For the first time in nearly a decade, Technics is adding a new standard turntable to the iconic SL-1200 line. Built around a coreless direct drive motor to eliminate "cogging," the MK7 is even more stable than the SL-1200s that helped it earn its legendary status amongst DJs. The new table also adds some subtle but welcome new features — including the ability to play in reverse and new motor electronics that give DJs improved scratching options. The new MK7 has an all-black matte chassis and tonearm that are both made from a mix of fiberglass and aluminum to reduce vibrations and skipping - a huge bonus for club environments. Available starting this May.
