for the one who chose "hybrids
" here it is
in this case of hybrids we're talking about a combination between a
turntable and a cd-player. There are already a few brands with those "hybrids", like gemini, numark and us blaster. I don't know for sure that you can cd-scratch with all those hybrids, but with the numark you can. The good thing of a hybrid is that it is very very compact. And in the case of numark, you don't have to buy a tt and a cd-player(like a cdx) seperatly. And if you look at the price you will see that(not in all cases )buying a cdx or a technics sldz-1200 and a tt is more expensive then a hybrid. But it also looks nice. The bad thing about it is that you can't(till now on)play the tt and the cd at the same time. I mean, if you play the cd and you switch to tt, the cd won't stop playing, but the sound stops. An other bad thing is that it has a lot of buttons and all kind of that stuff that can limit your movements.
And(like called above)the layout is not optimal, but I think thats a consequence of the attendance of the buttons. And some people think that if you combine a cd-player and a tt the quality will never reach 100%. But my opinion is that it will make the market.
