Targeted at DJs on a budget.

Numark has unveiled a new affordable direct-drive turntable, the NTX1000.

Designed from the ground up, it features an S-shaped tonearm with height adjustment, damped cueing, three pitch ranges (± 8, 16, and 50%) and is built to be resistant to heavy vibrations and external feedback.

Numark are the latest brand following Pioneer and Denon in trying to step into the gap left by Technics, whose new SL-1200GR deck has priced out many DJs.

As the company says: “Numark recognizes your need for a professional turntable that capitalizes on the resurgent popularity of vinyl for DJ gigs. But we’re mindful that you need for both versatility and value. The NTX1000 gives you everything you’re looking for.”
