this is just peachy. i finally came to the conclusion that i really really just want to stick to ambient goa and psy trance and guess what? all the stuff i really enjoy and want is only on cd's, with a few exceptions and those i have already on vinyl.
so now i am seriously considering selling my turntables and replacing them with a dual cdj unit and then buying a table later when i have more money to add on to the dual cdj's. this is just a hard decision because i enjoy using tables and vinyl but its not the music i really want to be spinning. i guess the music wins eventually.
so i was wondering if you all had any suggestions on a dual cd deck that would be good for using (im inbetween begineer and halfway decent now) to spin ambient goa/psy trance.
i guess my main needs would be
-MUST read cd-r
-a seamless loop
-cue points, more than one is a plus.
-MUST have some sort of a jog dial.
-nice to have effects but not that big a deal as i can always get an external unit.
i prefer stuff that is very intuitive and doesnt require me having to pick up the manual in the middle of mixing and try to figure out the loop or any other functions.
my budget is around 500...the less the better.
i was looking at some in my price range and found the stanton s700 and s650 models to meet my needs and budget. i know they dont make the best stuff sometimes so i dont plan on using it for years on end. if it even lasts for a year i would be happy as by then i would have saved up for a pio or denon and already scrapped the stanton. some others i found were the denon dn2000 model....didnt seem to have seamless loop though but i would probably prefer quality over the loop.
i own the denon dnx800 mixer so the denon cdj would be usefull with the mixer.
other stuff included the AMDJ PRO 300 and 400.
on the other side i could just get 2 AMDJ pro dj2 individual decks for 189 each. or the pro dj1 for 199 each (does anyone know the difference between the two)
the other individual cd deck option is 2 cdj100 for 260 each...but thats a little too pricey for me
sorry if this is a lot to read but i just have a lot of questions and hopefully id get some answers like always.
oh yeah and if anyone from the Philadelphia area is selling cd decks lemme know....
