Technics had some new product announcements that might interest vinyl enthusiasts. The SL-1200 Mk7, which looks like it is targeted at DJs (reverse-play function, LED can be set to illuminate in red or blue, etc.). Tentative price: US$1,199 per Michael Fremer (https://www.analogplanet.com/conten...gant-sl-1500c-coreless-direct-drive-turntable): https://www.technics.com/us/news/20190107-sl-1200mk7/ SL-1500c, which appears to be more "entry-level" (comes with Ortofon 2M Red cartridge, a well-known entry-level cart, built in "phono equalizer amp" - I assume that's a built in phonostage?). Tentative price: US$1,399 per Fremer (see link above). https://www.technics.com/us/news/20190107-sl-1500c/ No word on where these will be manufactured. Looks like Technics is going all out for vinyl!
