Many aspects of the original SL1200 have been improved upon for the new models, resulting in a technically better performance, proven by its measurements in comparison to the older models.


One extremely useful feature of Technics' turntables has been the detachable headshell. This allows headshells to be swapped out with ease, meaning any number of different pre-fitted cartridges can be used for different types of records, like 78s, stereo and mono records (which work differently), or even just different cartridges to suit specific genres of music.

The SL1200GR's platter weighs 2.5kg, which is almost 1kg heavier than the previous SL1200 Mk5, increasing inertial mass and therefore speed stability. Extra strengthening ribs underneath the platter also increase rigidity.

A rare feature in turntables at this price point is the adjustable height of the arm, which can be manually adjusted without having to remove the tone-arm from the deck, as is usually the case. This is useful for use with different height cartridges, and also for very thick audiophile records.

RCA phono outputs allow a detachable phono cable, so higher quality or longer ones can be used.
