Technics SL-1200 MK2 different emblem

Post by Electroluver » Sun Feb 07, 2016 10:14 am

I purchased a couple Technics SL-1200 MK2 turntables and realized that the emblem is slightly different.
How come they changed the logo? I checked out google and couldn't find an explanation.

What are we looking at? The Technics logo / fonts look identical, is that what you're referring to?
I like vintage synths....

The font is correct, but the size is noticeably smaller on the right table.

They made mk2s for 15+ years, it's not unusual for minor things like font size to change in that time. It's highly likely that your two are just from different years.
