word of advice from someone who made the mistake in the past...

whichever turntables you get make sure they are direct drive.

Personally I would only recommend the Technics SL1210-MK2s

Years ago I desperately wanted decks, I had one on which I listened to my vinyl at home but wanted a couple of DJ decks for practising at home... I couldn't afford 2 MK2s at the time, but saw an ad that said something like "better than" or "just as good as" and bought 2 inferior decks for the price of one and a half MK2s.. worst purchase ever. seriously rather only buy one and save for the other, you will not regret it :)

Direct drive means that the platter is driven by a motor.

The other alternative is belt drives, which, funnily enough, are driven by a belt - which can lead to many problems, the most frequent being unequal rotation of the platter leading to deviations in speed - meaning rubbish mixes!

Personally either get a pair of Technics with a decent mixer from [url]www.decks.co.uk[/url] - one of the cheapest places on the net.

Or, go all out and get a pair of Pioneer CDJ1000 MK3's and move into the digital era.

Or for a slightly cheaper alternative the Citronic MPCD S6's

Selling a pair of decks, PM me if interested :)

About 1 year old, they were used for 1 month or 2 before they got boxed back up due to lack of time :(

They are Gemini decks, direct drive, forgotten model number, can find it if you want :)
