I got the chance to grab a pair of numark ttx's for cheap.  But I fear they are first gen with the motor issues.  Anybody remember how to tell what generation they are?

The ones with the old chips are called "TTX1" and don't have variable torque, the newer ones are called "TTX" or "TTX USB" and have the variable torque

hello...which is the one that works and does not have problems with motor?

I've seen ones also that appear to be mid-gen. I bought one on ebay... couldn't tell if it was a 1 or not but was super cheap so took the risk. It says TTX1 on the body but if you take off the platter it has the vents. Essentially that's what you want is vents under the platter (see pic below). I did a lot of reading trying to figure it out. From what I've read even the TTX has the risk of being the old version under the hood. My guess is they had deadstock parts from the original run and used them. TTX USB is the best to get but if you can get a good enough deal and it has the vents it *should* be fine.

 Have you considered getting an RME?

2003 saw a silent but much needed update – the heat issues were addressed with a bigger heat sink and a new motor, which effectively got rid of the troublesome sensors. The next incarnation in 2005 sought to keep possible switchers happy. Mega torque isn’t for everyone and indeed I’m not even sure it’s that important despite manufacturers pushing greater torqued motors upon us. But Numark thought it would be cool to introduce an idea that has been kicked around for years – variable torque. The TTX now comes with 3 settings roughly matching the competition. And at this point, Numark updated things under the hood as well, by adding vents under the platter to cater for the extra heat generated by the new motor.
