Technics To Cease Production Of Iconic 1200 / 1210 Turntable Series


No, say it ain’t so!! It’s been announced by Panasonic, manufacturer of Technics 1200 / 1210 turntables, that it will cease production of the iconic turntable series. As a staple in the development of club music for 35 years the Technics turntable has been one of the most important tools for DJs from house to hip-hop. A decline in sales has been cited as the reason behind this momentousness decision, which goes into effect as of February 2010. A sad day indeed. R.I.P Technics, long live Technics…


  1. Nick,

    I have set up a facebook group to show opposition to this: Save the SL 1200: stop Technics killing an icon

    Its welcome to members to show their displeasure and demonstrate their creativity.

    All are welcome
