Disadvantages: Belt driven (some people dont like this)
Ah, the good old TT1610's. I cant say they are a bad set of turntables, in fact I still have mine and use them regularly. I was looking for a cheap set of turntables to replace my old ones, and eventually found these in a shop close by. Unfortunately, I couldn't buy them separate from the Numark mixer, so I got that too, as a set.
Luckily, I wasn't disappointed. The turntables themselves are cheap enough, yes, but don't let that put you off (As a set with the mixer, needles and slip mats, it set me back about £170 for the lot). Although belt driven, you will get a lot of fun out of these babies.
Alright, so they're your standard turntables, easy to change the turning speed and rpm from 33 to 45, not difficult to repair if you need to (one of the belts came off and mine, and as confused as I was, it didn't take long for me to fix. About a minute and a half, literally). As well as being reliable, they don't look half bad either. Ok, so they aren't very "slim", but this just makes them a bit more funky, does it not? The sexy aluminium raised platters for the slip mats, clear as day power switches simple layout. The "S-shaped" tone arm adds to that funky look.
Combine them with an awesome mixer and you have yourself a sight to behold.
Summary: A good spend for skint DJs
