There's some chatter on the internets about a move by Panasonic that will end production of the iconic Technics 1200 line of analog turntables. The guys over at Nylvi are on top of it and have it looks like the quotes may be applicable to the Australian market only.
“It is a sad day today but due to low sales globally in analogue turntables a decision to stop production has been made on Technics Turntables. For Australia this means we will receive our last shipment in March”
- Ian North, spokesperson, Panasonic Australia
With no official press release from Panasonic, there's no way to confirm. What do you think?
