    Belt drives are really hard to mix with mate. There just too weak. I learned on a pair of Numark tt1650. There the next model up and are direct drive. It's defo worth the extra cash cus you can actually mix on them :)

Fucking piece of shit! cant even touch the platter to adjust the speed cuz if i do it starts going faster than the +8! they're capable of mixing on but the one i got sucks :mad_guy: save your money and get technics yo!

    This is the way to go me thinks. You could then go for budget half decent decks like kam/numark or second hand technics (with a little extra cash)

    When you move up from average decks to really good ones it lets you appreciate how good they are more!!!

    Yeah that's what I was thinking, they suit me though, only been mixing 6-7 months now and I'm always practicing so I'm good considering of the time I've been mixing. Been settin' up some stormin' sets these last few days :)

    if they're free. get them for sure.... (y)
    have a spin on them, get to grips with what mixing is about, learn the ropes etc...
    then when/if you get a better pair of decks (technics ;)) you'll rinse out big time.

    my mates got some gemini belt driven, and when he jumps on my 1210s, he tears it up.

    beleef.

    I had a pair of 1510's as my first decks.
    I learnt to mix pretty well on them and had them for a few years until the belts got too old and stretched.
    Then i got some direct drives and it felt well different and it took me a while to get a feel for them.
    But if you are a beginner and just want to get used to mixing and beat matching then get em especially if they are free!
