    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.
    thanks.
    Is better to buy something which is not Hanpin? :-)
    Numark TT, do you mean TT500? we have here only TT250

    TT500, TTX, & TTXUSB are high-end.
    TT250 is mid-range.
    TT1650 is junk.

    Hanpin is fine, some people prefer a Hanpin super OEM over a Technics SL1200.
    Also the first year the TTX was released there was a design flaw that caused some of them to overheat. They fixed it but their reputation was permanently ruined.

    From that website.

    I would pick the Numark NTX1000 @ 322 €.

    It's only 22 EUR over your budget and it's either a high-end Numark build or a Hanpin super OEM.

    thanks
    but why middle range is not enough for beginner who would like to learn scratching and mixing and doesnt know if it will be interesting for him or stop it few months later? :-)
    problem to change turnable later for high level or he could learn some fails on middle range turnables?

    top range: better to buy old Technics than new reloop 7000/8000 or new Pioneer PLX 500 or new Stanton t.150?because price old technics is the same as new Stanton t150,Reloop 7000 and Pioneer 1000

    yes but in the other shop is christmas action for Reloop RP 8000 for the same price.
    Which is better? reloop 8000 or Numark NTX1000?
    beside midi functions of reloop, which of this two has better construction,drive, brake etc.?
    Thanks

    I would go with the Reloop 8000 even if the functions were equal.
    The Numark is probably a new build by Numark so it's reliability isn't as well established as a super OEM. I do know the NTX1000 is lighter than the TT500, TTX, and TTXUSB which sugests it might not be as rugged as the older Numarks.

    i found that Reloop is 9.7 kg and Numark 9.47 kg.
    Reloop has a lot of midi and electronic function, it wouldnt be the reason of a lot of problems and breakdowns in the future?it is reloop rp8000, not MK2
    wow, today, Stanton t.150 m2 also is in this price :-) weight 10.2 kg

    I still have a dilema, new Numark 320 EUR, new Reloop 8000 for 350 EUR, new Stanton150 for 350 EUR and now I have offer of used old Technics 120 MK2 for 390 EUR.which one? :-)
    little bit more than budget but I have some reserve.
    maybe issue for new thread.

    thanks

    Of those three I would go with the Stanton ST.150 M2.
    The worst complaint from the Stanton ST.150 is they used that soft rubbery finish on their buttons. Which, like belts in a cassette deck, starts dissolving over time and become all sticky.

    It looks like the MK2 might have regular hard plastic buttons.

    That's a good price if it is in good condition and doesn't need to be repaired.

    Watch YouTube videos on what to look for when buying a used Technics.

    You don't want to spend almost four-hundred Euros and then pay somebody else another hundred Euros or two-hundred Euros to fix it.

    now action for Stanton is finished, sold :-(
    only new Reloop 8000 with 3 years guarantee or old Technics, maybe 15 y.o. maybe 20 y.o. maybe more - the seller doesnt know, he bought it used, like a second hand and repaired (calibration, changing some potentiometers, cables etc.)
    ...if Technics in a good condition and also 50eur more expensive, better than new Reloop 8000?or Numark NTX1000.
    Thanks
