    So i'm looking to start mixing/djing, Looked over a few sites and found a few alright deals but not sure if worth the money.

    Also not sure about what make to buy, Gemini seems to look alright but being cheap dont know about the time it'll last, so if somebody could reccommend a make and model of turntable and mixer and a rough price estimate i'd appreciate it. :)

    Well if you're getting CDJ's get a pioneer model as they are the standard CDJ in clubs.
    Its preferable if you just get 2 Technic 1210 MK2's and a mixer

    Always start on turntables, you need to master the logic of beat matching to be a good dj - When you are a fluent Dj on various peoples decks of all makes and models get some CDJs, thats what i did ;)

    And dont faff about with new decks - Technic 1210/1200 all the way, they are dirt cheap and the standard.

    Plus use the search in future - hundreds of threads on this dude!
