For the MK5G, Technics finally answered the cries of DJ's for a wider pitch adjustment and outdid themselves with both a +/-8% and +/-16% pitch adjustment. The numbers for the amount of pitch adjustment are now lit up with blue LED's and a second button next to the pitch reset button allows you to switch between the two levels of pitch adjustment. There are two columns of numbers, 2/4/6/8 and 4/8/12/16, and each press of the button switches between the two columns and illuminates the current setting. In keeping with the blue theme, Technics replaced the pop-up light with a blue LED (which can never burn out) as well. The strobe light, however, is still the standard red. The black finish isn't the usual flat black color used on the black 1210MKII. It's not completely visible in the pictures but the MK5G is painted in a speckled, glossy black automotive paint that superbly complements and completes this 30th Anniversary package.
