Technics has confirmed the UK price for the limited edition version of its updated SL-1200 turntable.

As What Hi-Fi reports, the SL-1200 GAEs will cost £2,799 each, which it describes as “a fair conversion rate” on the $4000 quoted by the company earlier this year.

The SL-1200 GAE went on sale in Japan earlier this week without warning, with the initial run of 3000 selling out in under 30 minutes. Another 900 have been earmarked for international sales, but it’s unclear when or where they’ll be sold.

The non-limited edition SL-1200 will also be released later this year, with Technics hinting that an even more affordable model may be manufactured if there’s demand. [via The Vinyl Factory]
