The Technics 1210 turntable has for many years been a favourite with radio and club DJs but in recent years it has also become popular with audiophiles who modify the standard deck to greater or lesser degrees.
Here Hifi Pig look at some fairly simple modifications to the stock turntable all provided by the guys at Origin Live.
“The original Technics 1200 turntable was introduced by Matsushita in October of 1972 as a domestic record player but was quickly adopted by radio and club Djs. The SL-1210MKII (the turntable used here) was launched in 1979 with various upgrades and new models since then being introduced. Over three million of the 1200 series turntables have been sold. I like the 1210 for its rock steady pitch which to my ears gives a nice and solid feel to the music, though others have called the turntable “dark”.”
