Reloop RP-7000 silver turntable NAMM 2015 (2)

It’s hard to get past the iconic looks of Technics. While the black 1210 is popular, the silver 1200 is what most people think of when talking of Technics. And while Reloop did their level best to bring the Technics vibe to their RP-7000 and 8000 turntables, something was still missing. Now Reloop aims to bring that real retro feel to their oh so modern turntable with the RP-7000 Silver, a modern turntable with the classic 1200 stylings.

It’s a colour variant, but for completeness, here’s the words:

RELOOP RP-7000 SILVER

PROFESSIONAL UPPER TORQUE TURNTABLE

Muenster, 22.January 2015

The Reloop RP-7000 silver is the solution for all vinyl DJs and DVS users who are looking for a professional high-torque, club-standard turntable with extremely strong motor and a sturdy and indestructible construction. With its classic silver edition the RP-7000 silver is not only suited for your everyday club grind, it also looks extremely cool.

On the technical side, the RP-7000 silver has also got a lot to offer: The highly dependable direct drive and improved even speed with digital correction make this turntable reliable and a device of precision. Thanks to the three selectable pitch ranges (+/-8%, +/-16% and +/-50%) and the high-resolution digital fader, the pitch resolution is highly precise. With a divergence of only 0.02% beatmatching becomes easy as can be with the RP-7000 silver. Sophisticated and fast turntablism showcases can also be realized without a problem, thanks to the additional start/stop button for vertical positioning and a variable torque from “Classic” to “HiTorque”. More variety in the mix:

With the reverse button and an adjustable stop time from 0.2 to 6 seconds, individual and creative impulses can be set with the RP-7000 silver. As the turntable is equipped with a line/phono switch, it can even be connected directly to line inputs of mixers or amps – grounding not necessary.

Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
