NEW NUMARKS=SCRATCH DJ HEAVEN

Yeah the new numarks look pretty sweet.

and all those features.. well, they are neat, but the way i see it, it's just stuff that can break.

my techs do exactly what i need them too, and i know people that have had theirs for 20 years and they still perform just like they did out of the box.

now, maybe numark TTX1s will do that too? who knows they have only been out for a few months, so it's impossible to say.

I'd like to read a review from a TA on them, all i can find on the web seems to be marketing material for them.

I know the switchable arms are included but it's pointless!

even most scratch djs still only use MK2s

if you're spinning techno/trance and you use straight arms call yourself a moron, cause that's just what you would be...
most straight arms are to short so they cause quicker wear on your vinyl

gemini SA 600 which are "cheap" TTs are the only decently lengthed straight arms out there

just don't get some!

concerning numark ... well the TT X1 is decent but all the extra features... it's like a car with a good engine, the electronics and superficial things are bound to go dead before the rest .....

technics power had been to not follow a hype in making new TTs everywhere trying to renew the market ....

and Numarks with all their billions of glow in your face features, make it easier to mix stuff is just,,,, lame lame lame ... pretty soon they'll make them automatics! and beatmatch and mix without anyones help....

Vestax is also getting steady on their models sticking to what they have without following hype and they are real good so I say vestax is the only decent competition.

and in case anybody gets pissed cause I might be bashing on cheap equipement I'm not ... I totally understand if if you can't afford the expensive stuff

watch your mouth, I use straight tone arms.

I would seriously like to see the difference between wear on a record from a str8 to a S tone arm.

All my records sound as good as when I baught them. Wear is reflected more on how heavy you set your weight. I've usually got mine at 1.5-2 grams. There is no skipping ever, and it's light enough to not wear down my records.

And i think those numarks look pretty good, some of you people just can't accept that your 1200's have actually been outdated (..well in terms of power and features) and are not the top of the line anymore. Vestax already was ahead of technics long ago, but same thing applies.

I dont want to start an argument here about turntables. Just use whatever equipment you like best. Its not about the equipment, its about the SKillz

ah sorry didn't mean to sound nasty concerning straight arm TTs ...

actually there is one dilemma with wear with str8 arms ... there's believers and non believers... delicate subject I know ..

I don't say I'm not accepting the rest ! I never said that !
And I give lots of credit to Vestax !
Numark ... maybe later

This forum rocks. people can actually disagree, and not get intoa flame war.. so refreshing, some places are much worse.

anyway..

as for the straight tone arms thing.. i have no idea, i have heard that they wear out your records, but who knows, that could be techics marketing for all i know.

what i do know for sure, is that the TTX1 is an untested machine, and the tech12M3D is tested.

i agree that thevestax gives the only real competition at this point.

what I find weird is that all home TTs have straight arms ....
off course I know you can't spin with them but still ... ain't that supposed to mean that straight arms are good?

this is like a huge dilemma! I've read they wear out more .... but I read it only in a few rare places and it seems like barely anyone knows anything about the subject ...

I'm gonna contact a friend of mine who presses vinyl for his work and ask his opinion ! I hope he answers ASAP!(haven't been in touch with him in a while )

Well.. i would assume since a regular home record player from sony or whatever is about $80, and a tech12 is more like $700, that the tech probably is using the better method?

that makes sense yes BUT

people used to play records all the time ... and they would last for years... or maybe they wore down ...

I'm waiting for a reply from my vinyl pressing friend ... that won't be till tomorrow at least I'm sure

Finally just finish setup my equips (i am so happy)
although all stuffs still on the floor...ha~~
1 x mk3
1 x mk4
1 x djm600




and i still got some questions...plz help!!

1.do i put my rca cords to the phono or line on my mixer? which is better? or doesant matter?

2.i saw a post on the web site "The master (out) is sometimes called main (out). It is the output that will feed the power amplifier(s) for the dance floor speakers"

so i should plug my rca cords into booth/monitor instead of master out, correct ?

3.where can i find a djm600 manual,or anyone has it? mine is japanese manual.which i cant read......wuwu.....~~

Nice setup ;-) That stuff is so new, I still see cardboard from the original box!

#1 Phono = analogy input; Line = digital input; Since it's from turntables, you plug them into phono.

#2 The DJM-600 has 2 master outs. XLR outputs (for professional equipment) and RCA outputs. Master outs goes into the receiver/amplifier that's powering the main speakers (speakers the audience will hear). Booth/monitor outs goes to the amplifier that's power your monitor speakers in the DJ booth. If you only have 2 speakers, use the master out.

#3 Try ebay or pioneer's website to see if they ahve an electronic version.
