Im sure there are people who learned on teh Pioneers so this deck would be awkward to them without more steady vinyl practice. It is more sensitive than an Analog deck though that is for sure.
I like the DZs, but oddly enough, I chose the Pioneers because they felt and acted more like real vinyl to me. Until two weeks ago, I had been vinyl-only for the past twelve years. It seems to me that the people who buy DZs or Denons do so because they've never touched a record, and assume that that's what it must feel like.

Yeah to me the DZ's felt very cheap, especially when compared to the SL-1200's. I definitly think the pioneers are of a higher quality.. though I don't think they're the tanks that the SL-1200's are.

Pioneers feel more like Vinyl...... Thats the first time I think ive ever heard that...

A plastic somewhat lose jog wheel that doesnt move.. What kind of turntable were YOU using before that LOL. Loose clicky buttons. Shrug, to each his own.

I mean I can respect peoples opinions, but Trog, yours made absolutely no sense to me :P The people I know bought the DZ because it does feel more like a record compared to a stationary jog wheel you push backwards and fowards.

Ive owned both, shrug. So thats where I get teh feel of the cheapness from the Pioneers. Their mixers feel the very same way to me as well. Like Im going to snap off one of their EQ knobs.

I suppose I love metal more than I love plastic too

Oh I gotta throw this in, Denons use a Belt Drive. That feels even worse than the Pioneer. My ranking, DZ, Pioneer, and then somewhere under the rest of the old school CDJs t he Denon.

I personally think both the DZ and CDJ-1000 feel like cheap POS's...I just happen to choose the cdj-1000 (two of them actually)

Is that a new Denon out Skip? Cuz the 3000 and 5000 previous had Belt Drive.

In anycase that little 45 RPM disk on top throws me off heh.

I was caught once trying to set a pair of DZs on fire in a DJ booth I was working in. They took away my bottle of lighter fluid. I like CDJ 100s better. Yes 100s not 1000s.

edit: your set-up is pretty nice btw...i see that you are a fan of stanton...

2 edit: there seems to be a gap between the cartridge and the stylus...does your have this...

i dont fing any major problems with these carts. i put 3 gramms of weight instead of the recommended 4-5 gramms and i rarely have skipping issues. great sound, great looks.
im not a fan of stanton i think....i just find Stanton's top of the line (T.120/ST.150 + M.304/505/505FX) the best for the money i.e. M.304 = 350, T.120 = 460.....

and now i've added SSL and im shocked how flawless it works
