The Numark CDX DJ CD Player doesn't merely emulate a turntable - mechanically, it IS a turntable! Its ultra-high torque motorized 12-inch platter holds a real vinyl record for the ultimate in feel. Styled after the flagship TTX, the CDX features a 5.0 kgf/cm torque direct drive motor, aluminum platter, dual battle-style controls, and forward/reverse toggle. It also has a superior VFD display, slot-load CD transport, and extensive DSP functionality. The CDX has several modes for scratching and looping, including auto beat matching and effortless Smart Looping. Other features include extensive cue store/recall with multiple sets for each CD; beat-synched digital FX, including sonar, slide, filter, echo, & chop; and control wheel effects manipulation. The CDX offers a pitch slider programmable up to ±100% pitch control, as well as a high-quality, 100% Key Lock. About Numark - Numark is obsessed with designing equipment that meets the individual need of every DJ. That's why the sound of Numark has been present in scratches, breaks, and beats for more than 30 years. Before Numark develops new products, they ask these questions: What tools does a DJ need to create and deliver a signature sound? What functions and features will give a DJ ultimate control and creativity in battles, clubs, studios, weddings, and sets at the house at the end of the street? Numark's premise is that only one thing matters: the DJ's experience. From basic tools to the most advanced gear for forward professionals, their equipment is designed and engineered to stand up to the rigors of this experience. Numark is proud to deliver the most advanced line of gear available today, including the world's highest-torque turntable motor, the world's first 100% digital 10-inch scratch mixer, and the world's first CD players that provide simultaneous control of multiple effects. Listening. Anticipating. Responding. Hear Numark.
A unique solution for DJs who love the feel of vinyl but want to use their CDs for mixing and scratching, the Numark CDX CD turntable literally combines the best of both worlds. Unlike other CD turntables, which merely mimic the construction of traditional record players, the CDX uses a genuine 12-inch record as the controlling interface. In other words, the CDX not only looks like a turntable, but it actually feels like one as well. The CD responds to each movement of the 12-inch record whether you're scratching, battling, or looping, resulting in a DJ experience that harnesses modern digital formats while feeling as smooth and tangible as classic vinyl.
The CDX employs the same ultra-high-torque direct-drive motor as Numark's flagship TTX turntable, with adjustable start and stop times. It's also the same height as traditional turntables, and its dual start/stop buttons reside on either side of the platter, making it easy to position the turntable for "standard" or "battle" use. Among the CDX's shared CD/turntable features are impressive +/- 6, 12, 25, and 100 percent pitch control ranges; a key lock function that keeps vocals and music in the proper key even when the tempo increases dramatically; a built-in beatkeeper that delivers accurate and instant beat-per-minute readouts; and a DSP processor that lets DJs employ such effects as echo, slide, sonar, bleep, and filter--all controlled by a dedicated wheel. DJs can also activate the stutter function to instantly jump around within the track, or they can use the 3,000 cue points when loading a new CD to immediately access specific passages. And thanks to the quick-loading CD slot, DJs can swap out discs in no time at all.
Though Numark supplies a 12-inch LP for the slipmat, any record will do (it's the wheel that controls the CD, not the record). DJs can also synchronize the CDX with drum machines and other MIDI devices due to the MIDI I/O. Additional features include a S/PDIF digital output, a bright VFD display that shows beats per minute, time, and unit status, and anti-shock buffer technology. The CDX measures 17.75 by 3.62 by 14.5 inches (W x H x D) and is covered by a two-year warranty.
