A new model of Technics' SL-1200 turntable is expected to be unveiled later this month

Technics are expected to unveil a new turntable geared towards DJs later this month.

The announcement is expected to be made on Monday (January 7) at the Technics7th event in Las Vegas which will be live-streamed via Boiler Room and Japanese platform Dommune. It will see DJs such as Kenny Dope and Derrick May guesting - you can find more information here.

With the DJs enlisted to take part in the event and Technics' own description of the event as "the technic-sponsored club event", it's expected that the product will see the company shifting back towards the DJ market and away from the more expensive, high-end audiophile market that they have courted with recent models, such as the $20,000 SL-1200R.
