    Dj turnable for beginner

    Hi DJs,
    I would like to buy a dj turnable for learning mixing and scratching at home, maybe sometimes some party with friends and later I will see.
    I have a practice with mixing music on my mp3 console Pioneer dj and I would like to change to turnables.
    I have a question, which type is better, the budget is 300 EUR for one at the beginnig.

    1,Reloop RP-4000 MK2
    2,Pioneer DJ PLX-500-K
    3,Audio-Technica AT-LP120X USB

    or is it better to buy old and used for example Stanton t120?or something other?
    Thanks for your advice

    Look for a used Stanton ST.150 MKII (or similar Stanton ST.150, Stanton STR8.150). It's the best one and currently sells new for about 350 EUR in the USA. Which is probably about 400 EUR since Europe has such high import taxes and tariffs on everything.

    Or maybe an old used Technics SL-1200, but you need to get really lucky since they tend to fetch from 600 to 800 EUR.

    Not sure how popular they were in Europe but a used Numark TT500, TTX, or TTXUSB tends to be cheap in the USA and they are really good turntables.

    thanks, Stanton T150 cost more then 400 in EU.
    Reloop 4000 is not good?
    Maybe Reloop 8000 used will have a good price

    I'm not familiar enough with the 4000 to know. I know the Reloop RP-8000 was good and is reliable. The current RP-8000 MK2 is over 600 EUR new in the USA.

    If the 4000 has a strong enough motor and is built with the same quality as the 8000. I would recommend it. Reloop's top of the line models have always competed directly with Technics since they both (Technics & Reloop) tend to be higher priced than most other top of the line DJ turntables.

    Ánd what else the old used Stanton T120? Price 150eur is very good. I think it is a previous of stanton t150, no?

    Or new Pioneer plx 500 is also not very good?

    The 120 & 150 were out at the same time. The 120 was the mid-range model. Probably good enough but I've never used one. The PLX-500 is also the mid-range model, the PLX-1000 is Pioneer's premium DJ turntable. Also probably good enough but I've never used one.

    I don't know enough about the Stanton ST.120 or the Pioneer PLX-500 to recommend them or not recommend them.

    Mid-range DJ turntables are usually good enough if you don't plan on scratch a lot.

    the conclusion is:
    the better solution is to save more money and buy old used or new top level? better than new middle range?

    and the top level is?
    Nr. 1 of course Technics 1200/1210
    Nr. 2 Pioneer PLX 1000
    Nr. 3 Reloop 7000 or 8000 is it the same, but 8000 is little more digital, construction is the same?
    Nr. 4 Stanton T.150?

    I read that Audio-Technica AT-LP1240 and Reloop 7000/8000 and Stanton t.150 are made of the same components, chinesse Hanpin with changed logo and some thing. Is it true?
    Only Technics and Pioneer are extra and original?



    Thanks

    Numark TT turntables and Denon VL12 turntables are also not Hanpin super OEM turntables.

    I suspect the new Numark NTX1000 is a Hanpin since it looks like a Hanpin super OEM to me. One of the Audio-Technica turntables is a Hanpin super OEM but I forget which model number.
