    Ez all,

    I'm looking at getting a CD deck so I can give three deck mixing a go

    What should I be looking at getting, what features do I need?

    You should really aim to get at least a CDJ400 imo cos every club will have Pioneer CDJs these days, but if you want for home use then people recommend Numark Axis 9. I hate the cueing on those Numarks as it makes the gashest noise like a skipping cd tryin to get the points so thats why the Pioneers vinyl/ scratch function comes in hand, works exactly the same as vinyl.

    HTH

    Only ever used an 800 and a 1000.. Was looking to do the exact same as you a year or so ago and bagged myself the 800 and havn't looked back! Except i would love another 1210 to go along as there are alot of 3 deck mixes i would love to do with 3 vinyl but can't!

    wait a few more weeks man, the new numark ndx800 looks really promising so far for a really good price. really cant stand the cd drive on my axis any more. need a slot in one.

    If only.. I could meet the payments but I don't think they'd consider it a regular income.. cash in hand you see

    Not out in the world of work just yet.. last year of college

    Good idea though.. Will be utilising it as soon as I can! :D
