Turntables other than 12's?

So the times have changed and things are mostly digital from what i can see. Have there been any competitors to the Technique 1200's? Does anything out there come close to them? I think i''m going to buy some turntables but i don't think i can dish out the money for 12's. So i'm looking to get something cheaper that will get the job done. Mind you, these turntables will be used with Time Coded vinyl for Serato so they won't be used to play real records :)

I've been out of the DJ scene since the early 90s so i'm at a lost when it comes to the current times.

I've heard good things about the Numark TT500. I'm old school when it comes to turntables so it's 1200's for me. :)

Sweet man thanks! I think that's what i'm going to go with. Since i'm not going to be spinning real vinyl on them and only the time coded vinyl for Serato, they should do me just fine.

As little as possible with getting something of decent quality. Something that won't break after a month of use.

White Devil uses some Numark Direct Drive TTs and loves them. They do not have the cool LCD display, as far as I know. He is always singing their praises.....

The only TTX's available now are USB. The other TTX1 are no longer available, at least not on numarks website.

You know I never understood why people say this? Can someone help me out here?

I have the control vinyls and it looks like a vinyl, it feels like a vinyl, and it is a vinyl! Don't let the haters tell you other wise. That is what is was meant for. Compare the control vinyl to other vinyls you have and you will see it is the same but used differently. You place the control on the platter the same way, the record rotates the same way, you put the needle on the record the same, and you work the pitch the same. The only difference is that you will have more accessible features with DVS available then without. Sure you will see the breaks on the record well I don't only see it on a DVS system by looking at the screen I can also place tags on the breaks if I want to. You can also loop on the fly which you will never do on Vinyl and believe me it does come in handy. So many more reasons that I don't want to go into right now.:D

I currently have and use on a regular basis 4 Numark TTxs and if you've listened to my shows you know I put them through some serious abuse and so far they are VERY good and durable.

there were 3 generations of Numark TTxs

TTX1 had some overheating issues when used for long periods of time due to a low platter although was fixed in the 2nd version released which was the TTX. Another point is this first version of the TTX was that the motor only produced 3.7kg/cm torque.

Now the 2nd version comes out with an extra feature, more powerful motor (5.0kg/cm torque) with interchangeable torque and they have fixed the overheating issue from the first generation. Both of these above generations have a digital output for 24bit broadcast/recording if your system allowed it. (these are the turntables I currently have)

the 3rd Generation and the one available on the market today is the same as the 2nd generation although they removed the digital output and put in the USB adapter so you can easily rip your vinyls to digital format. Now for those wondering if you can connect your TTs as USB directly to the PC in order to control the vinyl I am afraid that this feature is not possible since all the software out on the market today only read 1 soundcard for 2 turntables and each turntable will read out as 1 soundcard.

In order to connect your turntables (no matter what brand or model) to use Timecoded vinyl you will require to have a soundcard with 2 stereo ins and outs to connect your turntables to and the outs will of course go to your mixer. Many new soundcards have a pre amp so that your mixer no longer need to pre-amplify your sound nor would your computer software do that as its all done through the hardware to save you some hassle.

For me I put a splitter from my turntables to the soundcard and the other split goes directly to the extra set of connectors my mixer has so if my laptop ever crashes during a gig I can flip the switch on the mixer to play real vinyl instead so that I limit the dead air when playing live.
