It's hard to believe that the Technics SL-1200 has been a staple of the DJ scene for over 50 years now, but the legendary turntable is back in 2016 with a pair of new models debuted at CES. On their 50th Anniversary, the SL-1200 "Grand Class" models are tuned for serious audiophiles, including the aluminum-cased SL-1200G and the limited edition magnesium SL-1200CAE - limited to 1,200, that is. Arriving with a new high dampening tonearm, a three-layered turntable, and a new microprocessor controlled direct-drive system that eliminates any system vibrations that hinder playback. With vinyl sales returning, make sure to keep an eye out for these two workhorses set to launch later this summer.
