During its CES 2016 press conference, Panasonic took some time out to talk about its new line of Technics turntables
. This year it's releasing two versions
of a direct-drive
model: the limited edition 50th Anniversary Grand Class SL-1200GAE (limited to 1,200 units of course) and a non-limited Grand Class SL-1200G. In these editions, the reborn Technics says it even cured "cogging" with a newly developed coreless motor. There's no word on price, but the turntables should arrive in late 2016.
