Renowned for its introduction of the revolutionary direct-drive turntable, Technics holds a special place in the DJ world. Founded in 1965, the Japanese brand has delivered an array of products from loudspeakers to CD players, but it is for its turntables that the company is most celebrated.
Technics are probably revered in the DJ world mainly for the legendary SP-10 turntable from 1970. The world’s first ever direct-drive model, the SP-10 shook up the audio world and set the standard for the next generation of turntables.
This was then followed by the SL-1200 in 1972, which was the first in a line of Technics belt-drive turntables that enjoyed impressively stable rotation. The SL-1200 and its successors are now firmly embedded in DJ culture, with many imitators popping up over the years.
