    This is good to have but isn't essential, I never use MP3 CDs in mine even tho they are, too many tracks on a CD become complicated imo. I'm pretty sure all the big djs i've seen mix have change the CD all the time, maybe 4-6 tracks each.

    Scuba the badman has 1 track per cd!

    it still works out much cheaper, i usually do 2 or 3 tunes per cd, plus if you get those 100pks of blank cds then its only something like 25p a piece

    idk why anyone hasn't said Nuurbanmusic.com thats where the BEST shit is lol and usually for dj equipment your local music outlet will have everything. in canada thats mothers music and long n mcquade but your probably not in canada.

    Thats obviously a personal preference but when playing out you don't really wanna have to fiddle around checking tracklists or whatever. Well i don't anyways lol!

    I play on a CDJ 400 and an CDJ 800 (pioneer of course)

    I have played on numarks and denons but there is a reason why pioneer is industry standard. If you have the cash then i suggest you get a pair of pioneers (400 and upwards)

    Look on ebay, or locally however if you want brand new or want to do finance then www.htfr.co.uk is reallly good.

    Also the sites i get off are

    - www.breakbeat.co.uk
    - nu urban music
    - beatport

    etc

    Enjoy!

    I'd recommend taking a look at Denon DN-S 1000 or 1200 if you don't have the cash for the shiny pioneers... they are affordable and do a very good joob, I love my 1000's :inlove:
