Beside its "flaws" it has some distinctive (meaning you won't find those at any other player) features that may appeal to some DJ's.Free Wheel
Not available on jog dial CD decks, this feature gives you the ability to free wheel or coast like on an analog deck with the push of a button.SD Memory Card
The card is a removable, reusable device is capable of holding hours of media. Using the SZ-CB8 SD Audio Recording Kit, you can store your samples, scratches, breaks-even whole albums-and play an entire set using just a couple SD memory cards.Cue/Cue Bank/Cue/Pads
The SL-DZ1200 lets you find a cue point, save it and return to it at the touch of a button. Four self-illuminating cue pads allow you to set, save and seamlessly cue from exactly the point of your choice. It can memorize 50 sets (more if stored on an SD card) of 10 cue points as individual "albums." Each "album" also stores your settings for the four cue pads, loop points, auto cue condition and effects. As soon as your SD memory card or disc is loaded, your pre-saved settings are instantly available.Sample Pads/Sample Looping
Sample pads allow for editing, overlapping and playing back multiple samples. By sampling musical phrases, using the editing function to set the In and Out points, looping and mixing various samples, you can play the SL-DZ1200 like an instrument and use it to create original compositions.
The last two features you will find in a far less advanced versions on other decks.
If these unique, distinctive features are more important than its flaws compared to other brands of cd players, you may like the SL-DZ1200.
