I would stick with the turntables and just upgrade up. I have Technics SL-DZ 1200 and i'm actually planning on getting rid of them. I want to get a set up technic tables and run the serato system. Unless you really want to switch over to cd's i'll stick with the tables and get serato.

I really don't see what the debate is here... I mean, if you are all about vinyl, and you cop Serato... you're still using vinyl, so what? I can't imagine djing with out my SSL now. Cusomized playlists, create crates on the fly and toss records into them instantly, and carry more music then you ever could with vinyl records. What would be the arguement against using it? Oh and there is no sound latency, you can scratch just like you would, there is no seperate hard interface to get used to, and the sound is fantastic.

and no... I don't work for Rane lol

Well I must say Records are what being a real hiphop,R&B and Reggae is all about. CD DJ"s???? Please yall.. How funny that must look @ a HipHop show!! I think you get way more love and respect for the game if you use all wax. Anybody can press a cd player switch on or off go or stop. But can just Anybody dj wit records? You tell me?? It takes the fun out the game for real I think..... Holla!! Upstate Vibe Ent. DJ 808 & Freddy-P 1-315-722-3359 One...................

ditched the 1210s for cdj1000s about 3-4 years ago, never looking back.. they have every capability of the tables and more, better sound quality and more tracks available.

7 years later, By the way I still have my 1210s and still using the same CDJs, the only thing that has changed is the mixers, running a 57Sl with video now.

Serato pics, setup etc

Here is my setup pics, I attached my 1200s so that yall know I didnt get rid of them, I still have them. I have been using the same tables for 15 years, been using the same CDJs since 2005.

Cant see the new picture, but seeing as I just finished replacing the RCA and PC Board from my Technics, im finally thinking bout going 100% digital. While I do love me some vinyl and would never sell my turntables, it's about time to freshen things up a bit. Also with digital, the costs for maintaining is alot less. Im thinking about coppin a new cd setup or just picking up an NS7 to use for gigs, and leave the tables at home since they are more fragile and require frequent maintenance. I just bought 2 new SHURE stylus, 2 new RCA w/PC Board replacements, and 2 new Serato vinyl control records. Easily over $100 in parts to include the labor if you cant do it yourself. Technics 1200's last a long time, but you do have to give them their frequent tuneups/cleaning $$$ to keep them in flawless djing conditions.

yessir real talk right there

I just got back in the Technics world about 5 months ago. I made the digital conversion to CDJ-1000's. Nothing like the natural feel of turntables but the maintenance is a bigger issue than with a controller, CDJ, etc.

Been using my same CDJ-1000 since around 2003, bought another mkII around 2005...no problems whatsoever (knock on wood)

Also turntables make you look like a BOSS at certain events! Will always keep me a set or two from now on just for the flexibility if nothing else.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I am sure my turntables need a good tuneup and cleaning. One of the RCA cords is jacked on mine so it doesnt work with serato well.
