    im looking to get a cd deck, got a budget of around 200 - 250, could maybe stretch to 300 if it would make a big difference. any advice on what to get?? I will mainly just be using it as a 3rd deck as I've got my beloved technics installed already. axis 9 seems to be the most popular from reading around...

    Unless you get lucky on the Bay you won't get a CDJ800 second hand for less then £300 so Axis 9 is the way to go my friend :) Ask around for an 800 tho, worth it imo because it'll last longer then the Axis 9 and Numarks repair times are fucking joke!

    axis series is good for the money, and an introduction into cd decks. the 9 is a great little number with many of the feature and function you'd find on a higher priced cd deck. definatly worth a go.

    oh, and i got my pioneer cdj800 for £280. the deals are out there :)

    I've got the axis 9, and even though I don't use it that often (cause of my ongoing love with vinyl) it was definately worth the purchase and the price.

    Nice and simple to use too, my only fault on it is the jog wheel, which IMO is a little too loose and sensitive for precision mixing...
