Im a bit clueless as to how you manage to use the pitch as its next to the wall - doesnt that make things a bit tricky - i have always had my decks positioned normally where the left deck has the pitch is next to my mixer an the ryt deck is next to the wall? I think i would find it quite hard reachin all the way over the deck to change the pitch - actully that would really piss me off. Plz let me know why you do that??????:teeth:

yeah, i find no difference at all between them!
any1 know how to make my belts better? i cant afford to get directs atm!
yeh you buy nicer buckles from any good clothing store...

you cant bro!.... belt drives are belt drives..... they will always slip and are always going to be shit..... i dont even know why they still make them!??

just save up as quick as you can and get yourself some decent directs...... dont bother getting any other in between getting yourself technics or vestaxs either.... will be a waste of money.... just save yourself up £800-£900 and go and buy the best!!

its an expensive game but its defo worth forkin out a wedge for technics or vestex cos they are indestructable if ya passionate bout mixin n ya music. its sometimes worth pickin up second hand technic cos there dont wear easily and spin nice for years n years.

My set up is way, way more ghetto -

2 x DD Numark Turntables (8 years old, shite, but do the job)
Ortofon Concorde Pro S Carts
Marantz amp (£20 from cash coverters, bout 9 years old)
Vestax PMC 06 mixer (simple but sturdy, never breaks!)
Sony speakers on speaker stands to make them head height
Sennheiser Headphones (I forget the model, they were a present)

And that's it - yup I know pretty basic, and sounds like it's horrible, but actually sounds pretty good, every time I move it into a new room (I move house a lot), I spend the first month or so constantly tweaking the levels on the mixer and amp to get it sounding just how I like it (you have to do this as different rooms have different effects on the sound).

Also the speaker stands are really, really important - if anyone hasn't got these I recommend you add these to your list right away - if you look at any decent club set up the monitor is always at head height (or pointing at the head form above). I used to have them sitting on the table with my decks, but you can't hear certain frequencies clearly like this...


Bet nobody can beat that for a ghetto set up! But in my defence, I must have over a thousand records, so you can see where they money's gone!
