Categories: DJ Media Players, Numark

The Numark NDX-500 is a compact but solidly build media player that accepts CDs, USB sticks and can function as a Serato DJ controller. This means that for under USD 250 you get many of the features on more expensive players (the XDJ-1000 from Pioneer DJ sells for approx USD 1000) without cleaning your savings account.
