Abbey Road Studios and Technics are proud to announce that they have joined forces for the launch of the brand new Grand Class turntable range – the SL-1200GAE and SL-1200G.
Their release marks the 50th anniversary of Technics turntables and the new SL-1200s - which are now in residency at the Studios - have been developed for audiophiles looking to rediscover and experience the unique sound quality of vinyl. They will be released this summer, with the SL-1200GAE available only in a limited run of 1200 units.
The Studios will host the highly anticipated redesigned versions of the Technics SL-1200 turntables in the mastering studios and restaurant, for use by artists, engineers and visitors alike.
Senior mastering engineer Geoff Pesche, who has owned a pair of the original Technics 1210s for 30 years, had this to say, “I recently had a demo of the new Technics SL1200GAE in Mastering Room 5. Beautifully crafted, with a heavy platter I’ve not seen before in a domestic turntable, it tracked everything seamlessly. This is a benchmark turntable for the 21st Century.”
