Yep, agreed one the TTX1s thing. My mate has, well had, some. At first they seemed great but like the TT1s which came before them they just cant keep time. Wave anything electrical around my Numark TT1s and prepare for a trainwreck! lol

I didnt go down the CDJ route, i went for this ScratchLIVE.net About Scratch LIVE and have never looked back. All the advantages of CDJs, without the disadvantage of less feel, and at less than half the price tag :D
Next up is a new mixer as my Pio 707 is pants. Why oh why cant pioneer make mixers with good sound quality? Well they can now but ill be dambed if im spending going on a grand on a mixer! Any recommendations?>>
I got myself CDJ's and the Technics, mainly because it is far cheaper for me to burn a CD of my own stuff and mix with it than pressing a vinyl / getting a dubplate cut. I can mix reasonably well with both although they both have their different feel.
The real advantage of using CDJ's (beyond being able to copy your own music) is portability. It's far easier to smuggle two CD's onto a plane for a 'quick' gig in Japan than a bag full of 12" :P
I've not used any Pioneer mixers, use vestax ones myself. Depends what you want out of a mixer, do you do a lot of scratching? Do you need effects? What are your requirements? :D
Anyway, still don't know what they're trying to acheive, they might not even be wanting to mix at all :D
