Hey,

Been practicing in my cd players long enough, and I think I'm ready to move on to turntables. Anyone got any advice on some beginner turntables? Thanks

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.

definitly agree with dustek , it's always good to invest in some 1210's..

Second hand Technics are often a good idea simply because they do hold their value.
Although saying that I learned on Numark tt1650's and they were good to learn on. I also managed to flog them for a fairly high price on e bay afterwards::

i started on, and still use(im not rich enough for technics) Sony psdj 9000. sound like a crap set of decks, they aint the best, but i like them, ask anyone that has, or ever has had them, they are pretty good/theyre direct drive, quartz lock, nice torque and seem real sturdy. ive certainly put them through the wars. n coz they aint a well known deck u can pick a pair up for about £100 on ebay, or £400 cash converters ( so do ebay lol).
