      The TTX1's win for me!

      The Newmark TTX1’s are the 1st of their kind, they are an inspiration to the way dj’s work and will work, newer dj’s will disagree with me because they are probably using cd turntables, but TTX1’s are the number 1 DECKS in the world and for old skool dj’s I would recommend these highly.


      If you’re an old skool fan then it might be better going for the 1210’s because techinics have always been the standard in the industry, however if you want the futuristic decks then I recommend the TTX1’s.
      Other people will say that the techinics 1210’s are standard and that you should get these, because if you are looking to practice then in most arenas you will use 1210’s, however if you can mix on TTX1’s then you can mix on 1210’s if you go straight from on to the other then you can handle the 1210’s easier. I have mixed on both sets of decks and I find the TTX1’s much easier to use. Everybody can mix on 1210’s but set yourself a challenge can you mix on TTX1’s??


      A bit of information about the TTX1’s, they are direct drive turntables which is essential for advanced dj’s, they also have an exchangeable straight or tone shaped arm, I find the straight arm easier to use not that there is much difference! They also have a small light on which is handy in dark nightclubs for cueing up your records; I used to have some other newmark decks which did not have this light, every time I started mixing I could not see where I was cueing up my record. As standard you have a 33/45 and now 78 RPM with a +/-10, +/-20 and +/-50% pitch range, which you might not need but sometimes it’s just funny to mess around with it, it’s also useful for speeding up or slowing down some beets to mix with.


      As well the TTX1’s have a digital multi directional pitch, which displays bpm and rpm settings. Another feature is an automatic reverse feature button which reverses the track automatically; this is good for getting some lethargic beets, which are good for mixing, especially down tempo stuff.


      The down sides of the TTX1’s are as follows: The TTX1’s are very heavy, they weigh much more than other decks, also the TTX1’s are not very good decks to scratch with, the tone arm is not a great scratching arm, I have used much better.


      In retrospect the TTX1’s are great decks for advanced dj’s, these are not good decks for beginners, my advice would be to start elsewhere, try newmark decks but when you are an advancing dj, please purchase these decks over the 1210’s because I think as a dj they help your mixing skills much more than the 1210’s do.

      Thanks for reading

      The TTX-1 turntable boasts a super-high torque motor, moveable pitch control, and easily interchangeable S or Straight tone-arms. We can confidently say that this is one of the few tables that actually outperforms the infamous 1200 in torque, technology, and features.
