KAB Electro-Acoustics / Technics SL-1200MK5 "Audiophile Standard Turntable" - Direct Drive and Highly Modified


Please note that while we recommend the pictured Stanton "DJ Style" Phono Cartridge, it's not included. At the bottom of this listing you'll see an option to customize your fully calibrated and installed phono cartridge.

This is a *highly modified* SL-1200MK5 "Audiophile Standard Turntable" modified by KAB Electro Acoustics.

This is not your standard SL-1200 "TEC-12" 'table...  It's also several steps above in modifications than our in-house custom (and made to order) SL-1200MK2 best selling offering. 

So if you love the SL-1200 than you'll go crazy over this version!

KAB made this audiophile grade turntable long before Technics decided to re-lease it. Not only does it have more upgrades than the Technics, but its a fraction of the cost!

In perfect condition without a scratch or signs of use.

The KAB Audiophile Standard Turntable upgrades include:

• Outboard power supply
• Suspension feet
• 1/4" Rubber Mat
• Tonearm damper
• Cables
• New Technics Headshell
• Plus more...

More information about the MK5 courtesy of Wikipedia:
"Released on 1 November 2000, has a silver finish like the MK2, increases the range of anti-skate settings from 0–3 grams-force (0–30 mN) to 0–6 grams-force (0–60 mN).

It has a white LED target light (previous versions only had an incandescent bulb).

Current MK5 models have a removable lid with magnets as opposed to the MK2 and MK3 removable hinged lid. Available as 120 volt model for the North American market.

The MK5 is the last 1200 model to retain an analog pitch control."
