Belt Drive vs. Direct Drive Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

I'm going to be getting my first set of turntables soon, and I'm wondering, are direct drive so much better that I should spend the 100$ extra for them?
Argh just realized this should be in the DJ equipment forum, sorry.

DO NOT GET BELT DRIVES!!

i cant say that enough.

They are a pain in the arse and if you do get to club level you'll be buggered as no clubs will have belt drives.

If they do have them then they are probably a shit club and you're better off not playing there! Big Grin

Wow I remember my first turntables... the gemini 100s belt drive or some shit(dj box) back in the day, closing a door in our house made the needles bounce and the turntable would slow down almost to a complete stop haha wow I was like 10 I actually ended up selling those to a friend for more than they originally were
funny you actually had to push the fuckers to get em up to speed Hihi

Nah I don't even know if I'll like mixing with turntables so I won't be getting 1210's.

yes yes they're probably pretty crappy but they're a start.

ive played around on those tables and believe me there just a slight bit better than the best belt drive turntable on the market, 1210s or 1200s are the way to go or the vestax pdx2000mk2s are nice(straight arm though) and like a lil numark mixer for now and then upgrade later after you save some more dough, its alot easier than buying another pair of turntables...good tables = long life
bad tables = short life and frustrating Big Grin
