thats some sexy turntable!
But, even though it's got the +/-16%... still think i'd use it in "8% mode"... imo
Unless i wanted to get heavy on the Alvin, Simon...Theodore
yea totally agree, thats a fucking sexy deck. Actually. its so sexy i think ive just cum. hahaha
damn. a pair of those would dig deep in your pocket, i bet. Well worth it though.
Just put Wildchild on those decks with her looks & tight mixing & uv got the definition for sexy! Those decks have the kind of class that any Vestax deck will never have.
But how much does sexy cost?

IMO, these decks aren't all they're cracked up to be...
I very nearly bought a set, but settled on standard Mk5s instead. I've since used a pair at one of our local clubs (the Arc bar, in Bristol) and was convinced that I made the right choice!
For a start, they don't look half as porno in real life as they ads make them out to be. The silver's really nowt special. In fact I thought they were ruined by the el cheapo display for the pitch change (between 8% and 16%), which looks like something off a cheap belt drive.
Secondly, it's worryingly east to change pitch setting without noticing... I once played an hour's set and found the first half hour very hard going, as I couldn't 'lock on' to the correct pitch with the right hand deck. It was only when I checked the pitch setting carefully that I realised I'd been mixing in '16% mode': I must have knocked the button early on in my set...
Furthmore, the button was acutally stuck to the extent that I had to whack the deck in order to change back to 8%! When you combine this with the fact that tunes sounds crapped ptiched up beyong about 5% anyway, I reckon it makes these decks much more trouble than they're worth.
Bit of a rant I realise, but I would have been gutted if I'd shelled out almost a grand for them- I just wanted to warn off anyone else from doing the same.
hahahahaha. sounds like the best possible thing in the world. itd hav to be wildchild, on those decks, in my room to be perfect tho
These decks are over-priced, but still a good 'un.
I've got them, and use the +/- 16 more than I thought I would. Allows you to mix in more older bits that would otherwise be possible. An old skool vocals are menty to be squeaky as hell.
(If you know about the +/- 16 button, it's not a prob. Have never mis-hit it in my life.)
