    Default Numark vs Pioneer

    Hey Guys,

    Right now I am on the search for some good at home practice tables. I know the CDJ's are the club standard but I'm sure as everyone would agree they are EXPENSIVE!! So on my search for an affordable set of CDJ's I came across Numark's version of Pioneer CDJ's. But I am at a crossroads because people say I should save other say its okay for home practice, so I'm asking you, The People of DJTT! Help me on my quest! What are your thoughts, suggestions and answers.

    don't forget their are other brands beside Pioneer and Numark. Reloop, Gemini, American Audio, Denon (amazing gear)

    I hate when people assume that it's a Pioneer world

    What "style" or work flow are you looking to practice? Understanding that will be critical to making the tradeoffs in terms of buying any gear.

    Are you wanting to scratch with CDs? Are you wanting to do long mixes and beatmatching? Are you wanting to emulate a specific club setup and build time with that? Are you wanting to put together a mobile DJ setup that you can use to make some $$$?

    Stuff like Rekordbox might also be a factor. Seeing as most clubs have Pioneer gear, and I'm going by the assumption that you would like to play out later, using Rekordbox could make that way easier. Just roll in with your USB flash drive(s) and off you go. Of course this is true for other DJ gear as well (Denon, for sure, has decks that take USB sticks), but it might make your life a tiny bit easier. Your choice of course.

    Long mixes mainly hour to four hour sets. But being able to do long mixes at clubs as well as be mobile would be awesome because then I could double the income. But preferably being able to do long sets at home is what I want just to make mixes and get them out there to clubs and other people.



    being able to scratch would be pretty cool but its not necessary.
