If your interested in becoming a DJ or a pro with years of experience, trust no other name than Technics. A wise friend told me when I started spinning not to bother with the decks featuring all the bells and whistles... He said "Buy the decks the pros use, You'll end up upgrading to them later on anyway once you know the difference between feature quantity verses quality..." I bought a pair of SL1200mkII's. I have since upgraded to these MK5's. They are basically the same as the MKII's. These decks however feature a "No click" pitch. Also a tighter anti-skid. I found that when beat-matching close to on the pitch, The Quartz lock would seem to pull to almost as if it was magnetic. Thats actually my favorite feature on this turntable. The pitch lock switches off with the push of a button. The tighter anti skid is also better than on the MKII's. I have done every kind of experimenting with every kind of scratch possible on these decks with very little or no skipping... These turntables are a bit on the expensive side. I would have to say in my opinion "You get what you pay for." If you want to be able to produce quality mixes or production. You need quality equipment. Theres a reason the name Technics is the industry standard for professional DJ equipment... It is the best set of decks out there PERIOD!

Now im not sure if this would work for a DJ who needs to play a club or some shit but this works perfect for my band. We throw electronic sounds and DJ scratches and shit into our music. I bought it but my friend actually uses it in our band he is or sampler, DJ and Keyboarder. It works good for what we do but like I said I can't comment on if I was a DJ in a club. It's good for someone who doesn't have a lot of money to spend.

Technics feel better...

By Keeba

from TX - NY

See all my reviews

Technics have overturned the status quo in the turntable market. The craftmanship of the MK5's are unmatched. I tested both the Numark TTX1's and Technics 1210 MK5's. The Numarks are great, I really cannot put them down. In fact I may get one of them for my son. However, not just relying on the Technics history or popularity, but on actual hands on testing and comparing to other decks, the Technics just feel so much better. The stability and strength of these decks when mixing, scratching, blending and beat juggling is superior. When rubbing the vinyl on the MK5's you can tell it is a premium product.

Digital pitch adjust

By Aaron Rix

from Arizona USA

This deck has a didital pitch adjust just like a cd player meaning you adjust in increments of plus or minus 1.1 1.2 No more anolog pitch adjust. And with out a jog wheel it lacks the tracking ability many have come to expect. Not an issue if your playing hip hop but for those of you that play any style where you have two songs playing together for a minut or so this isn't the deck for you.

Purchasing it soon

By Steve-iMzFY

My friend owns these and I've also tested them out myself, unbelievable performance as far as the skipping goes, It doesn't skip at all, nice set of turntables, def better than the 1200's & MK2's. I highly suggest these, new model/new feautures and not a bad price for a set of technics, I am buying them and you should too! They are also very reliable for scratch dj's

From Chevy to Cadillac

By Bam

from Phx. AZ

I used Numarks for a year. Now don?t get me wrong Numarks are good but I needed something better. I spin House and Hip Hop and noticed when I would spin; the motor on the tables would come and go. A friend of mine has a pair of techs. One day he let me use them for a house party and was hooked ever since. I finally decided I wanted Techs so I bought one and WOW. Like I said I went from Chevy to a Cadillac. Techs are great. I really felt the difference after one use. The Platter never stops. Pitch is very accurate and the brakes are wow. Technics are the best for a reason, and now I see why.

No introduction needed

By Ian

from Hampton, VA

See all my reviews

Features: 7 - Not what you are looking for if you feel your turntable should do more than 8% pitch at 33 and 45. There are few features to speak of on these decks, but that isn't why you get these. For those not in need of gimmicks, there is nothing better and what they have is what you need. Further they don't lend themselves to malfunction like decks jammed full of fun but worthless features.Quality: 10 - Technics are the best, tried and true. This will be my fourth pair, the first three being 1200's. They are absurdly durable, and NO ONE can touch the quality of this product. This isn't my fourth pair due to replacement, I've still got two pair and sold one, this is my fourth pair because they are that good.Value: 8 - Lets face it, turntables are insanely expensive. The actual value is a 10 in my estimation, but across the board they simply cost too much. Lets face it, DJing with vinyl is no longer a niche.Overall: 10 - 10. Period. 10.

Don't Got Em? Get Em! Got Em? Love Em!

By DJ Majik

from SC

See all my reviews

I played on the illustrious MK2's my whole DJ career and always hated when I got in a mix right on the pitch lock that clicked you in place. With the MK5's not a problem! Just like the M3D's it moves across the 0 pitch with no clicking but, now with the MK5's the tonearm is suped up for scratch happy action! The black looks great and Technics will last a lifetime. Whatever you can throw at em! Don't settle with some cheapos! Get what you can rely on for years to come! And 2nd Air Shipping was super cheap for these 30lb'ers! Thanks Musicians Friend!

Industy standard

By Suck-o

from slc ut.

See all my reviews

To anyone who does not know the technics turntable is the industry standard. Anyone who rates these decks below a ten on anything is just mad that they have no skill, and they are taking it out on the deck. I have used too many technics than I could list in the past ten years and never had one fail to exceed my demands. If you don't like it you don't deserve one let alone two.

Dj Rukiss

By Dj Rukiss

from Japan

These are far the best turntables on the planet. As everyone else, I also own a pair of the MKII's and those are phenomenal, the thing I like about these are the overall dependability, they are durable, and very versatile, you can improve you mixing techniques with these, once the pitch is locked it is locked. They feel like you have owned just as long. Be strong and try not to sell your MKII because those are history compared to these.
