Technics SL-1200 Turntable Sells Out In Just 30 Minutes

Technics SL-1200 Turntable Sells Out In Just 30 Minutes

Last year DMN wrote that the Technics SL-1200 turntable would be returning after being discontinued in 2010, despite there being a resurgence in vinyl interest.

This was made official yesterday when they went up for sale in Japan. Now, today it has been announced that the initial run of new Technic SL-1200 turntables sold out in just 30 minutes. 300 of the limited edition turntables went up for sale for the equivalent of $3,300 each and vinyl lovers quickly snapped them up.

Earlier this year it was reported that the new edition would set customers back thousands of dollars and people quickly criticised the price tag. But, this hasn’t had any effect on sales – in fact the manufacturers have reported that they didn’t quite expect the models to sell out as quickly as they did. The Technics SL-1200 turntable is classed as one of the most important turntables in history and those that purchased them obviously saw value in the product to justify the expenditure.

Now, there is talk that another 900 limited edition models will be available to purchase internationally, but at this time there is no dates on when or information on where.

Also, if the limited edition is out of your price range a slightly more affordable version is said to be available later this year.
