Awesome Product!!

By Xodus from Idaho Falls on 02/15/2014


Pros:

Switchable From +/- 8 To +/- 16, Adjustable Start/stop Speed, Exceeded Expectations, Durable, Convenient, Blue Target Lights, Easy To Use

Cons:

There Is No Con

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best turntables on the market hands down. Seriously tough stuff. Had my M5G's since 2006, I've carried them all over the northwest for gigs in clubs/smokey bars/outdoor festivals and they never fail me. Even been rained on once while we hurried to cover them in a freak storm a couple years ago and they are still kicking.

This is an amazing turntable. I use it in a mobile D.J. setup and also in my home studio. You just can't go wrong with Technics turntables - but this one is the top of the line. It looks amazing in the dark club setting and has excellent response and sound quality.

Best Turntables. Period.

Experienced

Best Uses:

Home Studio, Professional Recording, Performances, Events, Mobile Dj

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

These turntables by Technics are the best available. They come with everything that is great about Technics and more in a classy, sleek package. I'll never regret purchasing these instead of just another pair of 1200's. These will last for the next few decades and look stunning. Everything is higher quality and just feels right.

I'm a part time DJ & i use the 1210's for my home studio. These are the cadillac of turntables. Digital pitch, easy brake adjustment and +/-16 pitch range are a plus. There are no Cons.

Awesome piece of hardware

By EnfinitI Verified Purchaser from Charlotte, NC on 09/04/2008


Describe Yourself:

Experienced

Pros:

Versatile, Consistent, Professional Features, Excellent Sound, Easy To Use

Best Uses:

Events, Amateur Recording, Professional Recording

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As always Technics produces a rock solid, bullet proof and great sounding product. You could stop a bullet with this thing and still be able to play your records. This thing will probably last you until the end of time if treated right. The new blue LEDs add a nice flair to the layout and the +16% pitch change is a nice bonus. Great piece of equipment and I'll never buy any other brand.

silky smooth functionally and sonically

By Albertasaurus Libratus Verified Purchaser from Ephrata,Wa. on 01/25/2008


Cons:

Dust Cover Not Hinged

Describe Yourself:

Experienced

Pros:

Looks Cool, Easy To Use, Well Designed Built, Clear Sound, Powerful

Best Uses:

Audiophile

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a true audiophile grade turntable, I wouldn't be happy with it otherwise. I've owned 2 belt drive 'tables and up until purchasing this unit, I would have spouted off the predictable audiophile gibberish about the inherent inferiority of direct drive units.

Definitely tool for Pro DJs

By DJ Pymp Verified Purchaser from Sao Paulo, Brazil on 09/17/2007


Cons:

Needs Bpm Counter, Limited Functions, Needs Actualized Effects

Describe Yourself:

Professional Dj

Pros:

Easy To Use, Powerful, Clear Sound

Best Uses:

Performances

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Technics is definitely the BEST when talking about Turntables, however the design itself is still the same for the past 30 years. A lot of functions could be added to it. Like Master Tempo, Reverse, BPM Counter, Digital Output, etc.
