If you've got the money - get second-hand 1210s. If you decide you don't want to play, you can flog them for almost the same (or more) than you bought them for. They keep their value.
New belt-drives or budget no-name direct-drives will lose 50% of their value the day you buy them.
I actually found someone from this website who is selling me 2x gemini xl500 mk 2 in a great condition for only £80 (shipping not included). Seems like a good deal
big up gemini for the beginner turntables! thats what i started on. definitely nice to get used to shitty turntables as thats what you will play on at some parties!there actually pretty good decks they are imitaions of technics and they have alot of torque for the price! i had a pair to start with.
