At IFA last year, Panasonic announced that it was reviving the iconic Technics brand with new turntables. After releasing a super limited special edition earlier this year, the company announced at IFA 2016 that the updated SL-1200G would arrive this month. What Hi-Fi reports that the new version is nearly identical to the SL-1200GAE that sold out in about a month, save for some design changes to the platter and the tone arm.
While there will be more than 1,200 of the SL-1200G available to masses, this turntable won't be any cheaper than that special edition. With a price tag of £2799 (about $3,740, no word on exact US pricing yet), you'll likely need to give some serious thought to nabbing one before September is up.
