How long have you use it?

I used it for 2 years, from March 2011 to March 2013, I bought it used 150th, in very good condition with all the original box and equipment.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

No, it was my first turntables, now I went to Technics m3d

What is the particular feature you like best and least?

The +:

- The pitch is accurate and crashes to 0 when it spends, compared to technics 1200, it is convenient to return quickly to 0. (On m3d there is a button to reset to 0 it is more convenient).

- Both pitches + and - buttons in instant, it's funny that when we do sweep scratches.

- It's not specifically a +, but the cables (RCA, power, and ground) are not connected to the inside of the plate, you must connect it to the plate and the rest is not bad if or cables are screwed and to transport the plate, its avoids having cables lying around everywhere.

The -:

- The round power button, it blocks compared to technics. Serte prevents its accidental cuts, however, when one wishes to make quick breaks in scratch, its can block.

- The weight adjustment, it is very fragile and tends to move.

- The motor torque, slow to start, and during violent scratches, it not like the quick restart.

- The cell of origin: good to listen to the mix, but for the scratch, should opt for the concord.

How would you rate the quality / price?

For me, the 150th in time and in very good condition, its worth as a beginner, I make my debut with, I learned most of the techniques scratch and mix with. Now in a worse state than I put in it.

With experience, you do again this choice?

Not now, but I recommend this board for any beginner to less than 150 euros budget if it is equipped with a good cell and if it is in good condition.
