i dont't really think it will ever become the leading product...

sure it would be nice fot people who want both.. and cheap.. and have less space!

but ass for alot hybride's... they never get the Quality of both at 100%!

look at Cell Phone's from for example sony ericson

good phone..
nice cam..
but a camera on its own is at like? 7+ MP? with better zoom/autofocus etc

and then again.. if 1 player goes down.. you have 3 left
if 1 hybride goes down? uhm 1 player? that would suck Winking my eye

I doubt the big succes for these units. It looks like, but it is always a compromise of features/functions. Numark is doing a nice job but all others basically %$^ Winking my eye

I put No no your poll.
I don't think there is a future for this product.

The layout is not that good, but this time it really is the turntable look with the pitchfader on the right-bottom. Not right-top like the CDX/HDX.
I think people will rather buy 2 seperate units. Maybe it's something for those people who don't have the space for more equipment.

It COULD be a succes, depending on what the manufacturers will do. If they focus on the professional-circuit and make sure their product is reliable on every point...

maybe then small bars or discos start to use these products because they are cheaper (at least that's the guess??) and they take less space.

But I can imagine that a lot of dj's will ignore this product, simply because they think it's crap, but what if for example a company like Pioneer (a company well respected by a lot of djsHappy, laughing) comes with a beautiful product combining the two functions, but I think then we're talking about the future, far away. (pioneer just launched new cd-players).

for the one who chose "hybridsConfused" 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.

I dont think there is a future for hybrids due to 1 simple reason. Vinyl is not part of the future when it comes to music. In 10/20 years vinyl wil be no more so what is the point of hybrid units?? They are defintly not here to stay, give me proper TTs and some CDJs any day.

For the rentall I think it will be crap but for the bedroom dj's it can be a good tt/cd-player because you arent moving it the whole time and if you wan't to use them in the rentall you will need special cases for those hybirds.
So my opinion is that these hybirds will be a great option for the bedroom who want to mix with vinyl and cd's and who don't have an hunormous budget.

I dissagree with you at that point because vinyl will be the future, but the competition is big because of the new harddrive players and so on but vinyl will keap existing

no mate, no chance vinyl will be around in 20 years, vinyl are not the future, on the complete contrary vinyl are the past. They are bad for the environment + More and more DJs are using CDs because they are lighter, it is easier to access music (Internet) and one can do so much more with CD then with Vinyl. Vinyl is anything but the future. Because of that i dont think hybrids will ever hold any significant share of the market.

As long as I have my records, I will play vinyl.
And that could last longer then 20 years.

But I think Hybrides are not going to be that popular,because when you have the money for one, you could buy a single cd player and a turntable fr the same price.

but ontopic we were talking about hybrids.

and i agree with mrpechoWinking my eye

TheSupercrab    posted on 25-05-2006 17:30
thats not the point... Old stuff is always round, go look in a museum there are dinosaur bones there,, but dinosaurs arent around anymore are they? Winking my eye. The point is that people lookin to buy new gear in the near future wont be lookin to buy TTs anymore and thus not this hybrid either as vinyl is a thing of the past. The people that already have vinyl will already have TTs and thus not have as much interest in buyin a new Hybrid.. as lets face it they cant really beat a stand alone TT.

I don't think vinyl will die, take A look ////www.djresource.eu/Topics/story/21/Hoe-snij-je-vinyl-/
(sorry nederlands)
First it says that vinyl is the lift. second, vinyl isn't only been used in dance music. instead some popular dutch artist are recording their songs on vinyl. ok so that point of isseu is gone.

and I think, after have been reading t4twister his opinion, that hybrids ARE going to make the market (small proportions)  but will not conquer the world:P

also, vinyl seems to know a new hot-period(in dutch I mean: bloeitijd)
tnx for supporting my opinion Engage:P.

I heard that denon is going to place(sorry my english) also a hybrid on the market.
correct me if i'm wrong

It gets the best of both words I'd say. I'm a vinyl lover, and like to use CDs for portability, but recently purchased Serato. But, you can't always rely on computers today, you'll never know what will go wrong. I know Gemini and Numark made hybrids, and I hear Gemini is coming out with the CDT-05 MKII soon, but I heard it looks the same. Does anyone know of any other companies that have made hybrids? I wish Technics would come out with one, and this time, have the cd slot in the battle position. The mixing position is good, but I guess figuring that out will be up to the preference of the DJ, so there will be a debate on that. I say hybrids will be here and noticed, but maybe not widely used, but it's nice that it implements turntable and cd into one thing.
