Oh, these take me back.

My first Proper set of Direct Drive Vinyl Turntables, almost venerable in my opinion, as i cut my teeth on the decks, learning to beat-mix and scratch tunes for up to 9 hours a time.

It has everything vinyl Turntables should have, and a couple of extra's that made them truly worthy.

First, the pitch control was 10 +\- whereas 1210 Technics (Industry Standard Decks for over 30 years) had a pitch control of only 8 +/-

This meant you could play records fast and slower than on a set of 1210s, and the decks themselves had a pitch-bend option, consiting of two buttons to slow or speed up the record without actually touching the record on the platter.

Yeah, these decks were perfect for learning, the torque, while less than 1210s, was sufficient enough to simulate the required level of attention needed to beat-match records, the staple technique used by Dance Music DJs, with very little in the way of wavering, These decks were almost as good as 1210s in my opinion, lacking only in the surefire consistency that Technics offered

Great Decks, not the Best by a long shot, but certainly good enough.
