They don't? There goes my distorted image of Technics - the great DJ company...
So, my out-of-the head top recommendations of decks are now:
Numark TT-X, Vestax (the one with 50 % pitchcontrol) for phono and Pioneer CDJ-1000Mk2, Numark CD-X or Denon S5000 for CD.
Bey Technics. Sure, their products are still fine, but I think Numark,
Denon, Pioneer and Vestax have taken over the market in Technics was
the best once.
