    Curious to see the pricing. Will likely not be very affordable

    Better late than never! Hopefully they'll be up to par with the rest of the 1200 line.

    Want want want! Just to look at and admire :)

    The 1 1210 I have now although upgraded internally looks a battered mess. Thinks it's one from the late 70's!!

    isn't it a limited run of 1200 as well?

    Good luck getting one. Most of them will already have been vouched for and the remaining few will end up on ebay for two or three grand I reckon.

    That is only the limited edition version. The normal production model will be available in Autumn this year.

    I'd be seriously tempted if the standard run is a decent price!

    The thing I'm afraid of as well is pricing. Second hand market is really strong and most people who use Technics know 'em pretty well (or so I think). Hipsters will make up for a good amount of their sales cause of the renewed vinyl hype. Hope they didn't jump the bandwagon too late.

    I hope they did so I can buy one with much cheapness! :)

    "in UK currency then buying a pair will set you back over £5000"

    LOL

    I need to upgrade my turntable at some point, but I think I'll pass on $4000 for one of those

    Don't who did the maths there but they got the exchange rate the wrong way round. $4000 = £2739.20

    Plus they've got their facts even more wrong by quoting the price of the limited edition of the turntable, which costs $4000. The normal edition will be much cheaper.

    Is the $4000 for two or just one? If it's for one then a pair would indeed set you back almost £5500
    Good to know, but still probably unnecessary for me as I'm only using it for listening purposes
