Sorry dude but that's totally bullshit. I told you this deck has perfect vinyl emulation. If you say this player is not for mixing, you're practically saying vinyl isn't for mixing. This thing has the size of a turntable, so does it matter? If you're saying it's too big and I don't have that much space, then you're making sense. There are cheaper alternatives too you know, but this is definetly the one that perfectly feels like vinyl.
Take a look at DJ Firewire, apparantly this person knows what he uses.
For vinyl die-hards like you? You obviously haven't tried the CDX. One thing straigt: The Technics was built for perfect vinyl emulation. They did NOT succeed, e.g. the slipmat used sucks ass. If you want REAL vinyl emulation, try the CDX. If you haven't and you think that the Technics kicks ass, you should slap yourself in the face and head to your dealer to try the CDX :P.
This is why the cdx is not for mixing, as i have already stated it can only be as accurate as 0.1. This means even if you get them as accuratly beatmatched as possible you will still have to baby them with pitch bends. Sure, this doesnt matter if youre pulling off intro outro mixes, i guess, but try mixing techno on four decks, and tell me how effective it would be with 0.1 accuracy. After about 13 seconds they will go out of sync and youll have to bend them...constantly pampering 4 decks, or 3, or even 2 would leave little time for anything else.
Feel free to prove me wrong though, sounds like you own a store or something, so if you have such confidence in these decks set up quads of these and mix like liebing.
I did not say vinyl is not for mixing, so dont tell me im saying that. Vinyl is analog, its accuracy is only limited by what the smallest movement you can make with the slide is. I've heard different points of view on this, some say its close to 0.02, others say its more like 0.05. I think its somewhere in the middle. It doesnt matter though, the point is its NOT 0.1.
