Sweetwater Sales Engineer Brian Hughes presents the Technics SL-1200MK7. The SL-1200 has been a leader in turntable technology since 1972 and constantly innovating since then. And with the Technics SL-1200MK7, this professional direct-drive turntable has reached a new pinnacle of precision performance. Featuring an innovative coreless direct-drive motor, the SL-1200MK7 delivers the rotational accuracy and high torque of a traditional direct-drive motor, while eliminating the root cause of cogging (speed variations caused by motor impulses). In classic Technics tradition, everything on the SL-1200MK7 is engineered for maximum sonic performance, from the S-shaped aluminum tonearm and gimbal suspension system to the 2-layer platter with enhanced vibration dampening.
