    Default would you buy it?

    got a quick question for everyone. I recently got into djing as a hobby and moved my way up from a mixtrack to traktor S2. However, i believe i found a good deal on a vinyl setup that might be foolish to pass up on. can you guys give me some advise whether its worth it or not. here's the setup

    2 technics SL 1200 Mk5
    2 dust covers
    2 shure 447
    2 stanton 500
    1 vestax pmc 05 iii
    Serato SL1 with vinyl and discs
    plus odyssey coffin

    i can get it for $1500. what do you all think? thanks

    that's the best tables, mixer & carts from a few years ago, sl1 is an old soundcard but apart from only having 4 ins and outs still fine to use, check out the quality of the tables and mixer when you get there but they should be fine, he is a scratch guy so either he raped all his gear, or gave up on the dream after blowing a lot of cash, or got married and wasn't allowed to keep the gear LOL. to buy it all brand new you are looking at well over $4000 I'd call straight away if you have the cash.

    Personally I would use the vestax mixer, and sell the S2 but if you had to if the mixer is in good condition you could get around $400 for it in Australia

    Last time i passed up a deal similar to this I regretted it for like 2 years.

    I'd hop right on this.

    It's a fair deal, not sure I would be as excited about it as some people are suggesting here since you could get this kind of deal on ebay.

    Definitely not a steal like people are suggesting.

    Depends what kind of deals come up by you. Pair of MK5s with M447s go for around $750 on craigslist, SL1 for $300 (tops), that mixer for $150.

    Personally I wouldn't buy it for 1500, but if you live in a place with less fortunate craigslist opportunities it's a fair deal compared to what you would pay on ebay for that and MK5s (1000-1100 shipped for a pair with needles). Then $300 for an sl1 and that mixer or similar for $150-$200 shipped. So it's pretty similar to what you could grab on ebay at any time.

    I would offer him $1200 and try to get him to compromise at 1300 if you want all that stuff.

    I'd do the EXACT same thing. Crisp hundreds have a way of changing minds... quick.

    If you have the cash, and just want to keep it simple... it sounds like solid setup for a reasonable price. It's not an "amazing" deal, but it's one of those deals that is priced pretty solidly and you wouldn't be overpaying for.

    Of course you can piece together stuff for cheaper (it's what I and many others have done) but there's something to be said for just being able to grab everything in one fell swoop.

    If you have the cash, I'd say go for it. It's a solid setup that you won't be disappointed with. I would try to talk the guy down though. But as those are MK5's, it really isn't a bad deal as long as they are in decent condition.
