NUMARK UNVEILS CDX CD PLAYER WITH 12” MOTORIZED PLATTER
– True turntable feel in a CD player –
Cumberland, RI, January 15, 2004 – Numark‟s CDX is a tabletop CD player with
an ultra-high torque motorized 12” platter that holds a vinyl record for the ultimate
in vinyl scratch feel. Styled after Numark‟s flagship TTX turntable, the CDX features
an industry maximum 5.0 kgf/cm torque direct drive motor, aluminum platter, dual
"battle-style" controls, and forward/reverse toggle. In addition, there is a superior
VFD display, slot-load CD transport, and extensive DSP functionality.
The CDX has several modes for scratching and looping, including auto beat matching
and smart looping, which uses the Beatkeeper™ to make perfect loops effortlessly.
There is also extensive cue store/recall with multiple sets for each CD. Beat-synched
digital FX are built in, including sonar, slide, filter, echo, and chop. Effects can be
manipulated with a separate control wheel interface. The CDX offers a pitch slider
programmable up to ±100% pitch control, as well as a high-quality, 100% Key Lock.
Numark CEO John E. "Jack" O‟Donnell commented: “To say that the CDX „emulates‟ a
turntable is not quite accurate: mechanically, the CDX is a turntable. With the
highest torque direct drive motor out there, a full size platter, and TTX turntable
styling and control, the CDX feels as close as it gets to working with a record while
using a CD. For the professional DJ who enjoys the convenience of CDs, while also
desiring the feel of working with vinyl records, there is no longer a need for
