    I just caught wind of this the other day as well. Beautiful, but playing right into the DJ crowd. Too bad - The SL-1500C was also introduced at CES the other day.

    Same materials? A simple rebranding? 5DA2C6E8-6686-49B7-AE4E-BCBC0A91E826.jpeg FB5B5EF5-AED7-4514-80DC-7005BD433E62.jpeg

    One is the real thing. One is a counterfeit. The counterfeit is deliberately intended to be identical to the real thing.

    The photo refers to lp120X..Remember...same company...same stand at CES..
    May be an intermediate step between low end Audio-Technica and hi end Model G or GR.
    The range now is complete.

    Audio Technica was showing their turntables at Technics CES stand?

    Are you suggesting Audio Technica and Technics are the same company or brand?

    References please.

    Yeah, and if Audio Technica was actually producing that video as an advertisement, rather than a random CES reporter and photographer, you can bet they would have chosen a different angle or edited Panasonic out.

    From whathifi.com

    "The Technics SL-1200 is back. Again. The famous turntable range, which launched as an audiophile record player but was quickly adopted by professional DJs, is back for 2019."

    Chamaruco isn't the first to insinuate that the Audio Technica counterfeit turntables are in the same table as the Technics. AT turntables are not designed or made in the same factory with the same parts with the same level of quality control as the Technics turntables, end of story, anyone that tells you otherwise is lying.

    ok now we do not exaggerate. I always thought the matsushita property was the same. today I have deepened and I understood that it is not.
    In my previous posts I did not ever troll or provoke. I didn’t start this morning.
    A thread about last techy has been closed yet. Let’s try to avoid it again,

    Exactly they look similar that is where it ends and wow and flutter and rumble are way higher on the AT turntables too the AT is just a far inferior copy.
