    Default Quick TT question.

    Ok guys, So i'm kinda strapped for cash but i badly want to get a set of turntables for some reason.

    I've done my research and i've been told technics or str8-150's.

    But i don't have the dosh for a set of either. Would a set of stanton t-62's be ok for just mixing on ? No scratching or turntablism.

    I'm obviously respecting your lust for turntables, but just ask yourself the question - if you're not scratch or turtabilism why go for turntables over CD players?

    I'll own up to something i'm ashamed of. I am only 17, and started off on cdj's. Because i was young and stupid, And never really got to learn dj'ing via vinyls.

    Hence why i want to get TT's and learn vinyls then get timecode after a while.

    Guess that's justified!

    For now you could try to cover up the screen on your CDJs and try mixing like that? It would emulate the learning aspect of TT's and then when you have the cash you could buy some used technics. I know the GC near me are selling two for 700 in really good conditions so they aren't that expensive used.

    I just wouldn't recommend settling for "good enough" because you won't be satisfied and you'll keep wanting to upgrade your equipment. Save up a bit more and grab yourself the industry standard and you'll never need to upgrade.

    I don't have the cdj's anymore, they had to be sold to fund a few things, and whatever production equipment i bought. I just use an X1 and uc 33-e for dj'ing at the minute.

    to answer the question: i'd recommend the numark tt200 over the t.62 for a new, entry level turntable. Its a fine entry level turntable with enough torque to actually scratch. If your just getting into vinyl djing, and want to muck about in your bedroom I think its silly how adamant everyone is about getting a workhorse like the 1200 or str8-150.

    I just picked up a pair of Numark TTXs + mixer + carts/needles for $250 on CL. Had 1210s for more than a decade but rate these Numarks highly. I have a couple of other friends who are using the TTX decks and love them too.
