Technics, a brand owned by Panasonic, has managed to create a direct-drive turntable that makes use of innovative new materials and a redesigned motor, all put together by using advanced and high-tech production techniques that explain and justify the steep $4,000 price tag.

Dubbed the SL-1200G, this direct-drive turntable makes use of less plastic than its venerable predecessors, with much of this attributable to the use of a futuristic cordless direct-drive motor. What's great about this construction technique is that it makes this direct-drive turntable heavy-duty in performance but not in size, enabling you blend the best of both worlds.

This is one high-tech turntable that may indeed cost a very hefty packet but is well worth the outlay given its light weight and reliable functioning.
