Technics x Home Depot = Serious Hardware

January 29, 2009

Who would have imagined that home improvement could be so entertaining.  Apparently the folks over at Home Depot seem to believe high-end turntables should not be excluded from their lineup. 

Now while in the process of picking up a new power drill or supplies to caulk a tub, you can also throw a Technics SL-1210 turntable into the cart without losing a step.  Add a couple of slipmats to the package and you’re all set to go!

Head over to Home Depot for more info about this strange find.

Respect to B of JAAAHWS for the heads up!

That’s hilarious! What’s not hilarious is that Home Depot just announced that they’re having to cut 7,000 jobs as well as nix their high-end decor biz, Expo. Who’s left to man the ones-and-twos?
Those JAAAHWS teeth are awesome!

Seriously? That’s insane. They must be really hard up for business. There’s not even any synergies there….

The slipmats rule. But $699 for the decks? Who are they kidding?

This has been floating around for a while now. Wal-Mart also has 1200s and so does Newegg (though, that’s not as surprising).

This is news to me. A few years back I was hell bent on becoming a DJ and got deterred by the cost of turntables and maintaining the habit. Clearly, it’s not as expensive for turntables anymore. Nice info to keep in my back pocket. From the comments I see WalMart is on the turntable bandwagon, too. Who could’ve seen this day coming??

i hope this spawns some more cross over marketing.

$1 record bins at taco bell would be convenient.

I would be set!

… Sign of the times homies I guess the end is really near . Home Depot is selling 1200′s and Be$t Buy is selling records. it totally seems like the last act of a desperate dying man .
