    Hey guys. I'm firstly a producer and am a noob to DJing with decks etc so bear with me :D!

    Was thinking of getting these as I have limited finance:

    http://www.decks.co.uk/package/Citronic_MPCDS3_Behringer_VMX100_50554

    I already have headphones, can you guys recommend what else I need, and if they look OK to you? I have experience DJing on a laptop, but I want to try the real thing.

    Cheers!

    I don't know about those CDJs but Behringer is a good product. Your gonna need an amp and some speakers if you don't already have some.

    Dont take the advice about behringer, my experience with them was a busted mixer after about 2 months. And thats through no fault of my own, just fucked up.

    Dunno much about cd decks so cant really advise you.

    If you're used to djing on a laptop you could probably try serato/traktor or something and use vinyl decks.

    Some behringer stuffs alright for a while, while being the key word there mind.

    To be fair to them, they never have a problem replacing/repairing, but i prefer it not to break in the first place to be honest.
