I asked this question somewhere else. Now that they are officially done what tables will the DJ's use now or will they go strictly the CDJ route I have been looking at the Stantons.

Ted those Vestex PDX-3000MK2'S ARE NICE @ ABOUT $799.00 EACH...

I just dont like the idea of buying stuff that you cant try out first...cause out here places dont have expensive items like that on display! :eek:

I'm not sure about the Stantons I would stay clear of them if it was me :confused:
it is getting harder and harder to deal with the vinyl issue and what to use?

This is a sad day

RIP Technics1200's

You have had good luck with your numarks haven't you Ted? Would you recommend those to anyone looking for turntables for vinyl?

I'm not sure u can call that good luck, the fact is he is looking for replacment after 5 years give or take!!!

Technics are still working after 20+ years hard.

I had the Numark TTX1's and they didnt last 2 years till the motors blew.

I would stay away from any Newmark!!!! BURN ME ONCE, SHAME ON YOU, BURN ME TWICE, SHAME ON ME....NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!!!!

I would drop the money and pick up a pair of Technics before its too late!!!!!!!! especially with how much you use them Ted :) I belive parts will always be available if ever needed, people are or will be blueprinting parts!!!!

IF YOU GO BACK AND READ THE UPDATE ON THE LINK IN THE ORIGINAL POST YOU WILL SEE IT IS JUST THE 1200MK6 THAT THEY ARE STOPPING PRODUCTION ON NOT THE REST OF THE 1200 MODELS SO THEY LIVE ON!!!!!!

Read this artical..http://alldance.fm/forums/showthread.php/4-Technics-TurnTables-Done
here panasonic states they have discontinued the products for good.

Again what I see is this quote at the end of that article:

"Assuming the statement is true, the reasons make total sense and backs up everything I've heard too. Turntable sales are in the toilet and have been for a few years now. Essentially Panasonic are saying that there's no money in the turntable game at the high end anymore, and they most likely won't be able to get parts anyway - well not without going to new suppliers and paying for all new tooling"



THERE IS NO MONEY IN THE TURNTABLE GAME AT THE HIGH END ANYMORE.... The high end meaning the 1200MK6 "grandmaster model"

Last year it was the mid-level Technics 1200MK5 and 1210MK5, this year it's the Technics SL-1200MK6. That leaves only the low end Technics 1200 and 1210 MK2 that will most likely go up in price.


Oops, too late they already have!

Technics SL-1210M5G Pro Turntable Blemished - Like New $873.08
http://www.guitarcenter.com/Technics-SL-1210M5G-Pro-Turntable-102063013-i1156092.gc

They were about $750 last year and that was BRAND NEW!

PS By the looks of their websites it doesn't look like either SamAsh or Guitar Center is stocking any Technics Turntables.

And with CDJ I feel like a traditionalist, lol, as everyone is on that labtop sh*t.

Vinyl has to be over. I'm just hoping CDs stay alive. I think CDs is a good compromise and is actually the best quality digital sound out there. I like mixing wit' CDJ, it was wierd at first but got fun once I got used to it. I burn all my mp3s to CD to keep that physical feel.

I wasnt gonna say anything but right is right and wrong is wrong!!!!

THIS THREAD IS ABOUT "BYE BYE TECHNICS 1200's

NOT ABOUT DROPPING ANY NEG COMMENTS ABOUT "that labtop sh*t"

When I read your post it looks like you tossed that in there as a low blow...to float your ego!!!

I'm guessing a new thread could be started about the above!!!

It's not that serious now, LOL. Who on here was my comment intended to insult? I thought this is all old school in the house.

And what ego? I never claimed to be the best live, there's plenty of djs who are better at it live than me. I'm just one of the best "mixtape djs" (I know peeps are gonna give me a hard time for that one, lol). Mixtapes have totally more to do with multitrack editing & production engineer type work. While we're on the subject, I was one of the first ones (out here in Chicago) to use a computer to make a mixtape and some of the other djs took shots at me cuz of that at the time (nevermind that in those days, the software wasn't mixing anything, it just provided a multitrack editing venue). And now inside every club the djs are mixing with the computer screen right up there for everyone to see. HUH? There's no way that stuff would have gotten over back in the 90s (what was the peak of the dj era).

To keep it totally real, I don't exactly know how to use that Serato stuff properly. It seems too complicated or better put, I like to keep things simple. Other djs have tried to show me and everytime my reaction was the same, "it's still the same amount of work, maybe even more, the bpm display on the mixer or cdj should be making it easy enough, as long as that is there what's the point of the labtop?" Another thing I discovered inadvertantly was that it makes it far more imperative to throw the new song in exactly right as if you're even a little late or early, fixing it in real time is actually harder if you're using software live. The only advantage to stuff like Serato is that one doesn't have to carry all those records or cds around everywhere.

I would think that animosity towards modern methods of mixing would be expected in a thread titled "bye bye technic 1200s".

Huh... where to start?

I would have to say that your un-needed comment could insult at least 5 out of 7 or more...DJ's on this site that do perform a live mix show!!!

I would also say that it is Old School in this house...as well as new!!!


And what ego>>>>>> the 1 right here claming to be "one of the best mix tape DJ's around"
To keep it real I have never heard one of your mix tapes before... I am going to ask around and try to find 1 of the tales. If I can't find 1, is their a location I can buy it or DL one legally? What label is it on?

I would also have to say that I believe that the best DJ's of today must be versatile on all types of equipment out there!!!

I'm not gonna keep replying to this JACKED THREAD!!!!!!!

Like I said a new thread can be started.... and I would hope others do speak up and be heard, if not it's no big deal, I dont hate on others & like mama always told me If you dont have nice things to say... dont say anything at all :)
YeeeeeeHaaaaaaaaw

This is too much of a reaction to some very light hearted comments I had made regarding the END OF THE OLD SCHOOL WAY OF MIXING. I would think that a comment like the one I had made would be expected on this exact thread. All I did was refer to a method of mixing as "that labtop sh*t". I wasn't dissing it, I was just referring to it, if I knew peeps were that sensitive I wouldn't have. Nevermind the fact that I'm insulting myself when I say that I don't really understand how to fully utilize the labtop method. It's confusing to me.

BTW, I have plenty of other mixtape titles besides "the tales". Just google Kid Heartbreak freestyle. Or you can listen to the first ten minutes of Bronx Tale Volume 3 on my youtube channel

I own two of these babies and have not used them in about 10 years so they are in mint condition. They will be worth $$$ to someone in the future looking for a great TT but hold on to them as long as you can. As for me, they will be right where they are for a while until I place them in a studio sometime.
