Excerpt: Great bang for your buck, This turntable has a lot of torque power, the necessary for DJ scratching, etc. The mat facilitates moving the vinyl back and forth (not a rubber mat), This is a direct drive turntable. The quality of the parts is great, except for the arm, counter-weight and anti-skate dial, It is not accurate but a good stylus weight gauge and a grooveless vinyl would do the job.
Excerpt: After DJ'ing for many years (@ 19yrs), I have used many different pieces of equipment. I recently decided to move from my Pioneer CDJ 400 controllers to vinyl. I have never been a scratch DJ but my purchase of the CDJ 400's sparked my interest. I started to look at the monster of all DJ turntables, Technics. Being that some models have gone out of production, some of the prices are out of my range.
Pros: Consistent, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Professional Features, Versatile
