Jackie first off, we do value your opinions. We don't have biased opinions but if you wish to talk about other company's products go check their message boards, , , as John has stated before, most of them don't have a message board, and any other company that does would do the sameon their forum.
The turntable you use, should be what you feel most comfortable working on, not what everyone else tells you to use, or what everyone else uses. I find after using the 2.2 for about 2 months now right next to a 1200, they stack up very nicely, and I don't have to worry about not having such features as ~ reverse platter, +/-20 pitch % and so on. But as I said, that's my prefrence, and not everyone thinks the same.
Please stop making us sound like we are mental patients, and belong in an insane asylum, as most if not all of us are dj's just like you. Nobody here has ever done anything to disrespect you but clearly you just want to disagree with everything we say. We have rules on this forum that are just the same as every other forum, if you cannot obey those rules, then this is not the forum for you. We have a lot of dj's from a lot of different backgrounds, experience levels and some of them don't have the budget to go out and by a pair of 1200's, or for that matter, every single unit that is considered the "best" or "industry standard". American Audio has come a long way in the past few years, and is making QUALITY gear at Affordable prices, try to find the next company that does that. By the way do you know what company is behind the Tech 1200? They are made by Panasonic. . . . .that's just a random thought.
