The headshells are $40 each, so they are not cheap... BUT you will probably never find a headshell as stylish as these ever again. Check out the link below for more information.

Reloop RP-8000 Professional MIDI Turntable Unboxing & First Impressions [Video]

The recently released Reloop RP-8000 Professional MIDI DJ turntables sport some of the familiar Super-OEM turntable DNA including the same high-torque motor and tonearm that is found on the Stanton ST-150, Reloop RP-6000, AT-LP1240, etc. The RP-8000 also has an additional digital Pitch LED display, eight rubberized MIDI pads, four MIDI layer buttons, and an over-sized encoder knob which can all be mapped to any MIDI compatible DJ software out on the market today. The main difference with these new Reloop turntables is that they have a familiar "Technics" turntable look and layout with a brushed aluminum top plate, recessed aluminum pitch sliders, and the familiar aluminum start-stop buttons found on the corners. The Pitch range of these turntables can be switched from +/- 8%, +/- 16% and +/- 50% and there are also start and stop adjustment knobs to control the speed that the platter starts and stops the track.

NI Traktor Control Vinyl (White) Feature Video

The Native Instruments Traktor Scratch Pro Digital Vinyl DJ System is one of the best, if not the best, DVS solutions on the market today. I've been reviewing a lot of these DVS setups as of late, but one thing we often forget to mention is that if you are using the DVS with actual vinyl turntables, then you will eventually need to purchase new stylus and digital control vinyl as these will wear out with continuous use. Traktor offers their Digital control vinyl in many different colors to fit every DJ's needs. Check out my quick feature video of my new white Traktor Control Vinyl inside.
