Grand Class Direct Drive Turntable System SL-1210GR / SL-1200GR


collapse expand iconDescription

The Technics Grand Class SL-1210GR Professional Direct Drive DJ turntable is designed to reignite the passion for vinyl. This reimagined legend is built for today's digitally focused DJs and producers, with high-torque direct drive and adjustable torque for scratching, back-cueing and beat-juggling. The SL-1210GR's durable aluminum die-cast platter provides inertial mass and stability for tight bass and transients. An illuminating stroboscopic light precisely indicates rotational speed for perfect pitch control.

High-Torque Direct Drive for Peerless Performance

At the heart of the SL-1210GR is a coreless direct drive motor that delivers high torque (4.5 kg-cm) for instant startups and braking. An adjustable torque control knob lets you tweak the platter's resistance to suit different mixing styles. Accelerate from zero to max RPM in 0.3 seconds for razor-sharp cueing and scratching. The motor's speed is monitored over 4,000 times per second to ensure perfect pitch stability in even the most demanding environments.

Precision Engineering for Flawless Tracking

The SL-1210GR's static-balance S-shaped tonearm provides superior tracking for a wide range of phono cartridges. An adjustable counterweight, anti-skate control and height adjustment ensure the stylus is properly aligned for optimal performance with minimal distortion or skipping. The tonearm lifts automatically or manually when the platter stops spinning.

Roadworthy Construction Meets Timeless Style

Like all Technics turntables, the SL-1210GR is built to rigorous standards for reliability on the road. A vibration-damping cabinet, rubber feet and a dual-layered chassis suppress unwanted resonance. Toggle switches, knobs and connectors are designed to withstand intensive use. Yet its iconic design and aluminum/resin construction exude a retro-futuristic style that pays homage to Technics' rich analog heritage.

Additional Features for Versatile Performance

A reverse playback function, 78 RPM compatibility and S-shaped tonearm ensure compatibility with a wide range of media. Pitch adjustment slider and illuminated stroboscopic light enable precise speed control and monitoring. RCA outputs connect to mixers, amps and audio interfaces. The included dust cover protects the platter and tonearm when not in use. Experience the rebirth of an icon with the Technics Grand Class SL-1210GR.
