        Tactile vinyl-like touch with digital accuracy!

        The Technics SL-DZ1200 Digital Turntable, the world's first direct-drive digital turntable, looks--and more importantly feels--like spinning wax on a classic 1200. The distinctive slip surface on the 10" platter lets you spin, skratch, break, and otherwise work a track in a number of formats, including CD, MP3, and AAC. Along with its realistic vinyl feel and classic direct drive, the SL-DZ1200 also lets you store, playback, skratch, and loop sampled media from a removable SD memory card. About the size of a postage stamp, these cards store all your favorite samples, songs--even whole albums. And although they won't ever be able to replace vinyl, they're a whole heck of a lot easier to carry around than a crate of records.

        Classic Technics Direct-Drive Motor
        The Technics direct-drive system, which incorporates the platter as an actual component of the motor, was introduced with the SP-10 in 1969 as a way to eliminate the drag, inevitable breakage, and slow startup speeds associated with belt-driven players. With the reliable rotation, instant response, and long life you have come to expect from Technics analog models, the SL-DZ1200 boasts the same quartz crystal controlled direct-drive that has been the choice of professional DJs for over 30 years.

        Traditional Vinyl Characteristics
        It's easy to adjust to the SL-DZ1200. With adjustable break and startup speeds, a 10" platter, vinyl simulation effects and slip surface combined with its familiar look and feel, the SL-DZ1200 sounds and responds just like your analog decks.

        Cue/Cue Bank/Cue/Pads
        The SL-DZ1200 lets you find a cue point, save it and return to it at the touch of a button. 4 self-illuminating cue pads allow you to set, save, and seamlessly cue from exactly the point of your choice. It can memorize 50 sets (more if stored on an SD card) of 10 cue points as individual "albums." Each "album" also stores your settings for the 4 cue pads, loop points, auto cue condition and effects. As soon as your SD memory card or disc is loaded, your pre-saved settings are instantly available.

        Sample Pads/Sample Looping
        Sample pads allow for editing, overlapping, and playing back multiple samples. By sampling musical phrases, using the editing function to set the In and Out points, looping and mixing various samples, you can play the SL-DZ1200 like an instrument and use it to create original compositions.

        SD Memory Card
        The SD memory card is a removable, reusable device about the size of a postage stamp and is capable of holding hours of media. Using the SZ-CB8 SD Audio Recording Kit1, you can store your samples, scratches, breaks--even whole albums--and play an entire set using just a couple SD memory cards.

        Easy To Read Central Display
        The big, easy to read central display lets you know your exact BPM, elapsed time, and remaining time, as well as other track and play data. Adjust the display angle for easy reading in traditional or battle style play.

        Vibration Resistant Design
        A heavy, die-cast aluminum body, rugged CD mechanism, and double-spring insulator feet provide exceptional vibration resistance.

        Pitch Lock
        Change the tempo of a track without affecting its pitch throughout the DZ-1200's entire (±8-±50) pitch range.

        Forward-Reverse
        Switch from forward to backward play, and then back again without missing a beat. And you can adjust the precision to suit your needs--use the "Instant Change" button to make the switch instant, or flip it off to drag, stop, and spin-up the track.

        Free Wheel
        Not available on jog dial CD decks, this feature gives you the ability to free wheel or coast like on an analog deck with the push of a button.

        If discs, sampling data, and cue pads loaded quickly enough, the features score would have rated higher. I have to say that I am very disappointed in Technics by this unit. Making a CD turntable should have come easy to Technics. I purchased 2 Technics SL-DZ1200 nearly a year ago and they are virtually usless to me due to the current problems(issues) that face the unit. Issues that were unknown to customers before I purchased the unit. i.e. pitch-lock sound delay issues, choppy-skipping sounds that occur during playback at various speeds while the pitch lock is on, the inability to scratch high-pitched sounds, the silly folders that one has to create to play mp3 CD's and not to mention the inability to play SD card music via digital out. It's bad enough that the unit does not read CD-TEXT, or play MP3-CD's higher than 192kbps, and lacks pitch-bend capabilities, but at least that is known and given information. My problem is with the several unknown issue, mentioned above, that I(we) the custormer(s) was(were) un-aware of. I am surely a dissatisfied customer. And since I've had these units, I have discouraged other DJ's from purchasing this unit. And believe me, that a lot of DJ's, and I'm sure they have discouraged others from making the same mistake as well. If you only play CD's and like to watch pretty wheels spin than by all means by this unit. The drop in price over the last year of these units should be an indicator to the quality of these units. These are definitely not your fathers Technics.

