Technics SL1210 M5G


Since its introduction in 2003, many have called the SL-1210M5G the Grand Master of the 1200 line. In addition to the legendary Technics ruggedness and reliability, the SL-1210M5G boasts some killer one-of-a-kind features including an all-digital pitch control with a greater range, a specially constructed tone arm for improved skip resistance, an easy to adjust braking mechanism, and a black, brushed steel finish.


A totally digital pitch control means your adjustments stay true from deck to deck. The SL-1210M5G also sports a greater range than earlier models. Switch easily between ±8% and ±16%, and reset the pitch to 0 at the push of a button.

The improved tone arm is designed to increase skip resistance. Easy to adjust height settings and a built-in anti-skate adjustment of up to 6g make the SL-1210M5G great for scratching.

Powerful bass and clear sound thanks to High Grade OFC (Oxygen Free Coil) tone arm cable and high-grade stereo PHONO cables.

A die-cast aluminum body, heavy rubber base, and a lack of unnecessary components or empty space allow the 1210M5G to absorb unwanted vibrations that could otherwise interfere with the sound.

Instantly reset pitch to zero at the touch of a button.
