Agree about the clanger. As with all the Hanpin clone decks the Pioneer is a retrograde step regarding engineering, however, SQ wise it is reported to be slightly better.

You mad fool you *scratch_one-s_head*. Should have sold it to Plastic Penguin as he was looking for a decent Technics deck. Oh well. Okay so it's now gone and you want something more up to date and possibly a smidge superior to the Technics SQ wise, there's only one on the market that fits that bill at the mo and that'll be the Pioneer PLX1000. All of the current crop of direct-drive DJ decks are just Hanpin clones of the real master..... the Technics.
audioaddict said:yes doug thank you, i think you were the only one who responded with any sense of what i was trying to achieve by selling the technics.....something more uptodate and possible better sound quality and your pioneer plx1000 fit the bill perfectly, especially after the reviews i read on it. for now i will keep the technics but i will keep pondering this as i,m sure even though the technics is bloody good it doesnt mean its perhaps the best or hasnt been matched, thanks anyway.
