    Top comment

    "It seemed like an afterthought where the designers just pressed a piece of plastic, and deemed it an acceptable cover. Now all very high-end turntables do not have mounted covers. ...I always had an interest in later model turntables and never thought I would find one that could replace the high-end vintage ones I had used in the past. However, something recently caught my eye; the new Victrola Carbon turntable that offers everything I would want in a new turntable plus many added useful features for the tech enthusiast in me. "

    Top comment

    "I love that I can personalize the look with any 7 inch record - sure having real records spinning is just for looks, but the platters are actually useful and bring a legitimate feel to a performance art that has true history with vinyl. ...I think this is a great option since somebody like me, a newbie, doesn’t need the most high end fader to start with, and the more affordable factory fader that comes installed is perfect for my needs.

    Product Description

    A modern take on a DJ controller that emphasizes the tactile feeling of vinyl turntables, the DJControl Inpulse T7 motorized DJ controller from Hercules is here to deliver old-school feel in the modern age! The dream of many aspiring DJs has long been rooted in the past, in the days of spinning vinyl records and creatively transitioning between tracks to add a little of the DJ’s own distinct flavor to the mix. Turntablism and vinyl are synonymous with those early days of Djing, and the innovators of the art used these tools to create a lasting image of DJs as taste-making, music-manipulating icons. Today’s modern DJs have taken to spinning on digital controllers with motorized jog wheels, vinyl discs, and slipmats that pay homage to the first DJs who paved the way for their modern success.

    "The AT-VM540 has greater definition in the mid-range and highs while maintaining the bass. The separation between L and R channels is greater and the dynamic range slightly better as well. ...I'll be honest I went into thinking how much can it really sound better.... well, lets just say it's life changing sound difference. Highs and lows are so much cleaner and its ability to push through previously questionable skipping songs makes it worth every penny!!!!"

    Product Description

    The VM540ML/H combo kit includes the VM540ML MicroLine® dual moving magnet cartridge premounted on the AT-HS10BK universal 1/2"-mount headshell. The VM540ML MicroLine stylus cartridge is the premier 500 Series model in Audio-Technica’s new VM cartridge line – a line that harks back to A-T’s early days as a manufacturer primarily of high-end phono cartridges, while also incorporating today’s advanced technology. Like all VM cartridges, the VM540ML is equipped with dual magnets that are positioned to match the left and right channels in the stereo record groove for outstanding channel separation and extended frequency response. The cartridge’s MicroLine stylus allows it to trace the record groove with incredible accuracy, resulting in nuanced audio reproduction that elliptical and conical styli simply can’t match. The stylus’s multilevel shape also wears better than other styli, while reducing the wear on your records. Includes mounting hardware. VM dual magnet cartridge with MicroLine stylus. Aluminum cantilever. Paratoroidal coils improve generating efficiency. Center shield plate between the left and right channels reduces crosstalk. Durable low-resonance polymer cartridge housing. Universal ½"-mount headshell for 4-pin turntable cartridges.
