Question about Technics SL-1200M3D Turntable

1 Answer

I don't know if i should go with the sl 1200M3D or the Sl-1210MK2.......im getting a set of two...for about the same price for both models........MK2 looks newer and used less......the M3d seems to have been used more and has a lot more scratches. I started mixing like six months ago on just some Dj starter kits and now I would like to get some quality Decks and practice on the industry standard brand..I also want to be able to connect my decks to Serato.....Does anyone have any advice on which decks I should go for?

The only difference is the Mk3 has a pitch lock switch - other than that they are the same.

I have a technic sl 1200 m3d with a broken tone arm, which arms are compatible?


HELLO

Have a look at Originlive on the net. They do an armboard which should fit your turntable easily and enable to put a Rega RB250 or RB300 arm on your machine - it will improve audio quality too!

Technics 1210 mk2 motor problem


Depends on if it's a belt drive turntable or direct drive.
If a belt one, there will either be a speed adjuster on the top of the motor, or one on a PC Board. And yes apart from setting the speed, it as straightforward as taking the old one out and wiring the new one in.
The direct drive, will also have to be adjusted for speed too.

How old is my Technics SL 1210 Mk2


Here's some information for you. Since your unit is a SL1210MK2, it may be harder to determine the age of the unit:

It is possible to tell the year (and the month) when the SL-1200 was manufactured from the serial number on the back or bottom of the turntable. SL-1200 serial numbers are in two different formats, depending on the date of manufacture. It isn't exactly possible to determine the decade in which the SL-1200 in question was manufactured, as the serial number contains only the last digit of the year. If the year digit is 8, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1978, 1988 or 1998. If the year digit is 0, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1980, 1990 or 2000. One rule of thumb is that old-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1970s and 1980s, while new-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1990s and beyond.
Old-format serial number: NHOJF20765 (SL-1200 manufactured 1982)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured. These serial numbers contain no indication of the month of manufacture. It should be noted that serial numbers in this format contain no letters following digits.
New-format serial number: GE4FB001154 (SL-1200 manufactured June 2004)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured, while the month of manufacture is indicated by the letter following it. Months are coded as letters between A and L inclusive; A indicates January, B indicates February, and so on.
In addition to the above, all the SL-1200MK2s from the 70's and early 80's have a 4 inch diameter plate where the RCA and ground wires enter the chassis in the rubber base of the unit. The later models have a smaller hole through which the wires enter the unit.

SL1210 MK5G PITCH REMOVAL ?


The fader for the M5G's are the same as for the MK5's. As for cleaning, you will have to do it like you did with the MK2, and go from underneath.
