My DJ Technics Turntable SL-1200's Experience

Updated on May 22, 2018

All about the Technics DJ turntables

It was back in the 70's when it all started...

I remember as a kid I found myself listening to the music on the radio often, whether it was top 40, rock and roll, disco, ballets, etc.

And I remember the cassette tapes...yes, I remember it was so cool back then. The times when my older brother took me riding or when going to places... he would flip in a cassette tape and the Disco music started playing. I really enjoyed listening to Disco back then as I realized when the music actually started to blend into each other as the music fades right into the next.

The music, mixed in a way to create the energy on the dance floor along with using the melodies to complement each other, just made you want to dance all night long. I was too young to go to the clubs back then, but that's how I imagined it to be. The power of the DJ, I thought! Imagine Studio 54 !

I began buying records...the 12 inch singles with extended dance versions and became addicted to them. One day I saw a flyer at a record store offering classes on how to DJ. I signed up right away and took some classes and eventually got my two turntables and a mixer.

I highly recommend the Technics 1200's SL-MK2, one of the originals, I started using back in the day. I still have them from the 1980's and it still works (with some maintenance, care , and upkeep) of course.

As featured here above, the Technics comes in Black. A collectible for sure ! Technics has always made improvements over the years and has maintained a respectable reputation as the leading DJ turntable makers throughout the decades since the 1970's. If you love and still use vinyl, this is "THE BEST" to have! It is strong, durable and built to last. Unfortunately today, they stopped making these DJ turntables and are hard to find.

So if you are a die hard fan of Technics or want to become a superstar DJ, this is one of the models to work with when vinyl is concerned. And I must say that before you purchase...these turntables do not come with DJ stylus or needles. They need to be purchased separately because Technics do not make them. So if you're ready... and got that become a DJ...go on and get yourself a pair of Technics and get started on a career in the DJ World. It will never DIE !

* The above turntable is rare and great if you're looking into buying as a collector or as a fan of Technics.

Have you ever tried using any of the Technics 1200's Dj turntables

      Yes it is. From the very beginning, everyone had to have one if they could afford them.
