Record decks

Hi I'm just asking anybody out there what type of deck and combo to play my soul off. I'm not too jemmed up on which sort of set up to buy, it's only for home use and I have a budget of about a grand or so. Any help would be appreciated, thanks steve

Hi, I use 2 x technics 1200's, 2 powered monitor speakers (many options out there) and allen and heath mixer xonezone - this one   https://www.thomann.de/gb/allen_heath_xone_23.htm?glp=1&gclid=Cj0KCQjwy6T1BRDXARIsAIqCTXooI8irMF8l9XgCoFcoEKCx3mp-mlCOHT25u6Jb7WOwy8TxY6-6EZ8aAj2CEALw_wcB

This all works fine for me at home and has been used at small venues..

Could prob get this for about £1k altho re-furbished 2nd hand technics seem to more more expensive now...

you can get a set of 2nd hand technics for about £600, cheap mixers for £60, an amp for about £100, passive speakers for about £100 - and then leads etc - or you could get cheaper newer decks but honestly the technics are investments and easy enough to get serviced and maintained.

In the house I've got a set of 1210s, Pioneer 450DJM, pioneer amp, wharfdale speakers but occasionally hook up my mackies (don't ask)

Also have a spare set of decks, mixer and my 1000w mackies - luckily only use the decks and mixer when out as our venue has an integrated Bose sound system

I use electro vision pro 150 belt drive decks, 30+ years old and never had a problem, pick them up for £50 in good condition, mixers around £60 and buy active home monitor speakers around £180 a pair , under £300 !!
