    So I bought some Technics finally (SL1210M3D) off ebay for £400 and everything was fine apart from when I put the pitch to +8 and the record went way too fast. I tried this on djdecks (serato-type software) and it said +14!
    WTF am I supposed to do?
    thanks

    damn it! when ever I buy decks they never seem to work properly so I go and spash out all that money and they still are broken (I'm still paying my parents back £145)
    anyway that would be good if you gave me the technicians business card thanks :)

    how much of a problem is it?
    in theory +8 should now be +2, i mix quite quickly and rarely push the pitch below zero but i dunno how fucked up the rest is
    peronally i'd jus get on the ass of the person that sold em to u,
    if he advertised they were working fully on ebay u've got a good case on ur hands
