Technics, known for its audio expertise, has revealed a thrilling collaboration with the prestigious Italian sports car manufacturer, Automobili Lamborghini. The result? The unveiling of the Technics SL-1200M7B turntable, a special edition set to captivate enthusiasts and collectors alike. Drawing inspiration from Lamborghini's iconic designs and Technics' legendary turntable technology, this partnership promises a fusion of innovation and style.

The SL-1200M7B is an evolution of Technics' celebrated SL-1200MK7/SL-1210MK7 DJ models, boasting enhancements that reflect Lamborghini's distinctive flair. Central to its design is the influence of Lamborghini's renowned Y-shape, evident in the turntable's striking plinth pattern.

Available in three iconic Lamborghini colors—Arancio Apodis, Verde Shock, and Giallo Athon—the Technics SL-1200M7B pays homage to the brand's most revered liveries.

However, the collaboration extends beyond aesthetics. Purchasers of the Technics SL-1200M7B will be treated to exclusive collectibles, including special edition slipmats and stickers. The pièce de résistance? A picture disc vinyl featuring the captivating engine and driving sounds of six Lamborghini super sports cars, from the classic 400GT 2+2 to the cutting-edge Revuelto.

Technological prowess meets audio excellence in the SL-1200M7B. Its coreless direct drive motor ensures stable rotation, free from cogging, while delivering powerful torque. The turntable's highly sensitive tonearm faithfully traces the intricacies of vinyl grooves, promising an exceptional listening experience. 

With a two-layer platter structure and a rigid cabinet equipped with damping insulators, vibrations are minimized, which should provide pristine sound quality even in demanding conditions.

Functionality is paramount, catering to both audiophiles and DJs. Adjustable starting torque and braking speed, along with pitch control and reverse play functions, offer flexibility and precision. Additionally, a stylus illuminator featuring a long-life LED ensures optimal visibility in various environments.

Technics SL-1200M7B Key Features: 

  • Coreless direct drive motor achieving stable rotation free of cogging and powerful torque 
  • Highly sensitive, yet robust tonearm accurately reading the signal engraved in the record groove 
  • Two-layer structure platter with improved vibration damping performance 
  • High rigidity cabinet and high damping insulator for thorough shut-out of all vibrations, even during harsh operation conditions 
  • Starting torque/brake speed adjustment function 
  • Pitch control function enables accurate and stable pitch adjustment 
  • Reverse play function expands the flexibility of DJ playing styles 
  • Stylus illuminator featuring a high-brightness and long-life LED

The Technics SL-1200M7B turntable is slated for release in July 2024, with a retail price of $1599.98 in the US and £1,399.99 in the UK. While the collaboration with Lamborghini adds a premium to the cost compared to the standard SL-1200MK7, enthusiasts may find the unique design and collectible extras well worth the investment.
