Technics SL-1200G

7/10 by Shibataman

I absolutely love this deck with one exception. The arm height adjustment is not properly calibrated before leaving the factory, requiring a thicker than normal turntable mat to be used. I use the original SL1200 mat, and for most Audio Technica cartridges, the height must be set to zero when using the thicker mat. If the original mat is used, the arm will not adjust low enough to accommodate the cartridge. Using a mat like the FunkFirm will work also, however the center spindle becomes too short for the clamp to work properly. Contacting Technics to explain the issue is also futile. After the warranty expires, I will remove the Tonearm, remove the locking lever, and lower the arm myself.

A completely redesigned SL1200G that taking advantages of modern engineering and technologies. With excellent workmanship, precision engineering and technologies break throughs.
It stands apart from those many many TT solely rely on heavy masses for speed stability and vibration damping.
Regarding its sound, accuracy in speed, dynamics, resolution, wide soundstage and background quietness combining with user friendlyness easy to set up, I recommend anyone who are looking for a turntable at this price range must give it a try.
