So I've bought my S4 for a lil over a year now and its been an awesome ride, no regrets at all. Now i'm looking to expand my set up with a pair of TT's with my S4 as a mixer. Got a couple of questions though, hope you guys can help me out!
1. Should i buy the traktor scratch upgrade kit or the A6/A10?
I know the S4 has its own soundcard and all. But i'm dubious about how long the S4 can last. Simply cause this is my 3rd exchanged Traktor S4 due to other problems with the last 2, and my warranty has expired.
If i get the tsp 2 upgrade kit first and my s4 dies, my only option is to get traktor certified mixer or to buy the A6/10 which is double cost, and i'll have 2 TSP2's.
If i buy the A6/A10 first, i wont need to worry bout this problem. But the A6 costs like 3 times more than the upgrade kit.
I've been reading and researching turntables for a longggg time. Prolly getting a pair of Super OEMs, (Stanton Str8 st150s?) just cause a pair of brand new technics where I live can get me 2 pairs of super oems. Do you guys have any opinions on this? And do u guys have any recommendations?
And i know technics has a good aftermarket of spare parts and all. Can the same be said for super oems? I'm afraid of any problems in the future after warranty, afterall, turntables arent the cheapest.
3. S-curve or Straight tonearms?
After reading, I think that its mainly aesthetics and personally preference, except that straight tonearms are better for scratching. Stanton ST150 vs Stanton STR8 ST150
Thanks for the help guys! Correct me if i'm wrong anywhere. Much appreciated.
