As turntables and vinyl seem to be hitting a new strides with newfound success in the DJ and consumer markets; the manufacturers who create these turntables are giving users options for all budgets and performance levels. Reloop has introduced a new video to accompany their new Direct Drive Entry level turntables with USB connectivity (for transferring a vinyl music library to the computer) called the RP-2000USB. These aren’t the powerhouse Super-OEM RP-6000/7000/8000, but they cost less than half of those models and they can still get the DJ-job done at a much lower cost.
Of course, with the Super-OEM, Vestax, and Technics model turntables the motor strength will be greater and there are even more features and adjustment options, but for a beginner to intermediate level DJ that is looking to get their feet wet in the vinyl or DVS world the Reloop RP-2000 USB will definitely fit the bill and it won’t cost an arm and a leg in the process…
