So yea, that Technics SL1200mk7… oh boy

I remember NAMM 2005 very well. I had reviewed the SL-DZ1200, and gave it a less than glowing recommendation. At the time, Skratchworx was about the only game in town, so getting the cold shoulder and subsequent freeze-out from the brand over that review was kind of a big deal.Even though the DJ media world has gotten larger, writing this I’m getting flashbacks. When the new DJ-oriented 1200 was announced, I was excited. While...

The Reloop RP-8000 MK2 — another day, another black turntable

Like London buses, you wait years for black turntables to come around the corner (the Mixars LTA and STA missed the Worxlab rotation) and then two appear at the same time. Yesterday it was the new Technics SL-1210 MK7, and today out of nowhere comes Reloop’s bid for turntable dominance with the next level RP-8000 MK2. All those bells and whistles you’d hoped for on the MK7 are most definitely in place on the...

NAILED IT: Here’s the official word on the Technics SL-1210 MK7

Back in 2010, the DJ depression kicked when it was announced that Technics was wrapping up production of their venerable SL-1200 and SL-1210 turntables. Yet despite claims to the contrary, DJing did not end, music continued to be played, and people still danced. And here we are eight years later, with the re-introduction of the Technics SL-1210 MK7, a unit that was teased by Technics, and that we more or less nailed before most...

Technics teases on Instagram — forensic Photoshopping ahoy

Investigative journalism is traditionally in the vein of shaking the grapevine to see what falls out, and then following up leads. But in the digital age of stuff being posted on social media, it’s often a matter of digging into websites to almost brute-force find hidden pages, or in my case using Photoshop to forensically uncover otherwise hidden details. So when Technics posted a mysteriously dark image in their Instagram channel relating to their...

Technics7th DJ event at CES 2019 — new product coming?

Much like Bruce Lee on the cover of a martial arts magazine, dropping Technics into a headline on a DJ site is a guaranteed click fest. So you’d think that being in the business of needing eyes on our words, we’d inappropriately crowbar the legendary brand into the most tenuously linked stories. I swear that a ridiculous “five best DJ hats to wear when playing on Technics” listicle would garner serious traffic.But after a...
