    what decks did you get?

    best place for cheap vinyl is Music & Video Exchange. There are a few of them dotted aound London. I've got classics and new bits in there for proper cheap (Hard Noize for £4). Sometimes you have to look quite hard but you defo find some quality in there

    vinyl aint cheap

    if you wanna start out cheap consider buying someones old collection, try places like ebay or classifieds.

    Cool. Are those the ones with the straight tone arm?

    Personally though man i reckon you would've done yourself better getting Technics as they are pretty much industry standard and (i feel) its better to practise on the best from the beginning. But i'm assuming there's budget issues or whatnot....

    Check Richer Sounds for cheap amp & speakers. Wicked quality too

    yeah man they are those ones, they got the digital display and that aswell.. to be fair for the price i payed i got both decks, good mixer, and a desk to put it on. They seem alright to be honest. I would have liked technics but it was just easy to get these and its only for a hobby

    Also invest in a decent set of needles. Shure M447's are dope. Pretty expensive but worth it in the long run and the sound quality out of them is good too

    fair enough man

    i saved for about 9 months to get my 1210's when i was 17 and its the best investment i've ever made.

    Now wait for the all consuming vinyl addiction to take over your life and wallet...
