Key Features

- Thanks to its high-torque direct drive system, providing stable rotation that can withstand the most demanding gigs 
- rubber tubing in the arm to cut howling
- upper body is built from heavy mass die-cast zinc, 8mm thick resin lower body and 9mm thick base made from vibration damping material
- Variable width of tempo can be selected from ±8%, ±16% and ±50%, and these wide-ranging tempo controls expand the possibilities of DJ play. Pressing the “RESET” button instantly reverts to the fixed rotation speed at ±0%.
- Body design allowing cables not to protrude beyond its outer dimensions
- By using rubber and springs on the dampening parts of the insulator, noise from external vibrations is absorbed and isolated, and stable installation is made possible.
- DJ play has been made smoother by minimizing the operational sound of the START / STOP button.
- A rough surface is applied to the underside of the turntable on the left and right sides in order to ensure stability when carrying.
