Legendary audio tech company Technics has returned to the world of DJ turntables after nine long years in the wilderness, with the launch of the new SL-1200 MK7 at CES 2019 in Las Vegas.

The pricey Grand Class Technics SL-1200G was targeted at audiophiles, however, while the 1200's biggest fanbase had been mostly DJs who loved its high-torque, direct-drive platter.

Panasonic hasn't revealed when the Technics SL-1200 MK7 will be available or how much it will cost, but we'll update with those details when we know more. The EAH-F70N adds a wearing sensor that stops playback when you take them off, an ambient sound enhancer that allows the wearer to hear outside sounds just by touching the outside and hybrid active noise cancelling. They were followed by the SL-1200GR in 2017. This MK7 SL-1200/SL-1210 is the first new Technics deck to come with a more affordable price and with the DJ in mind (though we're sure it will appeal to plenty of people wanting to simply play vinyl, too).

There's a new coreless direct drive motor, which aims to eradicate any irregularity to the rotation, and components have been improved to match the high torque performance of previous generations.

The chassis is made from a mixture of aluminium and glass fibre, which is meant to minimize distortion caused by vibrations in loud environments. The turntable also features improved tracking, a new stylus illuminator, and a reverse play function to help DJs expand the breadth of their various play styles.

Elsewhere, the power and phono cables are now detachable.

It comes in a matte black design, with a choice of a red or blue LED light.
