Technics Custom SL-1200MK2 Audiophile Turntable


Please note that these 'tables are custom made to order and take about 3 weeks to ship.  Please contact us via if you'd like a color other than white.

While the original SL-1200MK2 is a wonderful turntable, we made some modifications to make it better suited for a HiFi system. 

This is not a new concept as Technics recently discontinued the SL-1200MK2, made a few tweaks, and then re-released it to the HIFI market at three times the original cost...

We started with an SL-1200MK2 (which many believe was the sweet spot for this model), fully tested and serviced it, and replaced any electrical components that were showing any signs of age. 

We then serviced and tuned the tonearm to perfection, and installed a fabulous new Sumiko Blue Point No. 2 MC (Moving-Coil) Cartridge

We then fitted some very high quality machined aluminum suspension feet to give it a bit more isolation.  We finished the top plate in a white gloss powder coat to make it look a bit more distinct, and replaced the original dull orange incandescent strobe with super bright white LED's. 

Underneath the platter we installed a user controllable RGB LED strip to give it some subtle glow, perfect for those late night darkened room listening sessions.  It's currently set to white which is subtle and coherent, but can be changed to any color you desire with the supplied remote control. 

Finally, we changed out the factory RCA cables with a higher quality name brand set with a bit of extra length so you can position the table in an optimal spot.  

The table looks like new and is set to work another 30 years. 

We are including a cover that sits on top (not hinged) which is a bit worn, but will do the job if you must use one.  

*The cork mat and record weight in the pictures are not included in this listing.
