Tons of features. Except... No Sampling. No wave-form display. No resistence or touch sensitivity on the scratch platter.

Price paid: $375 USD

Sound is actually very good, except when you start key correcting. Should be paired with a transparent mixer that doesn't soften the sound at all.

Extremely easy to use. A miracle of ergonomics. Relatively light. Two and a mixer in a soft case with CD wallet can be carried by hand to a car.

I have had severe problems with these units during the entire 6 months of owning them. Sloppy internal design. Buttons wearing out. Inconsistent button "feel". CD mechanism has failed three times. Occasional freeze ups, which can actually cause the other side to freeze, too. Numark's repair people are lackluster, though the senior people try to make up for problems if you ask them to. When the problem is their fault, they don't pay to pick it up, though. Make sure you actually tell them your concerns and what you'd like to see done to remedy the situation.

It can do things that no other unit can. I can have an entire, advanced CD djing system in a soft case, including my records. It looks great, and when it works, sounds greats. The software is upgradeable and now is up to the level of their new CDN-90. Just buy locally and don't put up with any quality control inconsistencies until you get two flawless sounding and feeling units.
