With the advent of vinyl, it is no surprise that more manufacturers a jumping on the plastic wagon to bring tools to those who still pursuing vinyl, Numark is the latest to come to the table, with an announcement at the Atlantic City Dj Expo of their latest turntable the TT250USB.
The thing unlike other manufacturers Numark never ceased production on its turntables , so rather than this being a relaunch of its turntable it could be seen as rather an upgrade to the PRO TT range , just with better design features, off the back of the Technics Sl1200 patent expiring.
Key features include:
§ Quartz-controlled direct-drive motor
§ Die-cast aluminium platter (.09% wow & flutter)
§ S-shaped tonearm
§ Pre-mounted high-quality magnetic cartridge
§ Pitch Fader and Pitch-Bend controls
§ Pitch adjustment range ±10%
§ 1/8-inch input for remote start with compatible mixers
§ Attached stereo line-out RCA cable
this is what they had further to say off their product page on their website:
“ Here is the ideal turntable for turntablists. TT250USB is a professional direct-drive turntable perfectly suited to heavy-duty DJ and music playback duties. Its quartz-controlled direct-drive motor delivers virtually perfect speed accuracy when playing back records, and its high torque motor provides the ideal amount of resistance and feel for scratching effects.
We’ve got the goods. Right away.
An S-shaped tonearm with anti-skating control and damped cuing ensures precise tracking of the record’s grooves with minimal error, so the sound is always clean and clear. A rugged, high-quality magnetic cartridge comes pre-mounted and perfectly aligned in the headshell, so you’re ready for action, right out of the box. Those days of fumbling with tiny cartridge mounting screws and alignment gauges are gone—let the other guys struggle with that! Not here.
Making your life easier. And more fun.
The TT250USB converts analog records to digital files via the USB connection to the computer (USB cable software download card included). Other thoughtful touches include adjustable height support feet, a 1/8-inch input for remote start when using a mixer that can provide remote start capability and a target light that illuminates the record under dim lighting conditions."
The TT250USB is expected at the current exchange rate to sell at an estimate of R6800, but we crossing our fingers that by the time it reaches our Shores later this year , that our exchange rate has improved for us to enjoy it an affordable price.
