    At the moment I currently own 2 x 1210mk2's and a mk3 also, and roughly.... this is bit of a guess but I'd say about 300 vinyl? mainly deeper side of drum and bass, not venturing many years before 2008 apart from various classics,

    Is anyone going to want to take it all together? and what would I ask for all that? or would it better of selling seperate?

    Cheers

    Vinyl on an eBay job lot. Won't make as much but is much less hassle

    I wouldnt sell all of it man, keep your favourites because you'll never replace the memories you made with them with mp3's.

    If you are gonna make the transition, what will you play on? Are you going the serato route / cdj's or a controller? 'coz I'd hang on to those 1210's too if I were you!

    Sell seperately, bit more effort but you'll get more money.

    As for the vinyl, arrange into batches of 10x, 20x etc of the same artist/style/label and sell them in batches, that way you get the most money for least effort. No one wants to buy a job lot of 300 tunes.

    if you want to sell me all your vinyl in one hit.
    i will bag with the intent of selling them individually.
    depending of course on what you have, don't expect retail value for them tho.
    they aint worth it anymore sadly. i'm not trying to do you a favour, i want to make a profit.
