Summary: I had these decks when i first started to learn how to dj, At first i was impressed by the way they looked and the decks seemed very responsive to begin with. The ound quality seemsa bit poor to me but i think its more the needle quality Starting and stopping seems a little slow compared to the likes of Technics 1210, but the momentum of the record is very easily disrupted by just trying to tweak the speed slightly. This is very frustrating!
Pros: Looks good, Great Starter Deck, Easy to use
Cons: Pitch control feels light, Needles ware out fast
Summary: the numark tt1650 may look the part there stylish ,solid but the pitch control is a total let down for mixes and doesnt seem to be able to keep up speed good for scratching but in genaral bit of a let down would rather use a belt drive turntable instead of the numak 1650 very disapointed
Summary: Direct drive motor 2 start/stop Aluminium deck Detachable connections located underneath the deck S-shaped tonearm Pitch control: +/- 10% Includes Numark Groove Tool cartridge Phono output ABS body The TT1650 is the industry standard entry level turntable. There is something quite alluring about this deck, it has everything you could ask for from a beginners point of view, it stylish, cheap, and has features no other entry level deck has.
Summary: I have owned a pair of these decks for around a year and 6 months, I owned a pair of numark 1520s before my 1650s and was very satisfied with them. Many people find the 1650s difficult to keep pitch in long mixes, although i have never had a problem until now. My mixes generally last anywhere between 1 and 3 mins. The only reason I am having problems now is because the decks are getting old as i bought them second hand.
Pros: Direct drive, cheap, fun, good for all levels of ability .
Cons: New slipmats a must, New needles a must, deteriorate after extensive use .
Summary: These decks are perfect for anyone starting out with the DJing. However, if you can afford to I would recommend going for something a bit better, only because you with grow out of them pretty quickly. The torque of the motor is weak meaning the platter stops turning as soon as you put more than the lightest touch on it. I have also found that they cant hold the pitch very well, so you can never hold a perfect mix for very long.
Summary: These were my first turntables I bought for myself, but I made this decision after having studied the competition quite a lot. I've played on lots of other decks of approximately same level and none could compare with Numark TT1650. The mixer I used was Numark 1050, which is of the same price level and a perfect match for the these decks. At first they catch your eye with their style. It is pretty futuristic with all of it's elements being very smooth.
Summary: The Numark TT1650 is an excellent beginners deck. It is Direct Drive at an excellent price and has the usual sleek looks associated with Numark products. Whilst the deck is very durable, the needles that come with it as standard aren't and I would recommend replacing them as soon as you get them. There are definitely noticeable differences between the TT1650's and more expensive decks available but the Numarks keep pace very well.
