Specially tuned, unique Nagaoka
pickup cartridge provided
In developing the SL-1210GAE, Technics collaborated with Nagaoka, a highly-respected manufacturer with a global reputation for record styluses and pickup systems. Nagaoka boasts world-leading microfabrication technologies for difficult-to-cut materials and celebrates its 80th anniversary this year. The SL-1210GAE is supplied with the Moving Magnet(MM) type JT-1210 cartridge that was specifically tuned by a joint team of engineers from Technics and Nagaoka.
The JT-1210 employs a Boron cantilever and is specifically tuned and designed to offer superior performance in focus and detail in comparison to other Moving Magnet cartridges. It will only be available together with the SL-1210GAE turntable. The superlative sonic capabilities of the JT-1210 cartridge and SL-1210GAE Direct Drive Turntable ensure that this limited edition full package will be even more valuable and desirable.
