Amazing vinyl turnable - a classic
Member Name: fridge_raider
Advantages: Great build quality, good features, a classic product.
Disadvantages: Price may be too much for some, but the quality does reflect the price.
With more and more new technology available on the market, and getting cheaper in many cases, lots of people are now opting to DJ using CD decks or software packages such as Ableton. While I believe these have their place (particularly software), I don't believe you can beat the responsiveness and feel of DJ'ing with vinyl.
Anyone who is familiar with turntables and DJ'ing will need no introduction to this classic product. I used this turntable during my time at college and recently saved up the money to purchase two of my own for home and semi professional use.
The turntable is direct drive, rather than being belt driven. This means that the plate itself is directly connected to the motor, rather than being driven by a belt, resulting in a more reliable and consistent motion.
This product also features a pitch bend system, making it possible for you to beatmatch tracks between two of these turntables. The pitch bend system is well contructed and the slider feels reassuringly heavy, unlike some cheaper models which feature cheap, light sliders.
The tonearm is also nice and weighty, and this coupled with the anti skating mechanism means that scratching on this turntable is an absolute joy.
Overall, the entire product oozes quality, in terms of the look and build. I would certainly recommend this turntable to anyone who is serious about wanting to DJ using vinyl.
Summary: Iconic - if you're serious about vinyl, get this.
