    Default What replaces the Technic 1200s?

    Just curious, on the market today what can be used to replace the 1200s for home use for scratching? I really thought about the numark ttx usb tt. Any sales rep or dj don't seem to like numark. Someone recommended the audio technica lp240. I was scratching my head on that one. Also, as I learn the s4, would you recommend buyin an x1 and using that as backup if my s4 breaks or something? Then I just leave my tech 1200s at home?I thought about buying a used pmc 06 pro for home use with tts. Thanks for any help.

    Denon DN-S3700 is what I'd go with. Not sure what's wrong with Numark though, I like their stuff. Some DJ's hate anything that doesn't say Pioneer or Technics on it, that might be the attitude you're getting. Damn fanboys.

    The Stanton STR8-150 are very good tables and better than techs in a lot of places the problem is that 1200's are iconic and the end all be all for turntables. Rightfully so but it's hard to change people mind's once a standard is in place for so long just look at MIDI.

    Whats wrong with technics??

    T.80s are GREAT for the price!
    But I'd still get Technics.. I've never tried str8-150s BUT I've heard a lot of good things!

    I'm hoping to be able to pick up some TTs soon.. I sold mine last week because I needed money, and now its time to start saving up again.
    I'm gonna go with Technics over anything else because its what i know and what I trust.
    I know the ins and out of them.. VERY easy to customize and repair!
