    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. It will jump to CDX on the screen and work fine. Mine did this and i messed around with bumping it and stuff and figured this out

Cdx doesnt read any cd.....

Numark has yet fix this issue. You will need a replacement CD drive, they swap right out. Their warehouse is located in Cumberland RI (US). Unless you could score one on ebay. I have about 3 of them, you interested?

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.

Not reading any cd's

they are known for this! Does it take cd in for a few seconds and spit out? Does it take cd in and just tick? (if you put ur ear up to the drive you'll actually hear it try to spin but just give a lil tick noise). Numark does sell a replacement cd drive which isnt exactly a 100% fix but worth a shot seeing how the unit cost quite a bit. If you do end up replacing the cd drive and does not fix your problem there is also an internal cable. Once you pull out the drive, look inside to the left you'll see a white flex cable which may need to be re-seated. Let me know how you make out!

Platter spins very slowly

Well hope fully its something small. check your pitch control first make sure its not set at a slow speed. then check your start stop knobs at the bottom of the table. roll them one way then start it see if that works, then the other way... if its not that then its possibly its a malfunction ,, Numark with there new awesome products but sometimes faulty that turntable wigs out goin slow then normal then slow ect... If its less then a year send it in it is coverd by warrantee
