I’m testing the waters with the sc6000. My current decks are Pioneer NXS2. I enjoy the product so far but I can’t help but notice some hardware experiences I consider to concern me, specifically related to the platter and tension control.
Variable Tension Across Decks I have three decks and although the tension adjustment is the same setting on each deck I still get different feels of resistance. This feels like a mistake. Does anyone else have this experience?
Scraping Sound The sound of the platter spinning sounds different across each deck. Quite different. It’s a scraping sound. I don’t believe the platter is suppose to sound like it’s scraping right? I hope not. Does anyone else have this experience?
Subjective Feel of Platter Weight Coming from Pioneer the weight of these platters seem quite heavy to quickly manipulate with little effort. Even on the lightest setting, between the weight and the less tactile texture seem to take a second to gain momentum to move the platter. It feels nice in some ways but in others, perhaps too heavy. I’m guessing I can get use to this. Curious if anyone has any thoughts here.
Feature Request Dim the platter light. It’s soooooo bright. And I simply don’t need to bright colored rings shining in the dark. I would love to be able to easily set a preference to make the lights like 25-50% dim.
Anyhow, it would be helpful to hear more about this tension and scraping the experience. Is this expected? Is there something to be concerned about? Should I replace them? I have to feel confident in replacing my Pioneer gear and at the moment I’m not sure. Help me be sure lol
