Technics SL-1210 MK7

In a world where you can DJ to a club full of ravers using nothing but an iPad and a Spotify Premium account, a hulking pair of mechanical turntables must seem awfully quaint to some. But this isn’t just any old deck: it’s a Technics SL-1210. Ever since the 1970s this legendary turntable range has been instrumental in the worlds of hip-hop and dance music, with DJs such as Cut Chemist and Kenny Dope swearing by them. What ain’t broke doesn’t need to be fixed, so the first new model since 2007 will be familiar to anyone with experience on the wheels of steel. The direct-drive motor has been upgraded to improve stability and torque, with a new reverse playback function that should help to find Satanic messages hidden in your records, while the pitch adjuster now offers full digital control. Chuck in a brighter stylus light and customisable LED strobe for measuring the platter speed, and you’ve got a turntable that’ll make laptop DJs look like the uncultured chancers that, deep down, they know they really are.
