Hi,

I want to convert my vinyl collection. My main priority is to have the tracks with a constant pitch! It's dance music and I will use the digital files for djing. I really need the beats to be aligned to a grid, just like they are if the record is playing at 0% pitch.

I already have a Technics 1210 MK5 and it's great for djing! It does a great job and the beats stay aligned. But I know there are turntables with better sound quality. Wonder if it's worth to buy a new turntable just to "rip" (I know it's not the right term) my vinyl collection. But as I said, it's absolutely necessary that the pitch stays constant. If it changes then it's really bad for what I do.

I hope you understand me

Thank you

I've heard rumors that Matsushita doesn't even manufacture the bearings anymore - the tooling for that has been spun off to a third party. At this point, manufacturing variations are probably far higher in magnitude than the differences between the 12x0 models in terms of audibility.

Hi 212121

I'm doing the exactly the same thing as you on a technics mk 2 but i modifying my deck to be an audiophile 1210. I'm digitizing my entire record selection (lots of oldskool hardcore, jungle D&B) to use with serato. If you were willing to spend a little more i reccomend you upgrade the tonearm to a modified rega 250 tonearm (origin live).

http://www.tonearm.co.uk/tonearm.htm



The 1210 is a solid performer which is let down by the poor tonearm. The origin live modified rega tonearms are reported in numerous hifi magazine reviews of having the audio quality a tone arm in 1000-1500 region and is as an absolute must for around 300 with all the modifications made. I picked up mine for 190 pounds on ebay with the structural, internal wiring and external wiring modifications already fitted, absolute bargin!!. Saying all this tho i hav'nt actually heard the tonearm perform yet as i'm having it fitted in a few days time. So i shall report if i think its as dramtic as i hope it will be. Also i'm torn on cartridge choice. I'm not looking for something incredibly accurate and precise rather warmer and well represented in the lower end obviously i'm torn between the Grado DJ200i or splashing out for the prestige Gold. I'm leaning towards grado as i've heard repeatedly that they are quite a warm sounding pleasent and very nice in the bass dept which is a must for me. Also i have bought moth mk II vacuum record cleaner as obviously my vinyl has never been cleaned properly is around 15 years old and generally quite heavily abused.

Just cant wait to get up and running and hear my tunes like i've never heard them before!!!