        Ok their not bad, and if you asked me i would say they arn't bad.a bit pricy yes. At this time your saying "ok but weres the but?" here it is "BUT!" They arn't as good as the cdX by Numark. So ok, the tek 1200 is hands down the staple for the last 25 what evey years but in the last few minutes Numark has been pulling down some very cool designs and further devloping their craft aposed to tek who has seemed to do the exact same thing over, and over and over. (If it's not broken- you get it) I have not worked out with them other than a few hours but in that time i went with the Numarks. for REAL FEEL of a record and don't want to be cought up in fancy buttons then go with the cdX. The tek cd's abillity to scrach is so poor i couldn't even copy the scraches that dj jazzy jeff did on the track "i wanna rock" on the "Code Red" album. it's not vinal its some weird grippy plastic thing i don't know, but its not smooth in any way. HOWEVER the features are extreamly cool. memory card, looping, beat machine the cdx has the beat machine too. Over all it's a bit more devloped than the cdX. so i guess in the end you have to ask your self, do i want a few extra very cool features and extremly poor scraching with the tek~1200 or perfect scraching perfect looping and the ability to auto blend songs with the cdX. if your a techno dj go with these, a bit smaller the look is very cool and an over all cool space package. BUT if your like my self a scrapy Italian from Chicago who grew up with HIP HOP buy the cdX's, all you need is a 12' spinning platter feel and your mixer and don't need TO be messing with some weird feature in the middle of you set. what ever you decide go with it and run cuz their not cheap.dj Sandiego

        Vinyl replacement? Not even close...

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        I have been mixing trance/HH for over 5 years now and just "upgraded" from pioneer cdj800 to the tech SL-DZ1200. The look is amazing; stylish, flashy yet not tacky. The features are great too, although I'm not too big on them. What I was looking for in these is a vinyl replacement, but sadly am very dissapointed. The slip-mat is very digital and extremely sensitive compared to vinyl, making it very difficult to make minor adjustments. Unless you beat-match using only the fader (which is very nice in feel) stay away as the table is too touchy for precise mixes. Bottom line: I prefer my pioneer cdj-800 hands down for "feel" reasons alone...if you want lotsa options/extras but arent concerned for beatmatching (like jukebox dj's) then these are for you.

        The Technics SL DZ1200 Digital Turntables are by far my CD deck of choice. I tested all other choices like Numark, Denon, and Pioneer, & Technics is the deck that hands down fits my needs perfectly. I think many people feel the Pioneer CDJs are "easier" to use and that attitude most likely is coming from people with little experience spinning with vinyl or spinning on Technics SL1200's. I love being able to setup CUE points on my CDs. It makes prepping before a set take a little longer, but it is the perfect replacement to not being able to needle drop like you do on your favorite records.

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        I'm a vinyl purist, but this is the one invention I've seen that might make me change my mind. It's unbelievable, and it is a good way to round out an otherwise all-vinyl setup.

        Decent

        By H-Town

        from Houston, TX

        This table is decent, but it comes in last place compared to the Numarks, Pioneers, and Denons. They look beautiful, but "you can't judge a book by its cover". The scratching is VERY digital, and there is delay. It doesn't feel good at all.

        Is it worth it?

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        I checked out the this new toy out a couple of days ago. It looks great and has a very close to vinyl feel (probably the closest aside from the new numark). Some cool features, such as adjustable stop brake. Quality is excellent enough to wear the Technics name. The scratch sounds more digital than some of the other players in its class. It's a good player. Very innovative. Even though it's technics' first of its kind, I think they could have done just a little more, considering the competition. Oh yeah, it's rather expensive, so save those pay checks. Overall, it can roll with the best of them.

        Still On Top!

        By djsgroove

        from Los Angeles

        Purchased these last week and I can't stop using them! I am seriously considering converting everything I have on vinyl onto disc! Some say other companies have the market cornered on PRO CD decks but isn't that the same thing they have BEEN saying for years about 1200's? Get a pair!

        from Wintersville, OH

        When I tried these out I wasn't too impressed, but that changed. They have awesome features that are great for messin around and spinnin some techno or just playin up a song at a gig. Compared to the Numark CDX it has easier performance. Its small size makes it easier to handle and still perform just as well. I would most definitely suggest that you get a pair of these because you'll need them.

        Best of the best

        By DJRT

        from South Florida

        This is by far the best DJ CD player on the market. it is so close to mixing vinyl, i could hardly believe it myself. i only had to make minor adjustments in my mixing habits to effictivly use these. (give yourself an hour mixing on them, and it will be completely natural). The quality is unbelievable. what you would expect from the 1200 branding. they are a bit pricy, but the best always costs. you don't get a ferrari for what a ford costs. save up!

        As far as I'm concerned its the best digital turntable out. Very mobile, and the cards are the best. Don't have to carry alot of music with you.
