German DJ manufacturer Reloop announced its first portable turntable on Tuesday, the SPIN. It introduces a host of new features for DJs on the move, including Bluetooth, for streaming beats to the device, and smart USB recording, which enables recording of scratches in MP3 format.

The SPIN’s dual-rail 45mm crossfader can be installed on either side of the platter, enabling DJs to choose their preferred layout.

The device is also flexible when it comes to power. It can be used with a regular 5V USB power supply, USB power bank, or batteries.

Other notable features:

– Integrated speaker
– Three selectable speeds (33 1/3, 45, and 78 RPM)
– Stable tonearm with a transport lock
– Cartridge with tracking features
– Two headphones connections for listening and monitoring
– AUX input to facilitate connection of several turntables (daisy chain)
– Easy battery charging via USB PSU or USB power bank
– Installed start/stop button
– Precise speed adjustment via pitch control with +/-20 %

The SPIN will be available at the end of June at a street price of $249. It will include an exclusive 7-inch scratch record, as well as a free copy of the Beat Junkies’ Super Duper Duck Looper app.

Reloop Announces RP-8000 MK2 Turntable

Reloop RP-8000 MK2

Reloop has announced its latest turntable, the RP-8000 MK2, which it bills as “the most advanced turntable of all time.”

Like its predecessor, the RP-8000 MK2 is an official Serato device, enabling control of the software directly from the turntable.

It features seven new RGB color-coded performance pad modes. It also has a heavier design for vibration damping and isolation, more powerful starting torque, and the new MK2 tonearm base, as previously seen on the RP-7000 MK2.

The most exciting feature of the RP-8000 MK2, however, is the addition of Platter Play, which enables the performance pads to control the platter speed.

Platter Play enables DJs to select from 22 musical scales, with the option to create nine custom ones, for advanced turntablism performances. And because the pitch changes are done with the platter, the same controls will work with both Serato DJ and regular vinyl.

Other notable features:

– Reworked control section: more streamlined multi-encoder and intuitive mode section
– Independent pad modes
– Reverse function: switch for forward and reverse operation
– Smart USB link for up to four turntables

The RP-8000 MK2 will be available at the end of January priced at around $699. Get more details at Reloop’s website.
