I hear ya. I happen to prefer a vinyl/serato solution, but it’s nice to have a standalone unit if that’s not you thing. No need to mess with software, comp crashes, or skipping needles.

Can this support the Tascam TTM-1? If so, I might grab a couple and dump my c314s.

I use two CD decks and a turntable. I don’t like being tied down to a computer. Scratch practice I do on the turntable; sampling I do off the turntable; listening while sitting around is done on the turntable . . . but mixes are burnt to CD-RWs and then erased when I’m done with them.

I guess it sort of bothers me to be using a nice pair of turntables as a glorified MIDI controller as well. If you wanna do vinyl — go and do vinyl, but DVSs just seem like overcomplicating the process.

You get a lot of effects right on your CD decks and sampling features — without adding more cables and controllers into your setup. I’m just not sold on the DVS thing yet, but not bashing it either.
