The Reloop RP-8000 combines modern DJ technology in an advanced turntable. This hybrid high torque turntable combines direct drive technology with a digital control section for your DJ software. The RP-8000 is able to communicate with any midi compatible DJ software. Serato Scratch Live mappings are also available to control the popular DVS system. With the Trax encoder, you can scroll through your playlists and easily load tracks onto the decks. The RP-8000 features four combinable performance modes, allowing access to creative features such as 8 hot cue points. Loops can also be set and triggered with the eight multi-functional drum pads. Access to sample decks is very easy with the RP-8000. In user mode, the pads are freely assignable, as well as all of the other MIDI compatible control elements. The Dual Performance mode is especially clever: when two modes, such as cue and loop, are pressed simultaneously, the first four trigger buttons are assigned to cue and the other four buttons are assigned to loop mode. The Turntable Link Mode is also quite smart: up to four turntables can be linked via USB. The single devices assign themselves automatically and consecutively to the next deck. This way, only one turntable has to be connected via USB to your PC/Mac. Sturdy and virtually indestructible, the turntable's technical features are just as powerful with a quartz-driven direct drive with precise even speed and digital correction. The high-resolution pitch, shown on the LCD, facilitates exact beat matching with long mixes. Sophisticated and fast turntablism showcases can also be created without a problem, thanks to the additional start/stop button for vertical positioning and a variable torque. Add variety to the mix with the reverse button and an adjustable start/stop time. The turntable is even equipped with a line/phono switch, so it can even be connected directly to line inputs of mixers or amps without grounding.

Construction: These are built in Germany and are built just like the 1200s with some improvements. The platter is the same, but underneath its sealed tight. So no dust will get into them. The tone arms are the same with all the same settings. The strobe lamp is brighter and helps in dark settings and the cartridge light is plugged in via RCA and so its easy to switch out. But it's an LED and so it will last a long time anyway.
Layout: The layout has the same feel as the 1200s, even the square shape and square shaped stop/stop buttons. It has the same 33/45/78 buttons and the same quartz lock button. But these add another start/stop button on the back-right just like the Stanton 150s which is nice in battle mode for the right deck.
Power: This is where the decks start to shine. The torque is amazing. It helps with quick cuts and scratching. They have the ability to start and stop on a dime! There is no detectable drag in the start at all. But you can also customize the settings with adjustable torque and brake dials. So if you want a tech 12 start, you can dial back the torque ("not I" said the fly). Playing with the break is sweet you can break from 0 to 6 "seconds".
More added value: The entire deck is midi programmable. So in theory you can program any button, fader, or dial. But the real beauty is that you can throw away your dicers! These bad boyz have 8 very responsive drum pads. You can press the cue button and the 8 pads trigger cue points. You can press the sample button and the pads trigger your samples. You can press the loop button and you can trigger loops! You can also do slices (which I have not played with yet). You can hit two buttons like the cue and sample at the same time and 1/2 of the 8 will be for your cue points and other 1/2 will trigger samples!. Da Bomb!
Firmware: These decks are primarily controlled and configured by software. So there are firmware updates that you need to apply when you first get them, but this also means that they can be improved by future firmware updates.
The only potential downside that I can see is that we don't have evidence of longevity. But since they are built so much like the tech 12's I am thinking they will last just as long.
I have purchased the Ortofon Concorde Pro S to go with it. It is not a top cartridge but so far it sounds very nice. I am still learning and trying to best align the cartridge for optimum performance.
I am not an audiophile. My collection of records is rare Salsa and Latin Jazz from the 60s and 70s, which most were never digitized. So yes, having a better cartridge ( or "better" turntable ) will mot likely make my music sound better, but it will also wear my records faster which I don't want to happened. I am also planing to use the turntable to play my rare collection of music in my Salsa events ( so far I have been using digital music ) once I get enough practice with it ( and when I save up enough for another turntable ).
So, after 4 months of reading and learning about turntables, going back and forth between a new or used table, between the Technics 1200, Stanton or an audiophile table like VPI Traveler or Any of the Rega, I have decided to go with the Reloop RP-8000. And so far I am very happy with my purchase, as I find the Reloop RP-8000 to perfectly fit my needs.
The performance of these are as good if not better than 1200's and I don't care what anyone says. I have both and have compared them. The torque is as strong as my Stanton STR8-150's. these are slightly lighter in weight then a 1200 also. I love the design, the pitch feature, and the fact that I can control multiple decks in Traktor with just one turntable with the deck selected feature. I would advise to replace the power cord with right angles power cord so you'll eliminate the gap between the deck and the mixer. I choose this over the new Pioneer PLX 1000 any day. You have more within this turntable then any other deck. You will not be disappointed.
