    Technics is Technics. Get whatever ones are the cheapest.

    1210s are black, 1200s are silver. That's it.

    And i think 1210's support different voltages, but unless you're dragging them around the globe it shouldn't be an issue.

    That's about as technical as it gets.

    I have a pair of black 1200's (not 1210's).... there must be a method to their naming madness.

    The prices are ridiculous on the 1200s now. Ebay is infested with BIN for $1,098 or $999 and CL is just as bad.
