    Obviously, I want a Pioneer CDJ 1000 but that's not gonna happen as I just put down a shit load of money on a new bed. I want to get a CD deck because there are a lot of pluses. Also, I am really trying to save up and get into production and want to play my own stuff. My brother is trying to make more dubstep beats and I want to rep his stuff, too.

    So, for someone on a budget, what is a decent CD deck?

    at least you got your pririties straight. there are plenty of people who would not have bothered with a bed and got the cdj 1000s.

    have you had a look at denon DNS 1200? with usb port. looks well good and many argue denon are just as good as pioneer. I think you can get a pair for about 800 new

    easy, thanks for the replies. my girlfriend would have killed me if i bought a CDJ instead of a new bed, so the choice was not difficult.

    i've looked at serato and it seems to be cheaper than a CDJ 1000. of course, i'd need to get a new computer too. i'll check out the denon and numarks.
