Audio-Technica Consumer AT-XP3 Reviews

Not quite as good as the M44Gs but almost

My previous DJ cart was an M44G which I felt tracked better at lower tracking forces and sounded a bit more musical. This is a worthy replacement given the 44G's are no longer being made. I try to keep mine on the lighter side, around 2.5 grams just to try and keep my vinyl in good shape. I've had it skip once on a very loud part of a 12 maxi (it was BT's Godspeed where the flange bass hits) and a few times where it jumped at the very beginning of the groove when cueing up. I'm sure that'd be solved with a heavier tracking force. In any case, they sound decent, are inexpensive, and seemed to be the best option for mixing whilst avoiding cue burn. I haven't used them for a very long period of time and I'm mostly a bedroom DJ but I have enjoyed them. I picked these over the Concordes partly due to price and also the 'cordes high tracking force recommendations. It just left me a little uneasy. That plus 'cordes are the go-to DJ carts and I thought I'd try out AT's line just to see what it was about.

Can't go wrong
