I got a Numark TTX

nice high torque for scratching (or rather, learning to scratch), huge pitchbend range and the ability to lock the song in key so you're adjusting tempo without changing pitch, BPM detector, built very sturdily. This piece of gear has endured many late night sessions as i scratch away to a newly made beat. It's also played countless dusty records in pursuit of old breaks and potential choppable bits and pieces.

at the moment I have it going into a Numark DM 1050 DJ mixer. In contrast to the turntable, this is a piece of shit. I think this was made by some 3rd party then had Numark's logo printed onto it. The crossfader produces noise when it is moved and the EQ knobs may as well be painted on. Luckily it has a 'mini' cross fader for the Cue/Monitor line out, so I route out from the headphones into the 8-track (non-DJ) mixer to allow this non-noisy fader to be used.

How are you guys playing your records? What mixers do you use?

What is the BPM detector? A kind of metal detector?

Got a couple MK2s...

Isn't it true that the 1200 MK5s have and optional +- 16 pitch shift, rather than the standard +- 8?

Well it’s no secret, I own a Technics 1200 mk2, but I still got my Vestax Handytrax. I was on the fence for selling it, but I decided to keep it. The Vestax is more delicate than the Mk2, but I could take it to a friend’s place, bring it along when I go record shopping at a place with no listening station, or just hook directly into a SP. So it’s staying.

Technics SL-1200 all day since 1987... 2 of them plus a gold 1200.
If you can solder and like to tinker with music gear, you can easily mod your 1200s to solder the ground wire to the RCA plugs, add a removable power cord and RCA cords, add a no click on the pitch, add different colored LEDs and add a reverse switch.
I've done this to many client's 1200s and the paid up to $500 to do these mods.
