SETUP & INSTALLATION
This turntable has been designed exclusively for DJ use and can be setup in a variety of different ways
depending on your mixing style. The turntable should rest on a level and stable surface that is clear of
obstructions. If a mixer is placed between two turntables make sure that there is at least ¼" (7mm)
between the mixer and the turntables to prevent damage to the turntables and to reduce unwanted
system noise.

PLATTER SETUP
WARNING: Incorrect Platter setup can lead to poor turntable performance, platter instability, or
permanent motor damage.
1. Start by inspecting the bottom of the aluminum platter to check that both locking pins have rubber
fittings on them.
2. Next, rotate the top of the motor assembly (brass in color) so that two holes are aligned parallel with
the front of the turntable.
3. Install the platter onto the center spindle and motor assembly making sure that the Numark logo and
the two holes are aligned parallel with the front of the turntable.
4. The two locking pins should drop into the top of the motor assembly for a stable and secure fit. If they
do not, grasp the center spindle with one hand while rotating the platter with the other until the
locking pins drop into place. If the platter is properly installed, it should not wobble and should rotate
smoothly without any noise.

PLATTER SETUP
CARTRIDGE SETUP
For Head Shell Mounted Cartridges:
The cartridge that comes with this turntable should be preinstalled on the head shell. If it isn't, please
follow the below instructions for installing a cartridge onto the head shell.
1. Position the head shell and the cartridge so that the four connector pins are visible. Make sure that the
stylus cover is installed to prevent damage to the stylus during installation.
2. Prepare to connect the cartridge to the head shell using the green, red, blue and white connector wires.
3. Starting with the upper left pin and going clockwise install the white, the red, the green and finally the
blue wires to the connector pins. Be careful not to bend the metal clips on the end of the wires. These
metal connectors should never make contact with one another.
4. Using the screws and bolts that are included with the cartridge, loosely fasten the cartridge to the head
shell body.
5. Once temporarily fastened, position the cartridge so that both screws are aligned with the optimum
position mark on the Head shell (Numark HS 1 Head shell and Numark Cartridges only.) Moving the
both screws to a mark away from the optimum position indicated on the head shell may increase or
decrease performance depending on the cartridge used. For safe vinyl record treatment, the screws
should always be aligned perpendicular to the head shell (any angle may increase "record burn.")
6. Once the cartridge is positioned correctly, secure the cartridge to the head shell by tightening the
mounting screws.
For Integrated Head Shell Cartridges (Numark CS-1, CC-1, CX-1, etc.)
7. Align the pin on the rear of the Cartridge Assembly so that it is in a vertical position and insert it into
the tone arm lock nut.
8. Secure the cartridge to the tone arm by turning the tone arm lock nut clockwise until the head shell
feels secure and does not wobble to the left or right. WARNING: Over tightening the tone arm lock nut
may result in permanent damage to the tone arm or the cartridge.
9. Remove the stylus protector before playback.

INTERCHANGING TONEARM TUBES (sold seperately)
WARNING: An incomplete understanding of this procedure could lead to permanent damage to the
headshell, your records, or the tonearm assembly.
NOTICE: Interchanging tonearm tubes unnecessarily may shorten the life of the tonearm tubes and/or
tonearm components.
This turntable features the world's only tonearm assembly capable of accommodating two different
tonearm tube styles: S-Shaped and Straight. The S-Shaped tube produces a higher signal to noise ratio
with most cartridge assemblies. The Straight tube is ideal for heavy back-cueing or scratching. Decide
which tube to use based on your mixing style.
1. Power off the turntable and any connected mixers, amplifiers or monitoring devices.
2. Remove the Cartridge from the tonearm tube that is currently installed on the tonearm tube by rotating
the locking collar counter clockwise.
3. Unclip the tonearm tube from the armrest.
4. Remove the tonearm tube by rotating the locking collar counter clockwise.
5. Insert the desired tonearm into the tonearm assembly with the screws FACING TOWARDS THE
TURNTABLE BODY.
6. Tighten the tonearm tube in place by rotating the inner collar clockwise.
WARNING: It is only necessary to tighten the tonearm tube lock collar until resistance is felt. Over
tightening the tonearm tube lock collar will damage the tonearm tube.
7. Reinstall the headshell and proceed to TONEARM SETUP.

