Second only to a sharp, ultra-precise crossfader, ease of portability is vital for a portablism-focused turntable. High-quality rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries are included with the STX, providing enough portable power for hours of mobile use. The batteries can easily be charged by connecting the unit to a computer or wall charger using the USB C input. For extended scratch sessions, the USB C input can also be used with external power sources for even more cutting time. To top everything off (literally), the latching lid also functions as a stackable, latching base, bring the STX to standard turntable height.

Performing with beats and loopers is as simple as connecting a smartphone wirelessly with Bluetooth or with the 1/8” stereo input. The USB port with one-touch recording makes it fast and easy to record high-quality session audio for social media content creation, while the stereo RCA outputs allow you to connect external mixers and speakers for live performances.

The modification culture is alive and well in the portablism world. Since the inception of this art form, we’ve seen ingenious designs and customizations. The most popular and utilitarian mods are already included on the STX, including a Start/Stop button, an on-board speaker, and a pitch slider with Ultra-Pitch selection switch. These key features allow for inspiring performances right out of the box and provide a solid foundation upon which DJs can further customise to match their own unique portablist style.
