The Technics 1200 has long been revered by DJs for its high-torque, direct-drive platter that ensures flawless mixes and incredibly precise scratch performances. The last version of the turntable, the MK6, was released in Japan back in 2008. But today at CES, Panasonic announced it had revived the turntable with the…
This year, tons and tons of people will be bringing in the new year, not blasting tunes through a high-end audio system tricked out with all the latest Bluetooth tech and wifi capabilities, but rather with a $50 turntable.
