I'm sorry for the ignorant question, but I just left a yard sale after purchasing a (pretty much) brand new turntable for $15.
It's a Gemini XL-100 and I guess it's main purpose is for DJ-ing? Now this poses a question from me, is there any big difference between a turntable marketed/produced for DJ's and what I call a normal turntable?
I saw this thing and I just had to have it. It looks nice, brand-new condition, has pitch controls, a strobe AND a removable headshell
The AKAI ap-b20 turntable (pictured in my avatar) I have currently is missing a dust cover and the motor is starting to show it's age. I LOVE that turntable, but would it be silly to replace it with this Gemini thing? To be honest, when I read the words, "Visit us at www.geminidj.com
" on the box, I got bummed... the word "DJ", when it comes to turntables, for some reason automatically makes me think, "Not a Turntable", and I put my nose up. Hah, when I think of it, I remember that my AKAI was used by a DJ and had a DJ stylus on it when I first got it. Maybe I'm being silly and it really doesn't matter?
I can't wait to hook it up and have a listen, but I can't at the moment and so figured I'd write this.
Thanks in advance and please discuss!
