    Hi I'm looking to start DJing, been messing around at my mates house he's got some vinyl decks and now I want to start getting into it. I wanna buy some CD decks which allow playing MP3's aswell. Don't really have a lot of money to spunk max would be £350-500.

    Any advice on good CD-J's to start up on.

    Cheers

    IMO CDs will be a dead media in 18months max.

    skip the plastic and go straight for the Vestax VCI-300 mk2's.

    embrace the future.

    if you want my advice, save up longer or get a credit card or buy it on finance.

    i've always regretted buying any gear that wasn't as good as you can get (computers/decks/tvs etc)

    that 410 unit looks gash.
