This very weird product from the Technics website was not mentioned in 
any of the press releases I've seen so far.
http://www.panasonic.com/consumer_electronics/technics_dj/prod_intro_sldz1200.asp

Also, it's interesting to see that Technics is only a subfolder under 
panasonic.com and not even a subdomain, let alone its own domain. It is 
also interesting to note that it is rechnics_dj and not just technics.

Cheers,

Richard
