Making Sweet Music! Review with images

AdvantagesSturdy, well built feature full series

DisadvantagesBecoming Pricey!

"...beginning this analysis of the Technics SL-1200series in general by saying I love Panasonic, formerly known as Matsushita Electric Industrial Co.Ltd products. I love this quality, sturdy if heavy brand. Therefore, I will attempt to be as candid as I can in noting any flaws! ==Company history in brief== Founded in 1918 by by Konosuke Matsushita, The multinational Panasonic Corporation has its headquarters in Osaka, Japan. Its primary business ..." Read review

AdvantagesVery high quality DJ Deck

Disadvantagesnone

"...DJ scene, i learnt that Technics decks whether they are these or the SL1210's (black version) are and will stay the industry standard Professional DJ Turntable. I got my first one second hand for £280 with gold-plated plugs. This helped the sound quality, apparently. I then purchased a 2nd one brand new with a 2 channel mixer, for £450, inc Cart and needles. They are so easy to use. The strobe light on the front helps you find which speed the ..." Read review

Technics 1200's-the best and sexiest decks around

AdvantagesNearly everything-the best decks by far.

Disadvantageshigh price new9though it is justified), pitch control clicks into place at 0% pitch.

"...better than the industry standard-the Technics SL1210 or SL1200-but none, in my opinion, come close. These are the best selling decks there are, so surely that shows how good they are. With +/-8% pitch, and very quick start up times, no wonder nearly all top DJs choose Technics as their weapon. The Technics decks have been around for years, but still look ready for business. Although there is no difference performance wise, I prefer the Technics 1200s ..." Read review

Thumping Technics SL-1200

AdvantagesEasy to Use, look stunning, trendy

DisadvantagesHeavy, Easy to switch off by accident

"...you haven't heard of the Technics SL1200, then you have no interest in djing... The decks are nice and sturdy as it's aluminium casing weighs in at a hefty 11kg. so if you're doing gigs, you'll need to build up those muscles if you want to move quickly! there is a high amount of torque and they are VERY easy to use! These decks are only for the true DJ's out there... at 0.025% WRMS this means that two tracks playing at the same speed are not ..." Read review

Technics- not all that

AdvantagesWell Built, Good reputation,

Disadvantagesspeed control

"The technics decks have been known as the "the best decks" for many years, but over the past year there have been many new decks that have been brought out that in my opinon are better that the technics. For example the Vestax PDX-2000 and the Vestax PDX-d3s are in my opinion a lot better that the technics sl-1200 if you compare the starting times the vestax decks are faster the have more pitch control a heavier tracking weight, reverse play, and ..."

every smart d.j. needs these decks

Advantagesmarket leader, most clubs use these, easy to use

Disadvantagesparts are quite expensive

"Technics are the most sought after and popular decks on the market, closely followed by vestax. however although vestax are a cracking set of decks, almost every d.j. will notice that most venues are sticking by there guns and leaving technics in the clubs. i think the main reason is that they have always been reliable and are very hard wearing. All though i am not very technically minded, I know that technics do pretty much everything that i need ..." Read review

Technics Decks SL1210 mk11

AdvantagesThe Best Deck Around Great Starting Speed And Overall Performance.

DisadvantagesWell To Be Trueful I Can't Find Any.

"The Has Got To Be The Best Deck Every Produced, But Just Because It's The Pro's Favourite Doesn't Mean To Say That It's The Only Deck Available. There Are Lots Of Manufacture's Revealing More Decks Each Year. To Be Honest I Think The Technic's Deck Needs A Bit Of A Sprucing Up. This Deck Has Stayed The Same For Several Years Now A I Personaly Think That It's Time To Change. I Would Also Consider The Stanton Deck Or The Gemini Which Does Look And ..." Read review
