Technics and Lamborghini have collaborated to create a remarkable limited edition of the iconic record player, the SL-1200M7B. This special edition is a variation of the renowned SL-1200MK7/SL-1210MK7 DJ models from the SL-1200 turntable series, which have gained immense fame and admiration over the past forty years. In addition to its exceptional features, the SL-1200M7B includes a vinyl record featuring the powerful V12 engine sound of six Lamborghini super sports cars. To add to its exclusivity, the record player also comes with a slipmat and stickers adorned with unique designs.

The partnership was born out of the commonalities in the brands’ visions and approaches to sound design. They are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of technology with innovative ideas to create memorable experiences for their customers. Sound plays a crucial role in both brands, with Automobili Lamborghini’s engine noises captivating enthusiasts and Technics’ audio solutions providing a rich listening experience. Together, they strive to craft sounds that bring joy to their customers.

A distinctive turntable and distinctive sounds

The SL-1200M7B takes its cues from the SL-1200MK7 and SL-1210MK7 models, with a design that draws inspiration from the distinctive Y-shape found in Automobili Lamborghini’s design language. The vibrant colors available in orange, green, and yellow pay homage to the legendary liveries of the Italian car brand’s super sports cars.
