The latest Phase update is nothing but good news as they announce the production phase (all pun intended) is complete! That means the first wave of pre-orders will begin to ship on March 25th. Apparently there are still some official Phase vendors that have preorders available, however the official Phase site and many other sellers are sold out.
Phase has had its share of hurdles with their flagship product, having to push back the shipping date 3 times from its original expected launch date in September of 2018. They had taken a lot of criticism and some DJs even reported canceling their preorders. Even with all of that pressure the Phase pipes remained intact and the DJ community seems to be thrilled that they will finally be able to test out the next advancement in DJ innovation.
Phase is set to replace the need for DJ needles while providing an authentic turntable feel. Turntable parts such as tone arms are not always easy to come by (we looked for a specific tone arm weight for over 6 months before finding someone to sell us one) and needles can become pricey if you break enough, which will eventually happen. Phase ($350USD) may be a long term solution to your turntable woes without having to drop $1600USD for a pair of Rane Twelves. The Magnificent Jazzy Jeff has demos and speaks about Phase below.
