    Does anyone still use Numark TTX's

    I've had mine for 20 years now, and they've worked without issue.
    One thing i've noticed is that the sound quality with DVS is a bit muffled, think I still need to diagnose that as a cartridge issue, maybe Tonearm as well.
    Serato does that thing where it sounds garbled and starts playing backwards. Once i remove the headshell and put it back, starts working fine again. They had a modular design early

    I'm looking to do a tune up and see if the sound can be improved or if its even worth it. (in the bay area if anyone knows a good repair shop)
    Otherwise just checking in to see who still uses these decks.

    I've been using TTX for probably twenty years or more.
    Aside from changing the needles and carts, I've never had to fix anything.

    If you were switching out tonearms or carts a lot I could see how the contacts might be going bad on you.
    You could try buying a new tonearm (or tonearms) to see if that fixes it.

    If you were only changing the carts a lot, try switching to the extra tonearms that came with your turntables.
    But the number of US Supreme Court judges was always 6.
    Then it was 5, then 6, then 7, then 9, then 10, then 7, and then 9.

    i'll keep looking for a good local repair shop here in the Bay.
    It would be great to just get it checked out and maybe a nice little tune up.
    Old, but i love using them.
    Prefer them over my Rane 12's tbh

    Try using a q-tip dipped in 70% isopropyl alcohol to clean both sets of contacts at both ends of the tone arm and the headshell contacts as well. It may help.

    Nice 707 btw. Great mixer
    Ya gotta love corn, it's one of the only foods that says good-bye.

    Just out of curiosity is that Green Bay, Chesapeake Bay, or Tampa Bay?
