Welcome to this website which has everything you need for these legendary Technics SL-1200 & SL-1210 turntables to keep them up and running with original parts. Whether you prefer to get them serviced professionally or if you are competent to carry out your own repairs, this site is your one stop shop and I am certainly able to help. Honest service with a professional code of conduct by the UK engineering council ensures peace of mind when booking your turntables in for a service.
This site covers everything you need to get your original Technics SL1200 & SL1210 turntables working like new. Please note that I only carry out servicing for the mk2 to mk6 models which were discontinued in 2010 and no longer supported by Panasonic (who now own the Technics brand). For all other Technics models and hi-fi equipment you will need to contact a Panasonic service centre as I will not be able to help. Scroll down for further details.
Iconic status & Info:
The ever increasing value of the original models of these turntables is due to the precision Japanese manufacturing, and also partly due to the fact that they have true analogue VCO pitch control (with the exception of the Mk5G) which is what most DJs seem to prefer, and the most accurate when calibrated. (see the service section for more info). Also that they are on display at the London Science Museum, due to having an iconic status. All the more reason to look after your turntables!
The Service page is where you will find all the information on whats carried out, so you can look at booking your turntables in to be serviced and repaired professionally by a qualified engineer with a fast turnaround (even same day by appointment and spend the day here in Weymouth, Dorset). This will increase the value of your turntables even more especially if you choose to keep them original. The Parts Shop is where you can order parts online. And then theres the Tech Info page with various bits of information about these turntables.
Other Technics Products:
If you are looking for service enquiries relating to any other Technics hi-fi product then you will need to contact your nearest Panasonic Service Centre who may be able to help as I only carry out servicing on the models mentioned above which Panasonic no longer support. Please read the legal disclaimer at the bottom of this page. I have no affiliation with Panasonic. The official Technics website for their current products is: https://www.technics.com/uk/
I have been working as both an electrical and electronic engineer since 1990 where I completed a full indentured apprenticeship. Having worked on and managed on a vast range of projects, I have gained a lot of experience and tacit knowledge in both electrical and electronic engineering. I have also since gained recognition with the Institute of Engineering & Technology, and the UK Engineering Council.
I am now an independant specialist engineer who carries out work servicing and repairing these turntables. Having been a DJ since 1987 I can certainly vouch for these turntables and their performance. Feel free to check my DJ site www.richie-t.com
