    Not having a click and having some blue lights is not worth the extra 200quid or whateever it is lol..

    And how often do you need to replace mk2's?... Exactly.

    I tend to have my pitch even higher, but sometimes you have to mix in a fast track like Back to you roots - Friction & Ktee remix, in which case it becomes a pain in the arse... Also if I ever want to use a mp3 of my Ipod/laptop to mix into then it also becomes a pain in the arse as I have no cd deck yet.

    mk3s are the same price as 2s, generally in better condition, no stupid pitch click (i dnt care what anyone says, its a fuckin pain) and they have a nicer matt finsh then the mk2s.

    for the same price i'd say mk3s any day! :not_worth
