How long have you use it?

1 year at home and in the evenings

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

A Hercules MK2, CDJ800 mkII, V7 Numark, Gemini CDM3700, Reloop DJ 2

What is so special that you like most and least?

Platinum-level performance effects
Good-quality sound card
Jogs right-sized
-Lighting (what I like most)
Torq 1.5.2-Stable
An in-turie mix (with effects + VST)

Aspect-too plastoc
-For those who have had a problem that only led to noon and 2 max of red light on the stage equalizer transformer too fragile (had to change it because it gets too hot and it did eventually give up the ghost) it can always of interest to you transformer DC12V 1000mA output
2.0-Torq totally unstable
Pc-muscled to run properly (4 Hearts and 8GB of RAM) and even sometimes the software saccade (a low but still negative) small crackles are heard, I will say it is the latency bah whatever I make it but hopefully its still not too recurrent.
Approximate self-timing, but I made manual
BPM-recognized by half compared to the normal on some music (force multiplied by 2 manual)
Pitch-sensitive too, but his view is a detail
-Master who blew up if too high (80% say it) but I never rises to over 70% of the max

How would you rate the quality / price?

I paid 400 I can say that at this level is reasonable

With experience, you do again this choice?

Quite sure that so wrong sandstone some flaws its still a great product that is anything but a toy, I would advise those who have the mix on smaller plates because it is simple but in the details as you can play the card of the technique and evening with the repeat among others you can do to sacred things. And I de-Torq 2.0 and counseling rather I recommend 1.5.2, but less stable quality level at least. If I have something to say to the team who created this great software, it is a shame that version 2.0 is unstable because it have a huge potential that I may compare to Serato.

Only hope the next one platinum metal and a little more to Torq 2.0 is his hair would be perfect.
