Technics all day!

By J - Rockwell

from New York - Texas

Comments about Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro Turntable:

Technics have overturned the status quo in the turntable market. The craftmanship of the MK5's are unmatched. I tested the Vestax, Numark TTX1's and Technics 1210 MK5's. The Vestax and Numarks are great, I really cannot put them down. In fact I may get a set for my daughter to play around on. However, Technics are the real deal... not just relying on the Technics history or popularity.. but on actual hands on testing and comparing to other decks the Technics just feel so much better. The stability and strength of these decks when mixing, scratching, blending and beat juggling is superior. When rubbing the vinyl on the MK5's you can tell it is a premium product.

Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro Turntable

By DJ RedSpinz

from Olympia, WA.

Comments about Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro Turntable:

Yo, I used to rock the numark TT1650 but I upgraded to this right here. I can honestly tell you that it's much faster and stronger in torque. My skills improve alot. With this right here...I'm seriously thinking about participating in the next Spin Off. The motor last forever. It doesn't slow down for nothing.

Great Turntable

By Frank D

from Hollywood, CA.

Comments about Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro Turntable:

I worked at a restaurant that had a pair of Technics SL-1210MK5's). They were used about 15 hours a week for the past 7 years and were accidently pushed off of tables and dropped by busboys, etc.--at least 10 times that I saw. They still continue to work perfectly. Their reputation for durability is well-deserved.

1200's vs numark ttx

By DJ BDB DA' 313

from DETROIT, MI

Comments about Technics SL-1210MK5 Pro Turntable:

Yo! when I'm playing a gig I skip right past my 1210's and grab my ttx's the ttx's have mad torque along with sensitivity and responsiveness, nothing can touch my ttx's !! if I had to describe it with an analgy I would break it down like this, If I were in a car race I wouldn't take my Bentley, nope I'd take my lambrohgini !! For show The 1210's are the pretty choice, but for the dough........... give me my ttx's !! torque, after you use the direct drive system on the ttx's , the 1210's feel like a belt driven. weak, easy to stop and push start toyz! although I can honestly say that technics sound amazingly dope as far as crisper and clearer!