INTERCHANGING TONEARM TUBES
TONE ARM SETUP
A properly adjusted tone arm and cartridge setup will minimize vinyl record wear and optimize the
performance of the turntable. Follow these simple steps for setting the tone arm on the turntable:
NOTE: In most cases, when using the S-Shaped tonearm tube, the additional S-Weight must be fastened
to the tonearm to achieve proper stylus pressure.Balancing the Tone Arm
1. Begin the balancing process by lifting the cue lever to the up position (or make sure that the stylus
protector is on the cartridge.)
2. Next, rotate the counterweight clockwise until it is in the complete forward position (NOTE: this is also
the maximum amount of pressure that can be applied to the cartridge.)
3. Now there should be a feeling of weight and resistance when the head shell is raised and lowered.
Begin rotating the counterweight counter-clockwise (away from the pivot point) until this weight and
resistance feeling is gone. If done properly, the tone arm will pivot with very little resistance back and
forth indicating that there is exactly 0 grams of stylus pressure.
4. With the counterweight in its new position further away from tone arm pivot point, grasp the scale ring
of the counter weight and rotate it until "0" is in the vertical position.
5. Finally, rotate the counterweight (and scale ring) clockwise (towards the pivot point) until the desired
amount of weight is reached. If the scale rotates 360 degrees beyond the zero point, the new scale
ring reading should be added to 3.5.
*The included head shell and cartridge assembly requires a minimum of 3 grams and no more than 5
grams for optimum performance.
Setting the Anti-Skate Adjustment
In most cases, the Anti-Skate should be set to its minimum setting. Anti-Skate compensates for inward
tracking forces that occur with certain cartridges when the stylus nears the center of the record. If the
turntable is experiencing excessive skipping during back-cueing and scratching while nearing the center
spindle, try increasing the Anti-Skate in the increments indicated on the dial. Start by adding an
increment of 1, test its performance, than increase it more, and so on.

CABLE SETUP
This turntable is shipped with two sets of special cables:
(1) Right Angle IEC Power Cord
(1) Right Angle RCA cord w/ground wire
NOTE: Before connecting any cables, make sure that the voltage selector switch is set to the proper
setting!
Making the power and audio connections:
1. Begin by lifting the turntable up from the rear handle and resting it on its side. (NOTE: The turntable
must be supported because it is not stable in this position!)
2. First, using the side of the RCA cable with the Right Angle plugs, slightly loosen the ground screw and
slide the ground clip underneath it. Tighten the ground screw against the ground clip so that the cable
exits towards the IEC Power Terminal.
3. Next connect the Red Right Angle RCA Plug to the Red RCA jack with the "R" indication.
4. Then connect the White Right Angle RCA Plug to the White RCA jack with the "L" indication.
5. Finally connect the IEC power cord to the IEC Power terminal. It should only fit in the Terminal one
way.
6. Rest the turntable back down on a level surface and route the cables to nearby power and audio
accessories.
NOTE: When connecting this turntable to a DJ mixer, the ground wire must always be connected to
prevent unwanted noise. It is also important that the RCA outputs of the turntable are connected to a
mixer (or other preamp device) marked as PHONO or TURNTABLE. This turntable will not work properly if
connected to a LINE LEVEL input or CD input.

OPERATION
This turntable was designed to accommodate a variety of different mixing styles. Here are some general
operation guidelines to optimize the performance of the turntable.
1. Do not place the turntable on or near a speaker or subwoofer. This may cause unwanted noise
depending on the environment conditions.
2. ALWAYS use the included Slip Mat during record playback. This Slip Mat was designed to reduce friction
between the platter and the record to allow for rapid back cueing and efficient scratch play.
3. Using the tone arm Cue System may prevent damage to your stylus. First lift the Cue Lever, then
position the tone arm over the desired groove of the record, and finally lower the Cue Lever to slowly
drop the tone arm onto the record.
4. Always secure the tone arm using the Arm Clip when not in use. This can prevent stylus damage and
accidental tone arm engagement.
5. To reduce needle skipping, follow the guidelines in the Tone Arm Setup section of this manual. Too
much weight on a cartridge may cause erratic skipping or stylus damage.
Another guideline that may reduce skipping is back cueing and adjusting playback tempo by applying
pressure towards the center of the record near the spindle as indicated below.
Skipping induce by rapid cueing or scratching may be reduce by applying inward pressure to the side of
the record instead of applying pressure down on the record (see diagram below.)
