  • Summary: Nothing. And I mean nothing compares to the quality of a Technics 1200 turntable. I used one professionally for 10 years. I still have 3 of them at home and they are among my most prized possessions. These things are built like tanks. No other turntable ever manufactured can even come close to comparing with this incredible piece or hardware. Make sure you also buy a really good cartridge and needle to go with this.

  • Summary: I am reviewing upgrades for the Technics SL-1200/mk II, particularly the KAB PS-1200GX (power conditioner), DC1200 (regulator) and SX1200 (strobe disabler), sold as a package for $260. In the summer of ’10 I acquired a Technics SL-1200/IIa from eBay. Within the first week I noticed that the transformer was transmitting some mechanical vibration to the cartridge. If you have one you can verify this yourself.

Just as described

MLH "expert", Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: I was looking for a "like new" used Technics 1200 turntable. Except for some minor confusion about delivery, the turntable arrived and it was "like new". A caution about upscale turntables: The tone arm is part of the product, but the headshell, phono cartridge, dust cover, and manual are considered removable extra items. These items were not included, but all the other small parts were present.

NOT an AUTOMATIC TT!

Funk Wrench, Amazon

  • Summary: Please fix the heading on this ad. The 1200 is NOT an automatic turntable. It may be the greatest consumer deck ever built but it is not AUTOMATIC.

Unless you have to have bizarre styling for $20k, go with this

  • Summary: When I worked as a DJ at a radio station, they had two of these turntables. So when it came time for me to replace my very old Pioneer turntable in my home system, I got one of these. It's wonderful. The speed is dead on accurate and the sliding speed adjuster is easy to use. Tracking weight is light enough for audiophile vinyl.

  • Summary: Super table. Some "audiophiles" might not agree-but this model replaced my DUAL (CS-5000) so that shows how much I love this unit. I'm considering a cartidge upgrade..from a STANTON 681 Mk3 EEE to a GRADO ( prob. the Gold 1) to improve the performance even MORE. PLUS, as I've heard from many reviews, I won't encounter the infamouse "Grado Hum" on the 1200. Can't go wrong. It's out of production now, but if at all possible, try to get your hands on one. PROBLEM SOLVED !!!

Can beat $5K audiophile deck with some smart upgrades

Vinylspinner, Amazon
12 November 2012
  • Summary: This review is intended as food for thought to people who contemplate purchase of an audiophile boutique brand turntable in $2000 range to match their $5K+ speaker/amp combo. It could be also of interest to people who want to buy "the last turntable they will ever need" and leave it to their children, or to the existing owners of Technics SL-1200MKII to suggest improvement of what they already have.
