This is unconfirmed by Technics, but DJ equipment retailer DMC says that DJing on a turntable is officially dead – Technics is discontinuing the classic SL-1210 MK5 Direct Drive Turntable:
Panasonic (the manufacturer of Technics) have announced that production of the world famous Technics SL-1200 and SL-1210 DJ turntables will stop at the end of February 2010.
If you are interested in securing a pair of the legendary turntables before they are gone, we have a limited number left in stock at DMC.
Is traditionally DJing really dead? Let me know what you think!
