This is a Technics 1200 MK2 by KAB, in Silver. Plays 33, 45, and 78 RPM’s. Other mods are the TD1200 and Sonic Domes. Unit never used. Please inquire about our 78 RPM needles.
Detailed Item Description:
The Frequency Generator Servo Control on the '1200 produces the most consistent rotational accuracy of any known drive system. Unlike most belt drive systems, it is completely immune to both static and dynamic stylus drag.
The Tonearm bearings, polished to a finish of ± 0.5 microns, feature very low friction of 0.007 grams and the turntable body is a 3 section constrained layer non resonant affair. The Cast 5 Lb Platter system is damped both underneath and by the 1 Lb top mat.
For the tweakers, the Technics interconnect cable contributes 90 pF and the wire in the turntable and tonearm wand contribute 10 pF for 100pF total capacitance. So the interconnect rating is 2pF per inch or 24pF per foot. The cable on the M5G and GLD is abit thicker and claimed to be OFC fine strand copper. They also have gold plated connectors.
All Models employ the same build materials, platter and tonearm. The M5G and GLD have a dual range pitch control that is separately crystal controlled for unsurpassed accuracy and drift free performance. Also the M5G and GLD feature a static lateral tonearm damping system. This is for dj use and perhaps archival 78 RPM shallow grooves. It has no use in hi fi applications.
