Exclusive Digital Pitch Control

A totally digital pitch control means your adjustments stay true from deck to deck. The SL-1210M5G also sports a greater range than earlier models. Switch easily between +/-8 and +/-16, and reset the pitch to 0 at the push of a button.

High Quality Sound

Powerful bass and clear sound thanks to High Grade OFC (Oxygen Free Coil) tone arm cable and high-grade stereo PHONO cables.

Improved Tone Arm Construction

The improved tone arm is designed to increase skip resistance. Easy to adjust height settings and a built-in anti-skate adjustment of up to 6g make the SL-1210M5G great for scratching.

Easy To Adjust Breaking Speed

It’s simple to set the breaking speed to suit your liking with the SL-1210M5G. After removing the slip mat, all it takes is a few twists of a screwdriver to go from a slow winding down to an instant halt, or anywhere in between.

Exclusive Long Lasting Blue Stylus Light

Super long lasting blue LED pitch indicators and stylus illuminator are exclusive to the SL-1210M5G.
