NAMM 2015: Reloop RP-8000 Straight Turntable

As we reported in an earlier NAMM 2015 story, the Reloop team has decided to release their flagship RP-8000 turntables in a straight tonearm edition to appease many scratch DJ's who are more comfortable with the straight arm skip resistance. The new RP-8000 Straight turntables will have all the same features and functions of the original RP-8000 Hybrid Turntables we reviewed last year with a new tonearm option for those who want it.
