This is a press release by owner of the Technics brand — Panasonic, Japan –issued for the month of October, 2010
yet there are no respectable members of the press reporting this?
when something iconic enough to be displayed in the london science museum actually does cease to be produced, im confident an actual reporter will report it.

"Clarification came from Panasonic UK to squash rumours. And It’s not what you might think. So here goes – the 1200MK5 and 1210MK5 WILL be discontinued leaving the 1210MK5G as the top of the range and most definitely NOT discontinued. It never was a limited edition, just a flagship special edition model. And the 1200 and 1210 MK2 will continue as normal. So now there’s some distance between the MK2 and MK5G models instead having a middle MK5 deck to confuse matters. So it’s vanilla Technics or the more expensive piano black extra pitched blue light luxury model left in the range"

This is an old statement from the last time they were suppost to be discontinued.

Quote in OP seem's to be new

"Panasonic is ceasing production of the SL-1200MK6 model specifically, while other Technics turntable models will live on. Phew!"
