Technics SL-D202 Direct Drive turntable

Technics SL-D202 Direct Drive turntable


Made in Japan in 1981, this superb turntable followed the Technics SL-D2 in the Technics lineup. The SL-D202 is a semi-automatic "front-control" direct-drive turntable. It has many cosmetic similarities with the SL-B202, except that the SL-D202 is the direct drive version utilising the Technics high-torque “motor.


It comes with built in strobe and pitch control, and has a super quick start-up time making it popular with DJs.


It is being sold at a major discount due to the cosmetic issue in the photos - functions perfectly fine as is though.  This turntable has been recently serviced and is ready to spin for you.  It also comes with a new stylus and is fully setup in all repects.
