We have just received our final delivery of the Technics SL1210GAE 55th anniversary turntable, and we have a very small quantity available.
There is only 1,000 of these turntables built and we understand only 40 made it to Australia (each t/table is individually numbered).
This superb unit is based on the SL-1200G, which is the premium Technics turntable currently available on the local market. The upgrades include:
- The top panel sports a meticulously anodised black brushed hairline finish. In addition, the operation buttons and tonearm also employ a high-quality black finish that results in a uniform, premium appearance.
- The SL-1210GAE is wholly made in Japan by skilled artisans’ hands, with a significant level of hand-made processes to ensure the highest quality possible. The top panel features a special badge, inscribed with the unique serial number to signify that it is a 55th anniversary model.
- The specially developed zinc insulator feet feature αGEL™, a soft gel-like material with excellent shock absorbing properties which is also used on the highly acclaimed, ‘flagship’ SL-1000R reference turntable (not available in Australia). The high-density zinc die-cast housing offers superb vibration damping characteristics and excellent long-term reliability. The new insulator effectively isolates the turntable from external vibrations, ensuring completely undisturbed music reproduction whilst preserving every fine nuance and detail within the musical signal.
- The strobe light can now be turned off as required, allowing the listener to simply concentrate on the music, especially in a dimmed environment.
