Last year, Panasonic announced that they were in the works to bring back one of the most loved turntable, the Technics SL-1200 model. Well they did and they are already SOLD OUT!
After being discontinued since 2010, the love for vinyl has truly grown. With more and more people and especially DJs wanting that old school feel back when it comes to music, the Technics SL-1200 seemed to be a very hot commodity many would want to have again. To the point, on its release, the turntables sold out in just 30 minutes!
With just 300 of the stark aluminum, limited edition turntables created, Panasonic priced the new Technics SL-1200 at $3,300. What may feel steep to some, true vinyl lovers who could afford them waisted no time on getting them when they came up for grab.
The Technics SL-1200 is stated to be one of the most important turntables in history. After the unexpected sell out of the turntables, there is discussion that 900 more may be available to purchase. Also you may want to be on the lookout vinyl lovers who may want to break their bank account, but a more affordable version is said to be released later this year.
But if you are looking to Buy the Technics SL-1200. For the time being, you’ll have to wait, or probably pay a pretty penny if someone decided to auction one-off on Ebay.
