Not I.  I've made a science out of preventing scratches on my collection so I Ain't about to purposely scratch them.

lol... no... what this is, is a system to playback mp3s thru a turntable/pc connection.

the records used have npo music, only an analog signal (said to sound something like the sound of an analog modem) that is interpreted through the pc and afects the playback of the mp3 or wav or whatever in the same way it would be afffected as if the song was actually on the vinyl.

i personally wish i could buy one.. then i could have a huge selection of music to dj, and no crate to carry.

Also see my post somewhat further up
The theory behind this thing is awesome! Cuz you can actually spin stuff that doesn't get released on Vinyl, is hard to get etc or you produced yourself, don't put wear on the records. Some problems: afaik the timecode on the dummy records only ranges up to twelve minutes. Granted, a lot of music stays under that margin, but many songs come close, especially if you look into the progressive trance sector. ...and then there is the Steve Helstrip extended mix of "Thrillseekers - Synaesthesia" which boasts ca 19:50mins! :eek: But what I would be very concerned about is the timecode Vinyls wearing off. Sure, you can get replacements which aren't that expensive... But how do the effects show? If your music only starts jumping here and there, that might not seem so bad at first, but if you are spinning to a crowd you will look like a fool. Another drawback is, that you don't "see" the breaks in the music anymore or how long the song still has to play.
