During the COVID-19 pandemic, we do not recommend you chose the Economy shipping option. The economy post service provider is flooded with packages and delivery outside of the EU usually takes 7-12 weeks.
DHL Express usually delivers next day in Europe and 3-7 days outside the EU. Therefore, we recommend you to choose DHL Express to receive your order in a timely manner.
UPDATE: We do not offer the economy shipping method anymore for orders made from Jan 1st for shipments outside of the EU.

What Portablism mods are actually available?
The predominantly first mod to install is the Start/Stop button mod. A PCB, all required cables and an arcade or aluminum button in the color of your choice are included in the scope of delivery. Depending on the kit or article selection, the installation takes place without soldering. This is a Plug & Play solution. A video installation Guide is provided on YouTube. Follow the instructions carefully to install this and other mods successfully.
The JDDPTA tone arm by Jesse Dean is also gaining in popularity thanks to its carbon look and straight design. The unique feature of the QRM PT01, the tonearm from Bihari Designs, is that Headshells and Ortofon systems can be mounted directly. With this Tonarms your needle stays better on track and the sound improves too. The use of timecode vinyl of the well-known providers Serato and Traktor are also possible without problems.
The included switch of the Numark PT01 Scratch is unfortunately not known for great scratches and usability. Here, the mini Innofader pro is transforming your portable turntable into a scratch machine. This crossfader is also built into the Raiden RXI Fader Family and is one of the market leaders in the portable Crossfader area. An alternative is the Kutter fader of the company Stokyo Japan or the internal fader JDDX2RS-A by Jesse Dean Designs. These are also in high quantities in the use of various Portablists.
Since the platter in the PT01 models is not necessarily designed for scratching, you should also order the stabilizer ring, which prevents the "wobbling". The installation is done in seconds. You can also choose the Plate X Oone, REV01 or UFO X ONE from SolidCutz / PortablimGear. This is the more charming aluminium solution and guarantees stability.
