Technics 1200 are dead!

November 2, 2010

Wheels of Steel

Panasonic confirmed today that they’re stopping production on the iconic Technics 1200 vinyl turntable.

In a statement issued to the Tokyo Reporter, Panasonic explained what we all suspected: that they’d ‘decided to end production mainly due to a decline in demand for these analogue products and also the growing difficulty of procuring key analogue components necessary to sustain production.’

The statement specifies a winding-down in production of the Technics SL-1200MK6 turntable, the SH-EX1200 mixer, and the RP-DH1200 and RP-DJ1200 headphones.

Although there are other Technics turntables on the market, it won’t be a surprise to see these discontinued too before very long.
