Our Premium Grade refurbished Technics turntables are the highest quality refurbished Technics decks available

Our Premium Grade refurbished Technics turntables are the highest quality refurbished Technics decks available. They make an excellent alternative to the now discontinued brand-new SL-1200s, and the condition of Premium Grade refurbished turntables is usually superior to those on the used market, which can vary widely in condition.

 About Premium Grade refurbished Technics

Premium Grade refurbished turntables are individually selected and put through an extensive inspection by experienced technicians - over 100 separate mechanical and electrical areas of each turntable are inspected and tested. Any parts that don’t pass the inspection are replaced with original Technics parts. Each turntable is usually fitted with a brand new tone-arm, pitch-slider, start-stop buttons, speed control buttons and on-off switch. Once the turntables have passed their inspection, they are re-calibrated to factory specification and the turntable is then given a detailed clean and polish before being offered for sale. A 12 month warranty is included with Premium Grade refurbished turntables covering technical defects and workmanship.

Although fully tested and serviced, refurbished turntables may display some minor surface marks or wear, due to the age of the individual turntable. These are generally only minor and cosmetic in nature, and we are happy to email photos of any of the refurbished turntables we have for sale (or they can be inspected in-store). Premium Grade refurbished turntables don’t usually include all of the original accessories, such as the headshell, dust cover, slip-mat and original box. The 45 adaptor is included. Our Premium Grade refurbished turntables are supplied in NZ voltage (230 V) with NZ plugs.


 Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro DJ Turntable 

The Technics 1200 has been the industry standard for 35+ years. The Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro DJ Turntable replaces the 1210M3D, making a couple improvements along the way: 1) the tonearm construction has been improved, which should lead to better skip resistance. 2) the brake adjustment is now more accessible. Simply remove the record and slipmat and it's possible to adjust the platter's breaking time with a screwdriver. Other than that, this is exactly the same as the M3D, which had these differences from the original MK2: 1) power switch is sunken to prevent accidental turn-off 2) includes a button which overrides the pitch control to zero (regular speed) 3) no "click" at zero on the pitch control 4) comes with a high quality Technics 2 piece slipmat 5) Dust cover does not include hinges.

The new improved features include:

* Head Shell Stand
* Slip Mat included
* CoveredPower Switch
* Anti Skating Weight 0g - 6g
* Arm Weight Scale for quick setting
* Break Speed Control
* Pitch Control Reset button


Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro DJ Turntable Highlights

The Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro DJ Turntable is the turntable that first established the type of high torque (motor strength), accurate pitch (speed control), quality tone arm (aids in skip resistance), and superior sound that is required by djs, and after 35+ years it is still the standard by which all other turntables are judged. Every other turntable that has come since has patterned their design off this legendary piece of equipment, and the reason is simple: the 1200 is about as close to perfection as you can get with a piece of machinery. It functions beautifully and the durability and construction are unmatched. The body and major components are made of steel. The bottom of the body is made of a dense rubber that eliminates distortion and feedback and adds extra weight for stability. Most of the basic parts are readily available and user replaceable.
Technics - the industry standard

Technics have been the industry standard for over 35 years with this turntable. It has been released and re-released over 9 times with different models and numerous other manufacturers have tried to compete with this deck, but above all, the Technics SL-1200 & Technics SL-1210 sit at the top of the list and have our highest recommendation. There is simply no replacement for a Technics 1200 turntable. Regardless of model number, Technics still makes the best turntable available, and they are used in 99% of all venues. Resale value is also very high. Some newer turntables may have more features, but this is the superior overall product. When you use a 1200, you know you are using the best.

The Technics SL-1200 and Technics SL-1210 turntables have shaped the world we know today. Featured in the London museum of science and technology they are regarded as a major stepping stone in how music is played and presented.
