Advantages: Pitch bend, faster startup than Technics
Disadvantages: Not as solid as an SL1200
Despite what people say, DLP-32's are actually quite good. Especially @ £160 each.
They have a pitch bend, adjustable pitch control, target light, very strong strobe light powered by 4 LEDs, tonearm height adjust, 1.8kg/cm2 torque, startup speed of 0.4 sec (Technics are 0.7 [i think])and the anti-skate goes up to 7.
If you use a Stanton Groovemaster cart on the provided headshell you can scratch to your hearts content.
SoundLab got a bad name some years ago with the old DLP-3 which wasnt very useful at all and since that people have stopped looking to them for a good deck. Lets face it, if Panasonic made a deck exactly the same as the DLP-32, people would buy it.
An excellent turntable for the bedroom DJ, but when you start playing professionally you really need Technics because chances are thats what the club will be using and you will need to be used to them.
In comparason, there is no questioning which is a better deck between a DLP-32 and an SL1200. Techs are very very well built, to a degree that no other deck can really match them. But for the money, the DLP-32 is your best bet.
