Before we saw the introduction of digital media. DJ's were almost exclusively using turntables for their live sets.
With Vinyl Records not only making a comeback but even dominating your favourite genres of music. Your favourite artists are releasing music on vinyl, bringing the art of DJing back to life. Meaning you'll see more and more DJ's whipping out the turntable again at your next gig.
A Vinyl Record, or an LP, is an analog sound storage medium that was first introduced in Columbia in 1948. Record players are the perfect way to play and enjoy your vinyl records. The name coming from the fact the main platter always needs to turn in order for you to hear your audio. To do this your turntable will use either belt drive or direct drive technology.
Belt drive means your turntable is driven by an elastic belt attached to your motor. Generally more common if you're looking for casual listening.
Direct Drive means your turntable is directly driven by your motor. Highly recommended if you're a DJ, for the high durability and platter speed-accuracy it offers you.
