nice to see so many people into djing =)

You should have alot of fun with your tables, be sure of that!

I dont really dj much anymore since i began producing. I should really sell my technics 1200mkii's before they collect anymore dust

I had american Dj turntables for a while and they were great for begining tables. If your really going to start djing I suggest you go with some 1200s and nothing less. Even though they are more expensive you really get what you pay for.

definately!
i had newmarks, vestax, and gemini turntables before my technics and the others just couldn't compete with them.
My newmarks were belt drive, which meant almost instant pickup, but slow stopping speeds, and vibrations when trying to mix or scratch causing skips.
also they wouldn't run at the exact pitch for very long.

The gemini's and vestax ones were direct drive (everybody told me to go direct drive at the time). They had a slow pickup, almost instant stop, but when trying to scratch, mix, or rewind, you fought with the motor quite a bit which wasn't good for the turntable or what i needed to do.

The technics dont use a direct drive motor or belt drive, they use magnetic drive with no moving parts. The start and stop is instantaneous, and if you rewind it spins soooo easily with no resistance. Not to mention the pitch controls can be fine tuned and so can pretty much everything else on them. I feel my skills improved 200% when i got my technics just because everything worked the way i wanted it to.
I highly recommend them if you get into djing as well.

i was thinking of getting a cd mixer but i decided to go ol-school and use turn tables.. how are they? i like the idea of being able to find some nice good techno songs on the net, burn em and the remix em right away
