    Default Tired of s4 - Wanna get started with (timecode) vinyl! Any advice?

    So i've been dj-ing for a while now. Running traktor and an s4. I don't have alot of money to spend but i really want to start using timecode vinyl. I plan on just using my s4 as a mixer and running two tables with timecode. Anyone have any suggestions on decent turntables/timecode that wont break the bank? I mainly wanna start with vinyl to work on tunrtablelism(sp?) skills. The clubs i dj at dont really have room for anything more then an s4 and it works great but i just am looking for smth to work on scratching/juggling etc. for fun in my spare time. (and if i can gig with them then great).
    Thanks!

    +1 - you can faf about looking at vestax and numark and others but technics are the standard for 1 reason - they are the best. Mixing with cheap turntables is a waste of time. shop around and bide your time. Ive bought technics for 99 each in the past. You can get some battered old ones and get them serviced for around 40

    Agreed with everyone above. Technics are the way to go.

    1 Sell the S4.

    2 Get some wheels of steel and a propper mixer and learn for real.

    3 Get gigs.

    4 Get lots of foxy babe groupies and have sex in the toilets of the clubs.

    5 Get massive ego... then you are finally a proppa DJ.
