Fully specced turntable
Member Name: tarmacterrorist
Advantages: Now very cheap, great features, high torque motor & suprisingly reliable
Disadvantages: ........... They dont play CDs and vinyl isnt what it used to be........ :-(
The Gemini PDT 6000 turntable is a great deck with some good features that at the time when new were class leading. Seperate control of pitch & tempo (2 sliders on the deck) were available, along with large range pitch control (upto +/- 32%), adjustable start speed & brake speed, master tempo lock, quartz lock, reverse play & digital screen showing either the pitch or BPM. The output could either be phono or line level (such as CD player) and a digital output socket was available too.
This deck is a joy to use, with everything very neatly laid out so as to all be to hand and with a very high torque direct drive motor, handling records is made much easier too.
The extra functions are useful for both advanced beat mixing and turntablists and although its not quite as prestigious as the Technics, mine have never missed a beat in over 5 years. Its just a shame that vinyl isnt what it used to be and mine are now living in semi-retirement behind a set of CD decks.
Summary: Dont be fooled, this is a great turntable
