    hit craigslist for Technics 1200's. Shouldnt run you more than $250 for one in perfect condition. They will seriously last a long time.

    I have a pair of Stanton T.62's and while they are entry level direct drive turntables they do the job just fine for me, just make sure you get some real slippery mats. They were $250 Canadian I believe.

    I have one TTX, is has a good motor with a decent torq. It isnīt a 1200 though.... The torq isnt as good an the engine lacks a bit of power compared with the 1200. Also the arm is bit lighter. I donīt scratch much but the TTX can pull the job defently. It is a good TT no complains but if you can buy a 1200 go for it . The other thing is that the TTX is very light and it is suceptible to needle jumps on party enviroments, the 1200 are heavy and steady. Both of them will require nice cartridges and scratch needles obviously for your purposes.

    I went on and searched for technics on craigslist.com, and found great deals on a pair of technics ,mixer and coffin for $750 I tried Los Angeles, Chicaco,NY and phoenix and they all had technics for sale ,most of them were sold as the set (mixer & two turntables ) This website is world wide so you can get great deals anyware.Just simply log in to craigslist type in your state or country and go under musical instruments and type in technics and chose the deal you like and go check out the gear .
