Despite all the mixed messages, the internet has come to accept that Panasonic is ceasing production of its iconic Techincs series of turntables, but did anyone expect them to stop stop selling them before the holiday? The company is currently only offering the SL-1200MK5 on their website and its back ordered.

As for the other models, they say: “Not Available Direct from Panasonic.”

It get worse for the 1200MK2… there’s not even a thumbnail image for that one.
