    Technics SL-1200 MK2 - Technics turntables will never let you down!

    by nin1 on 01-09-2014 08:30 PM Most of the Djs you can see in the clubs, consider the Technics 1200 mk2 as one of the best turntables a music enthusiast can have. If you are starting to learn the basics of this amusing profession, there is no doubt that the technics products should be more frequent in the learning process. The 1200 mk2 version was dealing with a few changes since its first release in 1972, and its developers have made a fantastic turntable, which became a trademark in the hip hop culture because they were using it as an instrument. One of the notable advantages, is the weight of this turntable, which is 31 pounds. Yes, it is unusual for a turntable to weight as much as this, but it is a characteristic that provides a better sound quality since it is absorbing the vibrations from the speakers. Besides the marvellous weight feature, many users are disappointed in the lack of pitch adjustment beyond 8% and its developers aren’t willing to change it, even when some of the competitions were offering a better pitch adjustment. But, the ability to avoid any change of speed is on the highest level and the beatmatch will always be on point. Technics 1200 mk2 is the default music tool for almost every respectable DJ today, and even if it is amazing for the clubs, it can still do an amazing job in the audiophile world. The people, which are involved in the world of sound and pay an extraordinary level of details when it comes to achieving the perfect sound, are satisfied from Technics 1200 mk2 and suggest it to everyone who has doubts about it. There won’t be any rumble problems with this turntable because of the quality creation and weight of the product. Every DJ would have issues in the clubs if rumble and instability appears. Maybe one of the most important parts of the turntables is the tonearm because it's crucial when it comes to having a great sound. Technics weren’t developing a new tonearm for this turntable and it is an outdated feature that is not a good thing for the audiophiles. So, if you purchase a second hand Technics 1200mk2, you will need to change the tonearm if you are interested in a better sound. A creation that is built to last has never failed the people who follow the work of Technics and some of the characteristics can’t be found in other turntables. Having the ability to make a quick start-up with only 0.07 seconds, is an amazing feature to provide in the 70s. The torque motor is making a huge difference from the other turntable companies. The authentic moulded aluminium Diecast cabinet and heavy rubber base material keep the product undamaged. All of the vibrations a regular turntable has, can’t be found in Technics 1200 mk2. Today, used Technics 1200 mk2 can be purchased for a huge price, which is almost close to the regular price of a new turntable. The developers aren’t releasing this product anymore, so a used Technics is the only option if you are willing to have an excellent turntable in your home. Always avoid using Technics 1200 from DJs since their condition won’t be on a satisfying level. This is a very important characteristic for the audiophiles and for the people that don’t want to replace it with another turntable in a few years. Pros: - Built to last - Sliding pitch control - Designed for professional DJs - Audiophile quality - Absorbs vibrations - Perfect beatmatching Cons: - Technics doesn’t release them anymore - The second hand price is almost as expensive as a new turntable - Lack of pitch adjustment beyond 8% Read more on Audiofanzine

    Cort EVL-K6 - White Pearl - My favorite skyscraper. And loooooin.

    by bloodjob on 09-30-2014 06:27 AM We will not go back on it. She is severely burnée. Tailored for the métoool. Between the EMG 81 AND 85 active duo beat up the riff and solo send the ebony fretboard which I think good so beautiful and wonderful to play and that keeps out floyd mullet I make him live ... What? I bought the satin black model, fascinated by inlays shaped Pentacles and the cross that goes from the box 11 15 Magnificent.

    Cort X-6 - Cobalt Blue Satin - A great surprise

    by bloodjob on 09-30-2014 06:02 AM In short: 24 frets, rosewood fingerboard, two humbucker, single, 3 positions, a split on the volume and tone. Mine is cobalt blue satin. Abandoned by his former master who sold me a piece of bread (100 balls, with lots of accessories, a bargain!) I restored set and I plan to put her wildest soon microphones. Equipped with basic EMG HZ passive and less punchy version of the EMG 81 and 85, I admit that I stayed on my hunger. Amazing, I have another cort evl K4 and a small EMG out sound perfect for ringworm good trash or technical metal Read more on Audiofanzine

