2 - If the design is "original", the functions that are really médiodre +.
It is mandatory to use the wheel to a CUE Sampler slot. no possibility, as in many other deck so Sampler slot to make a simple "play / pause" accurate.
The loop itself is far from perfect being. The tray is just too sensitive and too much engine inertia to a tempo setting.
The time of CD playback after insertion is far too long (compared with other models even much older).
They only accept to be poorly governed, hot and refuses to end the CD (original) by displaying error messages.
Moreover, they do not read MP3. It is inconceivable today, when the Internet is full of legal download site.
3 - I had tried to live or earlier: CD 1000 POWER, OXO CHESLEY, DENON 2500 F, TASCAM 302, Pioneer CDJ different, DNS 1000, DNS3500, stanton double CD, mini TASCAM (not counting all the little shops trials ).
4 - the plate is really that disappointed me the most level or quality / price ratio.
5 - If it again, of course not.
Sorry to be so impartial with these decks but we must also take into account that the manufacturer of the product advertised as "high end".
