    I have the same problem. I use my CDX a lot for scratching during live shows en after a certain time the sound just gets F-ed up. Indeed, like an old worn down record, with pops and hisses and everything. When I change the CD it's back to normal again, but only for a short time. And only if the drive reads the CD.
    My guess it's because of the heat it builds up, but it could be anything, from the b-grade cd drive in the CDX to the type of CD-r's I'm using.

    Just to top it off, here are my list of defects/faults I run into while using the CDX:
    - really bad sound after a while
    - CD drive won't read some CD's, wether official or burnt CD's
    - Sometimes ejects CD's after insertion, for no apparent reason and it isn't consistent: it might accept a CD it rejected 4 times earlier.
    - it takes a long time just to read a CD, which shouldn't be the case with a machine like this. It should be like changing a record on your turntable: a matter of seconds.
    - The BPM button-mechanism is way too loose so the button gets stuck a lot when pressing it for BPM measuring

    Besides the last problem (which isn't really a problem, just a minor inconvenience) I must conclude it all comes down to the CD drive.
    Which is a shame really, cuz Numark still have the only machine like this out there and I'd hate to have to denounce the whole brand for choosing the cheap way out with the cd drive.

    i have the same problem, i'm a dj in Ibiza (spain). as the unit heats up it becomes more of a problem, i often use the cdx with timecode cd's for numark virtual vynal and it causes serious problems with the software when it does start to go. what i have noticed, if you turn off the unit, turn it back on, and mess about with the pitch slider and effects, it tends to last longer before it goes bad again.

    I feel this is a bunch of BS. I spent my hard earned money on these turntable and this is what I get I am not happy. It seems to me that numark knew that this would be an issue.

HERE YA GO!! GOOD OLD FASHIONED BEATING FIXED MINE... I PROMISE THIS. When you turn on your CDX... HIT THE SQUARE AREA where the play button and the cue buttons are located.

I'm sorry to tell you this, but my advice would be to buy a pair of Pioneer CDJ-800s or CDJ-1000s

I can't see the 800s costing you much more that what paid for the Numarks, and there's a reason why the Pioneers are used extensively in nightclubs, and the Numarks aren't.
