Numark Rolls Out An Affordable, Technics Inspired New Turntable
With a platter, layout and S-shaped tonearm nearly identical in design to those of the no-longer-in-production Technics SL1200, Numark has unveiled their latest turntable, the TT250USB.
Described as a “top-flight” piece of gear by the company, it’s affordable €279,00 (suggested) price tag will not pain the wallet as much as a vintage Technics or the, similar styled, Pioneer PLX-1000. According to Numark, the TT250USB’s quartz-controlled motor delivers virtually perfect speed accuracy when playing back records, and its high-torque motor and heavy cast-aluminum platter provide the ideal amount of resistance and feel for scratching effects.
“This is the ideal turntable for demanding turntablists,” said Numark Marketing Manager, Karl Detkin. Adding, “Here is a classic turntable that will stand up to heavy-duty DJ use night after night and it also has all the modern conveniences and operational flexibility that make it incredibly satisfying and easy to use. Plus, of course, it sounds absolutely great.”
The TT250USB will be available early 4th Quarter 2015.
