Great entry level turntables

Advantages: The price
Disadvantages: Pitch slider is a bit slow to react
The 1st decent turntable I owned.I had a pair of these about 7/8 years ago and they were my 1st pair of 'proper' turntables.They use a direct drive motor to power them which is a must if you are really trying to do any kind of djing.What i liked most about this turntable was its sturdiness,it has a very solid feel to it.Unlike most turntables in this range you put your hand on the platter and it starts moving but the pd1 did not.This was not my only reason for buying them but it was a big plus as i felt comfortable taking them to various places knowing they could take a knock or to.
The overall look of the turntable is very stylish in my opinion,other turntables in this price range look well a bit cheap with big buttons and a very weak feel to them.this thing feels like it was built to last.I had them for about 2 years and never had any problems with them except replacement cartridges which is standard with any turntable. They held the speed of the vinyl very well.The pitch control was a little on the slow side it would take a while to react after I had moved the pitch control slider.Not a massive problem after you have had a few hours to get used to it. That was probably the only downside to it.It is very easy to take apart and clean.
I have seen that you can pick up a pair of these now for £250,which is a bargain when you compare that to a price of a single Technics 1210 deck which is about £500.They are defiantly worth buying as entry level turntables or if you are looking to just dj as a hobby, then these are probably the best ones in that price range.
