The pitch slider is plastic but feels and looks like metal with a center-click and an LED on the side to show when you are at absolute zero. The pitch slider is built nice and solid just as with the other buttons on the unit. Above the pitch slider is another button that allows users to change the direction of the platter Forward and Reverse with a small LED indicator that lets the DJ know which way the turntable is set to spin.
Everything else is a mixture of metal and plastic, but it all feels very, very similar to the Technics 's once again. The platter is very sturdy and is metal Aluminum along with a Metal adapter that comes with the unit. Despite that sky-high price tag, the SLR should be considered one of the class leaders.

Here are some of its specific strengths:. In addition to having a pair of Technics s at home, many professional DJs use Technics in the club or on the road.
In terms of performance, the feel and drive of the platter can not be replicated by a controller. The response of the pitch control is excellent for beatmatching and the strong torque motor allows for accurate scratching and mixing. Plus, the design is awe-inspiring like a great piece of art. Over the course of your DJ career, you may own several controllers or mixers, but it's a high possibility that you'll have the same pair of Technics. Its starring torque is high, with the platter reaching speed within 0.
Produces surprisingly good sound, especially when paired with a good mid-priced cartridge. Interested in a high-performance, durable turntable? Well the might just be the one for you. Ltd service manual. Ltd service manual alt scan.

Working, a little dusty, but no scratches or dings and needed a manual - thank you. Now the journey begins on cleaning, learning replacing cartridges, and finding a pair of original covers as they came in road-cases without their original covers. I may need some help on my journey back to my old vinyls and I have some pristine jazz vinyls from the 60's and 70's to enjoy again.
Anyone know where best to find a pair of covers, please let me know. Great website! I saved years of pocket money to eventually get my 1st at
