You got that backwards.

Lol the whole point of belt drive is to reduce rumble by moving the motor away from the platter. Many/most ultra hifi decks are belt driven for this reason. Direct drive is all about providing reliable/consistent torque and reducing points of failure.

It is kind of stupid to DJ on a belt driven turntable.

Anyone have any input on this brand/ model? Am I better off just spending the extra on a U-Turn?

I've been looking at TN-400S. Is 300SE hugely different from it?

Get a direct drive if you can. Belt drive has too much rumble.

Yup. Motor noise = rumble. Although a belt can introduce it if it has an irregularity.

Excellent primer: https://parttimeaudiophile.com/20...table-101/

Personally, I would pay $120 more for a much better unit: Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB

400 has a AT100e cartride and 78 rpm capability. This has a AT95e cartride.

I used to DJ. Avoid belt driven turntables. The belt will break over time. It's nearly impossible to attach it back on when it falls off or breaks.
Belts are very easy to replace.

Come on. My 7 year old daughter can change a belt. And a new one costs a whole $7 or so.

Also this is a fake discount price. True price is more like $225-$250. Yes it is on sale, just don't believe the fake jacked up original price. Good turntable for someone new to the hobby.
