Two heavily modded
Got these modded by Turntable Pimp: Mk5 pitch faders and removal of quarz lock Respray of tonearm base and deck case to Matte Black Internal Grounds Upgraded RCA cables Got the original Mk2 tonearms (one dating back to '82) with Ortofon Dj S cartridges and stylus. Great for scratching, sampling. Anything.
I managed to grab a pair of these right around the time they were discontinued (although I heard there is a petition to bring them back that Panasonic is actually paying attention to... fingers crossed), and I love them. I learned how to DJ on a set that a friend had, so it is really cool to be able to have some in-home to practice on instead of having to use a controller of some kind. I use them for sampling old records quite a bit as well, and they are pretty essential for crate diggers. Plus, there isn't really a better feeling than spinning on vinyl. It just feels so much more authentic.
