Celebrating 50 years of the Technics SL-1200 series

In April 2022, we celebrated 50 years since the launch of the SL-1200 series.
We thank you — SL-1200 series lovers around the world — for making this journey with us over the last half century.
Here’s to 50 more great years of progress with the Technics SL-1200.
