Shocked Mad
I can't believe this. I am at al oss for words. I say if panasonic does this then I will boycot them. Won't buy so much as a cell phone from them. I have already started calling Panasonics u.s. offices. Save the SL1200!
I realize that technology moves on and that more and more are going purely digital, but man, this is really disappointing.
I have cdjs, laptop, accounts with itunes/beatport etc. but the 1200s have always been the heart of my rig! Its like Gibson discontinuing the Les Paul, or Fender discontinuing the Strat. F-this I want to punch someone, Djs have been sporting techs for 35 years they Are an icon, who gave Panasonic the permission to ditch one of our oldest, dearest a most reliable pieces of kit for the dj. Honestly I wouldn't care if Panasonic ditched every other piece of gear under the Technics name, hell
get rid of some of the sl1200 models but at the very least leave the MK2 1200/1210/
or the Mk5, something!

Capitalism, maximise profit.

Nothing to worry about, the Chinese clones are on the way.

I am waiting for the human clones from China. The real-deal.
