    I played with one of these at CES. It's truly badass. Feels just like it should; not exactly like Technics but the power + weight are all there. And Audio-Technica is no slouch; they have very well respected lines of phono cartridges and headphones. They don't have a history of making stuff marketed to DJs, but let's face it, we're not brain surgeons; our needs are pretty obvious and identifiable. If you're looking for new decks I would totally recommend these.

    I like having the 78 on there. I truly miss that from my Numarks. I would be interested to see tracking and antiskate in action.

    it really looks like a technics. but inside, it's similar to a numark tt200. specs for wow and flutter and rumble aren't impressive at all. guy in youtube vid is a bit dumb?

    Really? :O I spin a pair of TTX-1s and the 78rpm button has always baffled me. What have you used it for?

    I have tons of old broadcast and classical and some swing recorded at 78.

    The specs look comparable to me, the differences (.01% and 6db) are practically a rounding error.

    For which table? An LP120 or an TT200 or an SL-1200?

    I was comparing the Audio Technica (.02% W+F and 50db S/N) with the 1200 M5G (.01% and 56db)
