    Default Are JB systems T2 good TTs ?

    The title says it all, I think I can get these pretty cheap, but still no word on the selling price. They do come with ortofon needles. Should I buy these turntables or some other kind ?

    Never heard of them. I don't know if that speaks for itself (I consider myself pretty tech-savvy when it comes to knowing gear) but that's all I can say.

    I'd take a look at some reviews online if you can't find anyone with first-hand experience. Otherwise, there is something to be said for bigger name brands as opposed to no-names.

    Never heard of them, but for the price of them you'd be better saving a bit more and buying second hand 1200's. Theres not really much point in buying TT's new IMO, most of them last forever anyway (especially technics)

    It's not a Super OEM from what I can tell, and it's a small belgian brand that I've never heard of.

    I've looked at some local DJ forums and a few review sites, and nearly everybody thinks they are crap.
    But most likely I can get 2 of these for less then half the price of a single used 1200.
    So if they work properly and especially when you keep in mind that they do come with ortofon needles, it 's gonna be a steal.

    If it turns out he does ask a lot more then I expected and they are pretty beaten up and the needles are worn out a lot, then I'll just be a very good boy and hope that santa will put some 1200s or 2010s under my christmas tree.

    Just got word from the seller. I can get 2 for 170 euro or 226 dollars. The cheapest technics I could find were 275 euros or 366 dollars for a single one.

    366 for technics is a decent price given today's market. I'd buy them for that if they're in good shape, though it'd be harder if they were mk2s.

    Say what now ? Did you just refer to the technics 1200 mk1 ? I think a mk2 is the absolute minimum for DJ purposes, a pitch fader etc. that's a basic necessity.

    But +0,5 on that economy quote, the recession is felt hard in the DJ world but prices could and should still be better.
