Remember what DJs used in the club before the 1200s? Nobody else does either. That's because the heavy-duty design, vibration-resistant construction, and mechanical precision make a lot of what those early DJs did possible.
This deck was the first to feature a Direct Drive motor, quartz movement for total accuracy, adjustable tone arm weights, anti-skate control, a pop-up target light and a sliding pitch control. With each new improvement, as form follows function, the Technics turntable has become a thing of beauty.From the community centers at the beginning of the disco era to the clubs of today, Technics decks have been the standard for over thirty years.Vibration Resistant ConstructionA die-cast aluminum body, heavy rubber base, and a lack of unnecessary components or empty space allow the 1200MK2 to absorb unwanted vibrations that could otherwise interfere with the sound.Ultra-Low-Speed Motor / Super-High TorqueThe 1200MK2's ultra-low-speed motor and high torque (1.5kg/cm) allow for super quick start-ups (0.7 sec) and stops.Quartz Locked Pitch AdjustmentAllows for accurate quartz-locked pitch adjustments throughout its 16 percent (+/-8) range.Total Direct-Drive AccuracyInstead of just spinning the platter, the classic Technics Direct-Drive system actually incorporates it into the motor, reducing the number of parts that can malfunction and making consistent, accurate speeds possible. It's a system that has been providing fast start-up times and unequalled responsiveness for over thirty years.
