    Default Just inherited a buttload of Cash - What should I buy?

    So I just received a small fortune. The only thing I have right now are VCI 100s.

    Obviously looking to pick some things up. What would you recommend?

    Right now I am going to grab;

    Alienware PC with upgraded Soundcard - This is a laptop BTW, not a tower PC
    Audio8 DJ
    S4
    DJM2000 - cancel out my need for Audio 8 I suppose
    Crane Stand

    What else should I grab, I am rather new so I thought it'd be best to hear from you guys to assist me in grabbing some gear that would definitely help me out in my journey.

    s4'S? for a home setup i'de be looking at maybe a 4d and some technics or cdj's and or a nice little pioneer setup and by little i mean top of the line maybe an x1 tsp or serato aces i mean if you've got the money why not go large, not sure why the audio 4 with the s4 its abit counter productive, im guessing your abit of a gamer thats why the alienware pc imo id grab a macbook pro or a macbook but thats just me

    if he's buying more than one S4 he'll probably need to invest in a new house as they are the size of a small boat!

    You should hold a contest for djtechtools forum members with 6 letters in their username to win one of your s4s ... just a thought :-P

    In seriousness, I would go with Traktor Scratch Pro, some Technics 1200s (boo cdjs), x1s, Maschine, and a mixer or two. Without DVS, I would go for the Allen & Heath 4D because that thing is a mountain of sex and a half. Then, cocaine parties either way.

    I don't know why I made S4 plural, I am only buying one haha. Also, I meant Audio 8 DJ.

    I am looking to get into club gigs later on, are the S4 no good for this or do I have to by turntables?

    I also should note I am more into controllerism and such. I am thinking of adding Maschine to my list as well.

    You can use whatever you want, it's just clubs usually tend to have CDJs or turntables. Honestly, though, I've seen a lot of DJs bring a lot of different things, or use what's there, what have you. I would stick with what works best for you. The S4 would work fine in a club, although you have to keep in mind all the necessary wiring and cleaning up that needs to be done

    I am worried a bit about this, as I have never mixed [or even attempted] with turntables or CDJs [which would be I good case in picking some up I guess] so with that said maybe I should get with the club standard.

    In comment to my Alienware pickup; I do graphic design work as well and game, so it'd be a nice all around machine for me. In addition, I have never worked with a MAC, which would add to my already steep learning curve I have to overcome.

    Edit: I am thinking I may grab This Deal
