Technics has hinted at a major announcement for the 7th of January, 2019. Could the next iteration of the acclaimed turntable be on the market soon?

CES is taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada at The Venetian hotel  from the 8th – 11th of January. This event allows companies and innovators to showcase their latest products and advancements in technology. #Technics7th indicates that an announcement will be made a day before CES begins. Coincidence? Highly unlikely.

Technics is teaming up with Boiler Room Room to throw down an event for their big announcement. Featuring Kenny Dope , Derrick May, Cut Chemist and DJ Koco, the event will be live streamed from 8pm-11pm PST on Boiler Room TV. With products such as Phase and the Rane Twelves no longer requiring the need of DJ needles or tone arms, will Technics follow suite with new technology? Or should we expect something for the purist? With a turntable market that has recently seen a wave of new turntables at various price points, where will Technics lay? What do you think the announcement could be!? Drop a comment!
