For a DJ, there are a few pieces of equipment needed and wanted for their ideal setup. None of this, the lighting, speakers, cables, software etc, means anything unless it’s all brought together by a quality turntable. No one makes turntables like Technics, a favourite of DJs worldwide.
Technics SL 1200MK5
The 1200MK5 turntable by Technics is a top of the range model that combines the features that have made the brand favourites of many DJs with some new toys to keep it ahead of the competition. This is for the professional DJ who values and cares for the music he/she makes.
The 1200MK5 has been around for a few years now, and it is still being used due to its quality in terms of sound, reliability and ease of use. Many users claim that these turntables never break, so they are a great investment for the professional DJ.
Technics SL 1200MK2
The 1200 range of turntables from Technics more or less changed the way many DJs used their instruments. The reliability of the series is renowned, the precision of the mechanical parts is second to none, and it has been used in almost all styles of music, from hip hop to rock flavours and so much in between. While the 1200MK2 may be a little outdated now when compared to the newer models, it is still an awesome product and an amazing turntable. As with the 1200MK5, this is for the professional who see their turntable as more than just a machine, but as a way to live.
