Numark sets the mark

Numark seems to have secured themselves the title of the best company for starter DJs' and it is easy to see why. With over 30 years of experience, all of their products do the basics well and in the TT1650, that train of thought is continued.
First of all a couple of specifictaions to whet your appetite. It's direct drive, Pitch control with the toggle gives you a range of +/- 10% and two speed settings of 33.3RPM and 45RPM.
Stylistically the TT1650 is easy on the eye. Made of a hard wearing plastic with no sharp edges amd a metal turntable mounted off centre. It is the standard size for this type of equipment coming in at 7 1/2" x 5 1/4" x 18". Standard size in order to fit DJ booths. For those who want to DJ or just listen to their vinyl, it fulfills what is required of it. Startup is done with the use of a large 'play' button in the bottom corner and it starts quickly.
The swivel arm is a robust construction, durable enough to spend many hours of prolonged use. The cartridge that is included should be cleaned regularly to avoid skippage but delivers a very good sound. The controller knob is responsive and can easily change the pitch control with its 10 per cent variation.
As a stand alone unit or your first foray into the DJ-ing world this piece of kit does exactly what you would expect of it with no fuss. Quick and easy assembley at a relatively low cost cannot be argued with. On a personal note mine has worked without problem for quite a few years, and I know how to break stuff!!
Summary: An excellent entry level turntable for multiple uses.
