Reloop RP-6000 MK6 b turntable

This is probably the closest that you can get to the performanceof the old Technics SL1200 MKII turntables, which are not being manufactured by Panasonic/Technics anymore. I do not know why but I suppose that they have their reasons but you can bet that DJs all over the world are lamenting the fact that we do not have what we consider the icons of the DJ industry being made any more. A pity really. There are a few other brands out there in the market…some look like the Technics, some try to have the same performance like the Technics. However, one of them, in my opinion, is capable of the same performance that the Technics had. And that honour goes to the Reloop RP-6000 MK6 b

According to their website:

Reloop’s RP-6000 MK6 b professional turntable comes in an all black makeover. The rubberized surface and operating elements harmonise with the white super bright LEDs that never leave you in the dark. Furthermore Reloop’s flagship is compatible to any kind of mixer and amplifier due to the signal output as line or phono – no grounding necessary. Its highly dependable direct drive furthermore features a variable torque (2.5 or 4.5 kg/cm) which will satisfy club DJs and turntablists alike. The Reloop MK6 b: A statement.

I have actually had a look at these turntables and they are quite solidly made and the finish is awesome. They may not have the minimal looks of the SL-1200 MKII but they do make up in a few other features and the famous torgue that was so famous on the Technics turntable is there. If you ever get one of these turntables, look at the motor assembly. Yep. The Reloop turntable, with the platter being part of the motor, just like the Technics,is what gives it the great performance, torgue-wise. And the features? Here we go:

  • Quarz-driven DJ turntable with upper torque direct drive
  • Adjustable starting torque (2.5 kg/cm – 4.5 kg/cm)
  • Noble rubber paint finish
  • Phono and line output (no grounding necessary)
  • Direct interconnection of turntable and motor for maximum stability
  • Adjustable start/stop speed (0.2 – 6 sec.)
  • Metal chassis
  • Extra heavy design
  • Height adjustable S-shaped pickup arm with anti-skating
  • Pitch range ±10%, ±20%, ±50%
  • Easy-to-exchange, freely revolving stylus illumination with super bright LED
  • Quartz lock
  • Safety mains switch
  • Forward and reverse mode
  • Additional start/stop button for vertical installation
  • Rubber ply to reduce vibration and ambient noises
  • Detachable mains and RCA cable
  • Immersed connection cavity for easy case installation
  • Shock-absorbing feet

So as you can see, you get quality. I still have my Technics. If they ever croak, I did have the Numark TTXs in mind. But after trying out this reloop, looks like my mind has been changed, and yes, made up too. Reloops will be the choice.
