Product information - Technics SL-1200MK7 Silver

Professional DJ turntable with iron-core-less direct drive motor

Technics presents the new long-awaited Technics SL-1200MK7 DJ turntable. It has the same ease of use, reliability and durability as its predecessors while being optimized with a coreless direct-drive motor and other sound-enhancing technologies. Also available are new DJ features, such as reverse play for maximum creativity, and an expanded pitch range from ±8% to ±16%.

The tonearm is statically balanced and highly sensitive, providing a highly accurate pickup of the record signal. In terms of vibration damping, the Technics SL-1200MK7 has a two-layer turntable construction, a highly stable housing and effective damping feet. Apart from that, the DJ turntable is equipped with long-lasting and brighter LED needle lighting. Other very practical features include detachable power and signal cables for greater flexibility and start/stop torque adjustment.

In terms of style, the Technics SL-1200MK7 comes with a silver cabinet including silver buttons as well as an S-shaped tonearm, which provides a continuous silver design in an attractive, refined look. With all these features, the DJ turntable aims to set a new standard for DJ turntables.

Technics - SL-1200MK7_Direct drive motor
Iron core-less direct drive motor for stable rotation and powerful drive torque

Iron-core-less direct-drive motor for robust rotation and powerful drive torque.

In a direct drive turntable, the motor is directly connected to the platter. In this case, the so-called cogging torque could cause small irregularities in the rotation. For this reason, a new direct-drive motor has been designed for the Technics SL-1200MK7, which uses an iron-core-less stator, thus completely eliminating the source of cogging torque. This results in smooth rotation and powerful drive torque to enable precise and detailed sound quality on all records.

Technics - SL-1200MK7_Tone arm
The sensitive tonearm ensures highly precise scanning of the record signal

High sensitivity tonearm

The Technics SL-1200MK7 features a statically balanced S-shaped tonearm that captures the musical information contained in the record groove. The tonearm tube is made of lightweight, high-strength aluminum, with the gimbal bearing section incorporating a machined housing and high-precision bearing elements. This ensures excellent tracking with a minimum of unwanted needle movement even under demanding conditions such as scratching.

Technics - SL-1200MK7_Platter
Two-layer platter construction with improved vibration damping

Vibration Damping Turntable

The die-cast aluminium platter of the SL-1200MK7 has a two-layer construction. The entire underside of the platter is covered with vibration-absorbing rubber, which eliminates unwanted resonance and provides high stability. This protects the record from harmful vibrations and results in an undistorted, authentic sound.

Technics - SL-1200MK7 rubber foot
Highly stable housing and effective damping feet for comprehensive vibration protection

Rigid housing construction and damping feet with spring-rubber composite.

The DJ turntable has an extremely robust and extremely low-vibration housing. The combination of the injection-molded aluminum frame and fiberglass-reinforced ABS plastic construction provides very high strength and vibration damping, ensuring precise and dynamic sound reproduction.

The feet of the SL-1200MK7 provide ideal damping thanks to the spring-rubber construction. In this way, an extremely good noise immunity is achieved, which is especially welcome for scratch DJs.

Technics - SL-1200MK7_Pitch
Pitch function for precise and stable fine speed control

Pitch function for precise and robust fine adjustment of the speed.

The Technics SL-1200MK7 offers besides the two conventional rotation speeds of 33-1/3 and 45 rpm also the possibility to activate 78 rpm via the main on/off switch. Apart from that, the pitch range can be extended from ±8% to ±16%, which provides improved tracking performance and accuracy for perfect beatmatching thanks to fully digital control.

Technics-1200MK7_needle illumination
Needle illumination thanks to bright, long-life LED

The needle illumination of the SL-1200MK7S features a new print mechanism and a brighter, longer-lasting LED. In addition, the illumination area has been optimized to make it easier to see the needle even in very dark environments.
