No effects (Encore 1000)

By JimboSpins, 24/02/2013
The American Audio Encore 1000 is a DJ CD and MP3 player that is great for a mobile DJ; it can help you stay organized. It is a 2 channel audio mixer that is made well, all of the buttons and knobs are pretty well made and I don’t see any issues arising with the build of this unit. The Encore 1000 has a relay playback and balanced XLR outputs. There is also a auxiliary input on the front of it that was perfect for me to get my iPod audio into the Encore 1000.
Getting the Encore 1000 up and running was not hard at all. I did follow of the instructions that where in the manual and I was ready to use it in no time. This unit is not that heavy which means it is great for travel and transportation but at the same time it didn’t have that “solid” build to me. It just didn’t seem like it was made out of the best materials to make it last for a long time. The buttons and sliders where fine but the unit overall had more of a “plastic” type of feel too it.
The two platters feel nothing like some of the higher end similar models and nothing like a real vinyl platter in any way. Other users have said it does feel like a real vinyl player when used but I strongly disagree. There are other units out on the market that have a more “vinyl” feel too it but you will have to spend a little more money for one of those units.
I do not think that this unit is bad, I just don’t think the Encore 1000 was for me. It does have a lot of features like auto BPM and Pitch options but it didn’t have any effects on board and for this price it should have some effects like flanger or some filters.

Just disappointed...! (TTD-2400)

By teogin, 02/12/2013
I got very enthusiast when I found a solution to get a vinyl turntable with direct drive as my older unit had some problems with the belt. So, I decided to look for a direct drive unit. I found it from http://www.Thommann.de
I liked it most for the direct drive and the price. But... unfortunately what you get is what you pay (for once again).
I had also ordered the cover, as it isn't included. The problems started almost immediately. American Audio TTD-2400 consists of cheap plastic and when I tried to put the cover I realized that it was very difficult to do it.
First you have to put two springs (elaters) which are too tough and unsuitable for this quality of plastic. There were not instructions in the box of its cover, so after some searching I found instructions on the Internet with awful BW photos.
With the help of God (He was sorry about me and helped me) I managed to put it on. But the springs are so strong and plastic bottom of their room is so poor that after 10 days, the bottom of the spring on the right just broken (by itself) and it is the first turntable of my life that broke because of a production fault.
The board speed and the brake are awesome!
I cannot say the same for the quality of sound. A sound that is not clear at all, and I have no the mid and bass sequences I had with my past turntable.
I am very disappointing by this unit. Maybe it is good for a bar with a lot of people; the noise there is a good point in order to ignore the sound quality.
If you need a turntable with its cover avoid taking this unit (friendly advice). If you are not interested in cover or sound quality then it is good.
