    no one should have to worry about whether their mixing ability will be affected by the equipment, regardless of what format they play on.

    as long as vinyl is still in use turntables should be given as much care and attention as possible, so that djs don't have to compromise on their style

    It's a big shame that decks aren't set up properly any longer, who can blame a dj when this happens? They're used as CD case rests more often than not!

    Seen crappy half-hearted attempts at turntables being set up loads of time.

    i dont understand tho, cause everyone knows andy is vinyl and dubplates, and if they are serious they would need to get him down for a night, so at least one night they all fully know that the technics need to be up to speed so they just need to maintain that standard.....which in principle sounds easy

    That's very bad news because I think it's djs like andy and friction which inspire people to go with vinyl instead of cds when they get into mixing. Would think if a night booked friction, they'd get the turntables set up right.....

    you would hope so, but a lot of people will be running nights only to make a profit, and not because they give a fuck about the music, so they don't give a shit they aren't playing vinyl. sad but true.
