exsqueeze me for being a materials engineering nerd but isn't it the bottom rubber that absorbs the vibration?
When designing parts aluminum is known to vibrate like a mofo compared to steel...and that's steel not rubber

apparently Dave Clarke swears by them.
Mostly I've heard negative reviews regarding these.
Pioneer owns this market and probably will for quite a while.

Does no one have anything good to say about the Techs?!
Has their reign as the king of the club truly ended?

i had a chance to review these Technics digital decks over the summer...they totally rock out!
the onboard sampling and FX tools are tops. really interesting stuff. if you are at all inclined to do mash-ups live t, then definitely check this out. great for looping on the fly (built in drive, lets you save a number of samples on the unit) .i also liked the TT emulation for spinbacks and other turntable tricks--but found i still preferred the digital cueing features, as I do on most digital decks.
