Numark Intros High Tech X2 Turntable

Numark has introduced a new turntable, the X2, that combines CD & vinyl functions into one hybrid unit.

The X2’s CD player offers full MP3 playback capability as well as the ability to scratch, loop, manipulate and pitch adjust both audio and MP3 data CDs. Since both the CD and turntable can be played simultaneously, this hybrid turntable is, according to Numark, “a bridge between the comfort and control of vinyl and the expansive capabilities of digital music output.”

The X2 Turntable retails for about $1,000.
