    Ive been mxing for about a year and a half now and feel very comfortable with my technique and ability. I recently pulled one my extremely old gemini xl-300 turntables to sit alongside my 1210's to give me the oppertunity to dabble in some triple drop action. I found it extremely difficult to switch between the amazing torque and precision on the technics and the amazing shiteness of my £150 second hand first decks. However with practice i put together a few really good 3 deck mixes and triple drops. Below is a link to a mix i made using my shoddy set up please listen and leave feedback.

    I'm thinking of buying a cd/vinyl hybrid turntable as a thrid deck so i can mix both vinyl and cd on a third channel. Any thoughts on good products or better options?
