Not really a scratch cd-player - I would say the Numark Axis 9 beats it
on this front. Both are actually budget class in scratching terms, but
the Axis has 4 modes and the jog feels... nicer? Can't explain.
But then again, the Denon S3000 and S5000 are somewhat upper middle
class, while the Pioneer CDJ1000mk2 and 800 are lower middle class.
Numark CD-X is the high class... All in view of scratching of course.
For non-scratching purposes, I'd say this cd-player is excellent for its price.
(Personally, I think the Axis 9 is the better alternative still, though - and beauty is within the eye of the beholder
