    First off...Big ups to onlinedj.com. I'm about to purchase new decks and with great help from this site, I've been able to read some interesting reviews and opinions. FYI- i'm going with MK2's.....

    ....but I'm not grabbing a package deal...SO..., what can you reccomend as far as needles (scratch?), cartridges and mixers. I'm looking for something in the mid-range/mediocre type arena....Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

    Ok well as far as needles and mixers go its really a personal opinion !
    I would suggest u invest in a good set of needles and mixer. You dont really wanna go changin ur gear frequently !

    Different djs prefer different needle designs.
    I suggest before u buy em play with them before u decide.
    I just ordered a pair of stanton str8-80's with the stanton 520 sk carts (dj craze signature series)
    A night club here uses trackmasters but the dj there is thinkin of using the stanton 520sk's he says he likes the sound better on them

    Mixers for scratching ! hmmm thats a tough one. really depends on how much mulah u can shell out ! If i had all the money to buy a scratch mixer it would either be the ecler HAk 320 or the Vestax 07 pro (ISP version)

    if ur gonna be mixing techno then id suggest u go in for the roland dj 1000 or the infader from red sound.

    cheap idea

    Okay..

    Here's the idea. I found on 123DJ.com that they have MKll's for $449.00. That's cheap as all hell. Now..if your goto pioneer's site and look up technics, you'll find an area that says local dealers. If you live in the 2-1-5 like I do...the results shows Ciruit City. Well....It's always been circuit Citys deal to beat ANY price listed by(I think) 10%. So in essence I could get 2 new technics for close to 800.00.

    That leaves another 200-300 to play with getting a mixer and carts.

    Does sound better than hooking up with a used package on Ebay?

    Has anyone tried this?
