whats the major differences? is it worth forkin out for 1210s?
To put it simply, they're the same deck, one's black and one's silver
1200's are silver 1210's are black. It's amazing how many people think they are different...
all about the 1200s
For sure. I don't know why the 1210's are so popular.
1200 = Silver
1210 = Black
The 1200 silvers are the original... and if was buying decks for the first time i'd go for these as they match the Allen and Heath in colour.
The 1210 MK5 G's are the ones tho if you can spend a bit extra...
The MK5's also have the guard on the on/off switch that prevents accidently switching the deck off while in the mix... trust me it happens sometimes - which is a useful feature
how come 1200's cheaper 2nd hand then?
When things are second hand they will be priced acording to the condition they are in.
When brand new they are exactly the same price.
Personally i think because 1200's have been around longer hence when you buy second hand you never really know how old they are... Some i have seen are nearly 20 years old but still look no different than a new one apart from 20 years of wear on the Quartz direct drive which spins the platter. New decks increase pitch alot quicker than an older deck - especially when riding the pitch etc
yup, 1200 mk5s FTW!
had to get my djm600 in grey because of them too, heh. bet they would look lovely next to an allen and heath...... ONE DAY!
will they hold a beat anywhere near aswell as when they were new?
1210 mk 3's. sorted
Depends on how old and what condition they are in.
If they are really old and have been poorly looked after etc they are lekely to be a bit worn.
If their a couple of years old and have been kept like the royal corgies then they should be fine.
If bying second hand the best thing you can do is test them out though.
You can work out the age of a Technic from the serial number on the back
no Riisu!! dont fall for the Allen and Heath.... Pioneer all the way man..... well.... unless your getting that Xone:82000000000 or what ever its called... thats the only one i like... but that beast if fukin expensive!
useless information unless you tell us how to do it....
