Info

At the London Science Museum, a Technics SL-1210 is on display as one of the pieces of technology that have “shaped the world we live in”

When the use of slip-mats for cueing and beat-mixing (and scratching) became popular in hip hop music, the quartz-controlled high torque motor system enabled records to be mixed with consistency and accuracy.

A primary design goal was for hi-fidelity, but having good build quality, flutter, and minimized resonance made the equipment particularly suitable for use in nightclubs and other public-address applications. Since its release in 1978, the SL-1200MK2 and its successors are the most common turntable for DJing and Scratching.
