DJ equipment should also be suitable for DJ use

01.04.2017
Hello dear prospective customers,

have 2 of these CD players now for 1.5 years and can not only positive to say.

My statements should be taken with a bit of skepticism, because I do not know if the problems that affect my NDX500 so applicable to all units have at least found no articles or contributions to the same problem. My NDX500 are under repair. If the repair changes anything, I'll add it here accordingly.

Let's get to the positive things

-USB sticks are recognized and MP3 files can be played on it.

-The buttons all feel good and have a direct, noticeable pressure point

- plays CDs, USB sticks and can also send MIDI signals via USB to a DJ software (native Serato Suppport)

-The player looks very robust

Negative:

-The display shows me too little information. Does not fit titles completely on the ad. I started to name the files by the track name only. You can toggle between some MP3 tags, which is faster than waiting for the full name to be scrolled from right to left.

-USB Playback problems:
The stick must be formatted to FAT32, FAT16 or FAT. Only MP3 files with fixed bit rates are recognized correctly (title time). I exchanged extensively with the employees at Numark Support. Have tried various USB sticks, tried MP3 presets and settings. Again and again I had the error that the playback jumps to a point of a title. It is only a few seconds sometimes only one bar. But that's enough to mess up a complete transition. Using the built-in functions such as search or scratch mode seems to make it more powerful. The problem also occurs when packing MP3 files onto a CD. I assume that it is a software problem (firmware).

-The pitch fader is not linear. This means that the first 2 cm change less pitch than the last 2 cm. This is extremely bad when trying to pitch without the display and only by ear. Intuitive is different, I think I can never really get used to this inconsistency.

Operation in the dark is difficult if you do not know where all the buttons are. Most buttons are only illuminated when the functions are activated, some buttons have no illumination at all.

-The glossy surface not only makes every fingerprint visible, but also every speck of dust visible. You know before buying what you actually buy, but this "design" decision I can not understand.

Conclusion:
What did I expect?
I was expecting to get a fully functional DJ tabletop CD player, which plays USB sticks with MP3 files without errors. Equipment, which does not come along with a lot of gadgets, but is nevertheless functional and reliable. Because I have read so much positive about the NDX400, I assumed that I have found exactly the right thing for me here.

DJ equipment that you can not rely on is in my opinion unsuitable for DJ use. I mainly create mixes of various electronic music genres. I'm curious if something is being fixed in the repair, but I'm not optimistic about it. Of course, I could have spent a lot more money and had something that did not cause any trouble. However, I am of the opinion that the main features should nevertheless be better matured at 250 €.

I do not want to rule out the possibility that both of my NDX500 have a bug that may be fixed. Finally, both come from the batch June 2015. On the net, I find no other entries to the same problems. Consider the purchase well!

If you would like to see conversations between me and Numark support:
Google: "numark ndx500 skips some seconds of the track" and immediately select the first entry.
