I have fallen in love with them. They hold a mix perfectly, tbh better than my old mk2s ever did. Recommended for home studio use but I think the resonance issues will be a problem for clubs. Think the mk8s will fix this...

Great Turntable for great price
After many years using Technics 1210mk2 I bought a pair of MK7. I tell you what, I�m so impressed of the quality of this turntable. It�s much lighter than any other Technics turntable and has a fantastic and responsive direct drive motor. I really enjoy every moment while using it.

I shouldn't have waited so long.
Being an old fart and coming from the vinyl era I always toyed with getting some 1210s. The current crisis in the world meant that I could use it as a valid excuse to get some. I've never been more p***ed off that I waited 20 years before getting some. Wow. These things can hold a mix perfectly. Solid.

Be the first to answer this question
Have the problems with isolation and dead spots on the pitch fader been rectified now ? I heard they had serious problems with them a year ago and wonder if its been rectified, seeing as they aren't cheap pieces of kit ! Also, would these be better for mixing over scratching, comparing it with the plx 1000s ?
pageylnp asked 2 years ago
I got mine about 9 months or so ago and i can confirm that this has been fixed. I have no dead spots and that the fader works flawlessly. I have a pair of these and MK2's and they both operate as good as eachother. I would only know what deck i was using by looking at them. The whole controversy about this was technics dragging its heels and not being honest about the situation that a lot of early adopters of these new decks were experiencing but have since then resolved the issue at the maylasian fab where they are built. Hope this this puts any doubt out of your mind as these really are a delight to use and I personally will be cherishing them for a long time.
