    i would hold out for some second hand technics. you can get them reasonably cheap and they are definitely worth the wait. if you get more serious your just gunna end up getting some technics anyway, might aswell just get them straight away

    the mixer's not really important. you can get a cheap two channel one that does the job fine and upgrade later. you can really feel the difference between decks though, and you will find this out soon after you start mixing so i suggest just waiting a bit and going for technics