    Cort X-6 Assassinator Special Edition - It is the guitar

    by bloodjob on 09-30-2014 05:43 AM I saw there some time, and I wanted her big sister. But too expensive (over € 1,100, a must in Cort). The design and finish are breathtaking, in the tradition of the finest dean! The inlays on the fretboard are beautiful and as usual 'with Cort, quick sleeves do as highways, well finished and fretted. 24 boxes of happiness, two full humbucker to single coil patatew anecdotal (I still do not see the interest), supported by a push pull to split the two humbucker. Floyd holds good agreement. Nothing to say. This is by far my best guitar, pat against, I quickly put him active EMG story she roars as she deserves! Read more on Audiofanzine

    DigiTech RP500 - The best way ahead of the other

    by bloodjob on 09-30-2014 04:56 AM No need to return it. All effects are present. Note the harmonizer which allows interesting simulation of 12 strings, the famous and infamous whammy settings maladd (haha detuuuuune the effect). The big plus is that in addition to being usable mode multi-effects pedalboard AND, it is also possible since the update, make a damn good looper. Besides the plethora of connectivity, the USB plug to turn it into sound without latency map (yes, tested and approved under guitar rig). Brief. Abused do so complete. Note that simus hi gain amps sound great. Absolute disgrace to those who dare say otherwise. We must connect the AC on a sound system or powered speakers for neutral understand !!! Obviously if one is beast enough to go through the grain of an amp + hp his shit, obviously it sounds cold and mushy or acid. Read more on Audiofanzine

    Hydrogen Music 0.9.6 - in progress and always free

    by hhub92 on 09-30-2014 02:14 AM Easy installation under Windows 8.1 although this is still a beta version; This original sub ubuntustudio FEDORA CCRMA, Tangostudio or KXstudio in the stable version Linux, but the update is there: Linux, 0.9.6 is stable since August 2014. General configuration easy: to change anything in Windows, use Jack Linux. Incompatibilities: not really, but to make a multitrack output on Windows, it is not yet that ... Jack Windows refers to ASIO4ALL, not multitrack sound card but super strong. Otherwise, works well. The manual, tutorials and videos have evolved and it's not bad, I found the answer to some of my questions. It's clear, that's enough for routine use or advanced, if one builds his drumkits for example. Read more on Audiofanzine

    Tascam US-2000 - My Baby

    by sacchetta on 09-30-2014 01:41 AM TASCAM US 2000 - great product and features, even better price. The TASCAM US 2000 is a USB 16 input 4 output analogue to digital converter. This audio interface takes up just a single rack space where others would fill at least 2. With a street price of about $400 USD it's pretty irresistible. The US 2000 was an obvious choice for my needs. I wanted at least 8 pre-amped channels, however my biggest need was more than 2 outputs. When I realized the US 2000 had 6 TRS inputs on the back I knew I had to have it. This gave me the option to pretty much mic up a whole 5 piece rock band into one single rack space unit. Specs: -44.1/48/88.2/96kHz sample rate -16/24 bit rate -20Hz to 20kHz, +/-1dB(MIC IN to MONITOR OUTPUT) frequency response -Signal to noise ratio - 90dB(LINE IN to MONITOR OUTPUT,20kHz LPF + A-weighted) -100ohms -2.4kohms input impedance -Nominal input level of -60dBu(when gain knob is at maximum) -4dBu(when gain knob is at minimum) -Maximum input level of +12dBu -Line inputs have a -10dB +4 dB switch -Mono or stereo switch for each pair of input channels (with exception of digital channels) -Phantom power switch for every 2 pre-amped inputs -16 inputs (8 Pre-amped + 6 TRS line in + 2 S/PDIF) -Tracks 7 & 8 have insert jacks in the back -2 dedicated monitor outputs -4 line outputs (1-2 reflect the monitor outputs) -1 headphone jack on front with dedicated volume knob (100mW+100mW or more (32ohms loaded)) -Monitor & computer output knobs on front -Input monitoring knob -100 LED meter for input and output -USB 2.0 -Cubase LE 5 included -Power - AC100V to 240V, 50/60Hz - 14W consumption -Dimensions - 482.6(W)×44(H)×280(D)mm -Weighs 2.5kgRead more on Audiofanzine

