    and an amplifier as well, therefore you'll want something like this http://www.htfr.com/more-info/MR244050 (y)

    for £10 cheaper this is basically the same- plus the amp and speakers- minus the crappy dance vinyl.

    Best way to start mixin' imo, if you can start mixin' pretty well on belt drives and move up to direct drives when pos then mixin' quality should be pretty good

    i just think that even someone who has never used decks before should go with direct drive.

    Go on htfr.com, and look for the "Numark TT1625 battle pack", you get 2 decks (direct drive),a mixer,headphones,needles,speakers and all the leads and bit and pieces.
    im 21 and ive been using this for a couple of years now, perfect starter pack!:)
    i think you get some vinyl with it aswell
    The whole bundle costs around £265.00
