Panasonic's Technics Turntables Discontinued?

Bye Bye Turntables... The Digital Age has taken over...

According to the Tokyo Reporter, Panasonic is pulling the plug on the Technics Turntables that every DJ has used one time or another (I've actually learned to DJ on these).

“Panasonic decided to end production mainly due to a decline in demand for these analog products and also the growing difficulty of procuring key analog components necessary to sustain production,” the company said in statement issued to The Tokyo Reporter.

The vinyl purists weren't enough to save analog from the digital age. It's sad to see it go, but then again I haven't used vinyl in quite some time. Especially since vinyl is damn expensive... and heavy.