    by mfredo on 09-29-2014 08:38 PM In the war of wham's now raging, I'll be very objective! we are in the pure cloning GIBSON PAF 58, with a strong vintage identity matching (for me) the perfect replica of a Gibson set this year! I mean 1958 and not 59! After trying a lot of Paf at Gibson, throbak, and so on! I discovered the hysteric remains (for me) the best cloning a set gibson 1959! However, I wanted a set approaching the granular identity of a 58 LP! (I know there's crazy everywhere) With the guidance of Guy (dealer Mojo and Hysteric) of at Micros-shop, he knew perfectly meet my expectations by making this set of micro-measure. C microphones are simply "enjoyable" and turns your lp (for me by R8) in a vintage war machine, they give a strong character to your LP. sound, grainy 58 finally found, warmth, sustain to return this fire Gary Moore !, a balance between the bass and treble pickups sublime! wild harmonies end endof bends animate this set, always breaking point but never win, never drool! the gameplay is simply "graalesque" is literally immersed in the chewing gum! My lp has finally found his feet shoes! For those seeking the mojo tone of LP58, go !!! Assembly preferably with a kit womanTone !!! Read more on Audiofanzine

    Marshall Major - Pitch Black - Good surprise ... to rock!

    by Mc.redneck on 09-29-2014 06:42 PM I use it for a few days. Nothing like a "monitoring" model that will be far more linear, better insulated, built better but much more expensive. So here is my opinion. It is ONE thing, he did well, do not ask him more. I think it's a real bias on the part of the manufacturer, and I must say I find it successful. Read more on Audiofanzine

    Ecler nuo 2.0 - Ecler quality ...

    by Elenel on 09-29-2014 03:05 AM I've had two weeks. In use scratch / Sampling, I needed it for the crossfader and audio quality. She has no legs but can eventually fix the Racker (seen in the manual). I think the connection is already summarized, we have everything you need, although output would have pleased me Jack 6.35. But there's still the XLR so we will not complain .. The EQ is perfect for what I do, the buttons switch to a frequency killer are convenient to cut the bass to scratch, and I imagine the possible effects for a live DJ mixes. on the other hand I searched a bit in the manual the actual frequency of 3 bands with no result ... There's also a microphone input 6.35, perfect to carry around a live set for a big session Hip Hop ... It can turn into a line input for a third assignable PFL RCA input with EQ High and low and a knob volume. Read more on Audiofanzine

    Amt Electronics TC-3 Tube Cake - Good, but could do better ....

    by Johnny R on 09-28-2014 11:31 PM Given that there are very few reviews for this product, here's mine, which will probably shed some light on some people. Amp compact pedal format, transistors, emulating a sound lamps. 1 instrument input (or paper, or preamp), 1 power supply input, 1 output to HP 8 Ohms minimum. REAL power of 3 watts. 1 volume, 1 DEPTH knob, 1 knob PRESENCE ..... actually it's more or less bass and treble .... Weakness in my opinion: no on / off switch, or on the amp or the power supply (though an AMT) ...... so I added 1 inter bedside lamp style on the cord alim. Read more on Audiofanzine

    Pearl P-932 - Excellent!

    by free777 on 09-28-2014 11:30 PM I bought this double recently with our friends Teutonic! Models tested (I only mention those purchased): DW 7002 Double Camco Yamaha Flying Dragon DFP D. Drive, Pearl Eliminator, Axis A2, 9500 Yamaha D). What I do not like: the control setting to kick under the sole, only the orange cam provided, setting the heel with only two positions, no possibility to adjust the angle of the string to the Like the Eliminator ... and not direct drive. What I like most: his liveliness, responsiveness, simplicity, nevertheless, induced his philosophy of "more for less". The value for money is unbeatable (158 euros) and sprayed the competition ... and even above, such as the Yamaha 9500 D. This choice I would immediately, if necessary. But next year, I will pay her big sister. Test here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUs1GRO0UoA Read more on Audiofanzine

    Sony MDR-7510 - Incomprehensible & unpleasant
