Technics has revealed the next generation of its signature SL-1200 turntable.

In a series of cryptic posts the company has revealed imagery of what appears to be the MK7. Darkened visual representations of the new model leave much to the imagination. However, according to Technics, the new equipment is soon to be revealed on January 7th. The wait is almost over.

Technics’ turntables have pretty much been reserved for those with expensive taste, ranging from £1,200 to £2,700 per unit. While some speculate this could finally be a more affordable alternative, no one seems to be holding their breath.

“Upholding a Legacy. Creating a New Standard” — Technics captions the video below.

Lookout for more details on Monday.

NOTE: Pictured above is the SL-1210GAE.
