Hydrawire Delivers Innovative Technics SL1200 Cable Upgrade

Published Jul 28, 2005

The days of retrofitting SL1200 series Technics Turntables with replacement cables and RCA jacks of questionable quality are over. Hydrawire announces their most recent product offering DJ's and audiophiles a much needed solution.

In one convenient unit, Hydrawire's kit combines all of the parts necessary to replace Technics SL1200 series stock cables. The Hydrawire kit comes pre-assembled and ready to solder in. Nothing but the highest quality components and genuine Technics parts are used. It is equipped with cables that outperform and outlast the anemic stock cables by a factor of ten.

Canare crimp RCA connectors are used for the ultimate in destruction-proof performance. They are designed to resist 150 lbs. of pulling force before separating from the cable. The full metal shell around the shield contact means no accidental crushing if stepped on. As an added bonus, the Techflex braid covering the cables keeps the ground wire hidden and tangle-free. The ground wire can also be removed easily if desired.

The most important fact: our cables remain the same from the internal circuit board all the way to the RCA connectors themselves. This ensures a consistent, proper electrical signal direct to your mixer. The sound of the turntable is never compromised.

The development of the Hydrawire kit marks the end of cable shorts and badly done retrofits that might devalue your turntable. This cable replacement/upgrade kit is now available at select dealers or worldwide direct at

Thomas Loos, company President stated:
“What began as a repair for a friend turned into something that can benefit anyone who owns the venerable Technics 1200 turntable. While Panasonic/Technics has attempted to address shortcomings of the stock cables in recent years, there was still much room for improvement. This cabling kit is indestructible and sounds great. It's worthy of the Hydrawire name.”
