Hanpin Reloop rp7000mark 2 any good?

Postby Jah » 12 Dec 2017 09:49

Has anybody used this hanpin turntable just been released a month ago Reloop RP7000 Mark 2. The weight seems to be heavier then Technics SL1200/1210. Technics weighs 11kg. Reloop 11.7kg both specs are without box. The Technics may also have the weight of the plastic lid included but the reloop weight is without the plastic lid. Making it heavier then the Technics by a bit. Any views on this particular model? The wow and flutter seems to be a really low 0.01 percent. The overall quality of this particular turntable seems to be ok better then normal. Does anybody know what components are inside has a brushless motor if they are any good? Also doesn't seem to have the loose tonearm bearings and wobbly platter usually made by hanpin.

It takes time for something new to build a reputation. The only reviews that pop up are from the DJ community, and they can only describe features.

There are few videos online.

Just the weight seems to be good on theses heavier then the SL1200s.

Are there many other hanpin made in China Dj turntables which are heavier then the SL1200s

Is there any review regarding the same 16-pole, 3-phase, brushless motor theses hanpin turntables use. Cant find any real information about this motor

Don't be fooled by the weight. Some of the Hanpin OEM/Super OEM turntables are heavy simply because there's a lump of metal screwed to the base inside to make them weigh more.

As a note for those who are not in the know, the Reloop RP-7000 Mark II is a Hanpin OEM model DJ-3560 variant.

This gets worse and worse. Does the reloop rp7000 mk2 have metal screwed inside. Saw video online on rp7000 white turntable being opened up and fixed. Did not look like metal screwed to the base anywhere. Which hanpin has the metal screwed to the base. What model is this hanpin?

The AT-PL120 (non-usb early version of the AT-LP120 USB) for sure has that massive "feature" in it's basement. 'Been inside and saw it.

Does this mean there is not a single good hanpin turntable?

Especially with all the different companies releasing them but they all seem to be manufactured by Hanpin at the same plants in China or Taiwan.

If you're talking about lower-end direct drive turntables like the Audio Technica LP120 (aka the Hanpin DJ-45/DJ-U45), there are some reported flaws with it such as a noisy motor, defective anti-skating mechanism, and warped platters. The higher end Hanpin OEM turntables may have a lesser defective rate versus their lower-end players (like the dreaded Audio Technica LP60/Sony PS-LX300/Pioneer PL-990 derived from the Hanpin R200 and FU-700 OEM models).

Alternatively, the better approach is to get a used Technics SL-1200 and its variants (their SL-1X00 for example), provided that they're not previously abused by other DJs, which may have tonearm bearings being off.

Yes most seem to have wobbly platters speed issues and loose tonearm bearing being amongst the most common faults. The chances get a bit less of receiving a defective handpin if you pay almost double the cost of the Audio Technica LP60

Reloop`s don`t have wobble platters, Audio-technika can have. Reloop RP-7000 mk2 is actually the same as his predecessor, but with some cosmetical changes. Both are made on the same basic model as Pioneer PLX-1000. For home listening it is decent turntable, but you will have to buy dustcover separately and this can reach near the price of PLX-1000, which you get with dustcover and is little better designed.

the Mark 2 has a redesigned tonearm and extra weight. The reviews seem to be better on the Reloop then the pioneer.

How does the Denon VL12 compare to the Reloop / Pioneer?

Is it another Hanpin derived model or something else?

The higher-end Reloop and Pionner PLX-1000 is derived from the Hanpin DJ-5500 OEM turntable, which is colloquially known as the "Super OEM" turntable.

Upon some investigation, it appears that Yahorng Electronic Co. manufactures the Denon VL12, along with the Numark NTX1000 under an unknown OEM model.
