Thread: Technics mod with Numark TTX tonearm system

    Technics mod with Numark TTX tonearm system

    I have been digging for the life of me in DJ Forums and on Google and I cannot find a photo of this mod for the life of me. Several years ago I came across a shop's website (which I believe is based in Texas) where they did turntable modifications and DJ mixer reconditioning. Specifically, they did a mod where they installed Numark's interchangeable tonearm onto a Technics SL-1200.

    I thought I saw a photo here on DJ Forums of a turntable with that mod. I just needed a photo for a video essay I am doing (with permission of the owner of course).

    If anyone remembers this shop's website, or name, or have a photo of this mod, please leave it in the link below. Thanks in advanced.

    Quite a popular arm mod is installing a Rega arm. If you Google it, you'll find a few. They are really good on a 1200/1210. I've never heard of a Numark arm being installed, probably for good reasons.

    I've seen that mod, and it's pure crap. They simply mount an SME cartridge mount where the wand is supposed to be, and screw a TTX armwand on. The PROBLEM is that the geometry for both the straight and S-shaped TTX tonearm wands mounted on the Technics armbase will be about an inch off (the S-arm is already a bit off on the TTX), therefore making the arm perform worse.

    I might have a piture saved on my old laptop. I'll take a look.
