Because of the english content I've moved it to the english language Forums.

Pretty interesting thing, allthough it raises a question : is it a CD player, a turntable or what ??

Can you please name a source of this information if it's quoted from a website ?
Let the BASS be louder

hmm,, I don't think this product is gonna make it on the market.. it's just the fantasy of numark, maybe they could try it about 10 years again.. the dj's from now will keep there gear I think they will say: or vinyl or cd and sometimes toghether but not in one gear. (thats what I think and I agreeWinking my eye)
djmamo    posted on 19-01-2006 17:25
i dont know what to think of this player....

i think its cheaper to buy 2 of these dan 2 tt's en 2 cd players.

and i like the disigne nice gray... but if it could work? i dont know
Lukaz    posted on 19-01-2006 17:35
yeah shure it's cheaper than 2tt's and 2 cd players but the people where I'm telling about have enough money to buy 2tt's and 2cd playersHappy, laughing but no comment on the disign.. I love it Winking my eye

Better looking then the gemini hybrid, definately.
But i don't know if the whole hybrid thing is a succes...

djmamo    posted on 19-01-2006 17:39
i dont know, Numark is really big in the usa.

and when many people buy this thing strange things can happen
ceesietopc    posted on 19-01-2006 20:16
I don't like CD/Vinyl combinations at all.
I think they are ehm.. Ugly

I like 1 cdj1000mk2 and 1 Synq xtrm much more
OR an DN-S3500 and an Akyama of course

-exuse me- -bad english-

I dont think that these hybrids are intuitive enough to ever hit it off in the clubs. If you look at the history of products that have done well in the club scene (1200's, CDJ1000's, DJM600, all the Dateq's), its that they all have quite a simple layout and you could figure out in under a minute how everything works. But, this might be a solution for the DJ's at home who have very little space for their gear. I must agree, though, that the design is very sexy; numark keeps on getting better and better in that aspect. The thing that might kill this mixer, i think, is its slot. It's designed in such a way that it renders it impossible to position your TT's in battle stance. And i think that if any group of users would benefit from these hybrid's, it would be the turntablists (and then mainly the hobyists i think); the total control of a turntable combined with the benefits of CD.
TheSupercrab    posted on 19-01-2006 20:59
What i think these hybrids miss is that you can not use both the Vinyl mode and CD mode at the same time..Thus it is still creativly much better to have a seperate CD player and TT as you can mix both sources together (ie use 1 cd player and a TT for ur mix and use your other Cd player for some samples). If they could make both modes useable at the same time Some how it would be a good machine.. Think its very hard to make duel mode useable however did Denon not do something like this on their dns-5000? A and B mode?

It's a Beaty! Does anyone know what this tt/cd player is going to cost? €€ 
Steev    posted on 20-01-2006 16:08
Its a nice thing, but i stay with my vinyl only. I think that it is very difficult to use it, a manual of 500 pages? :p
djmamo    posted on 20-01-2006 16:31
a normal dvd player got a manual of 500 pages, that aint much.

most of the manual goes about how to install and how to handel and what you dont may do

you have to take you hat off to numark.

fuck they have some creative people.

nog zo'n fantastisch concept van die gasten:

With a compact, tabletop form factor that fits anywhere, the VJ01 enables DJs to incorporate rich multimedia as part of their performances.
With a front loading disc tray and the ability to play DVDs, MP3 discs, and standard CDs, the VJ01 enables DJs to play a vast library of content, and its interface, based upon Numark’s CD players, makes operation a snap. Featuring a TFT LCD display, the new VJ01 also makes it easy to monitor one’s visual content and is the perfect tool for club and mobile DJs searching for a video solution.

The VJ01 provides a wealth of knobs, buttons and sliders to facilitate fast, intuitive operation—enabling DJs to easily set cue points, adjust tempo, looping, and other playback functions. With pitch bend buttons and a pitch slider, the VJ01 makes it a breeze to control pitch—for audio and video. Similarly this versatile unit provides a full set of soft touch rubber transport controls as well as dedicated navigation buttons for rapid access to the unit’s operating parameters. There are also display function buttons for working with visual content, and dedicated playback function buttons that facilitate fast, effortless control during performance.

With Numark’s VJ01, DJs will no longer have to focus elsewhere to monitor their visuals and risk being distracted from keeping the music flowing. The new VJ01’s integrated 5.6-inch LCD TFT tilt screen display enables the operator to know exactly what visuals are being displayed. The VJ01 provides full DVD menu control, supports all standard DVD features, and includes non-seamless looping for repeating video clips. The VJ01 effects arsenal includes zoom, angle, slow motion, and pitch. PAL and NTSC compatible, the unit provides S-Video and RCA composite video outputs for connection to external display equipment. Audio outputs include stereo RCA and S/PDIF.

Numark’s VJ01 plays a wealth of disc formats. Video formats include DVD, DVD-R, DVD+R, VCD, and SVCD. Supported audio formats include CD, CD-R, CD-RW, MP3DVD, and MP3CD.

Nice looking machine, I think if the price is not to high (maybe half of DJV) it will do very well. Looks easy to use. U may argue that it has no jogwheel. But as your self is a johwheel really required for visual mixing. So you could use that for just visual mixing, however if u have audio DVDs it will be annoying.
robertvisser    posted on 01-02-2006 14:25
wow!!!  sorry mensen ben nu eenmaal geen expert met foto's editen.
maar wilde gewoon ff deze recente info met jullie delen.

kwam de vj01 tegen op een amerikaanse site voor 795 dollar en dat is omgerekend 656.91 als ik me niet vergis.

best betaalbaar als dat werkelijk de prijs is.

This is an English spoken forum and topic. Make sure you answer in the language in which the forum topic has been opened. We have about 60% non-dutch speaking visitors each day and they might find this dutch not easy to understand.

If conversation in dutch is wanted, open another topic about this product in the Dutch DJ-Gear forum. Postings in a language that do not belong in a certain forum might be deleted.

2 RobertBisser/Liberty : this deck plays CD (audo or MP3), DVD with MP3 and vinyl. How the scratching works, I'm very curious but since these products haven't been seen in Europe yet I doubt if anybody can give good comments about that.

Let the BASS be louder
