MK5s baby!! =-) with crates and crates of vinyl still, which I find myself having to explain what vinyl is to kids these days…

These things are still mint! I’m wondering if since Technics went out of biz if they will be worth anything down the road

I’ve got some SL1210 mkII’s in my attic.

Along with a PIONEER CDJ500, ALLEN and HEATH ZONE 64 mixer and around 700 vinyl ranging from funky house, progressive house, euphoric trance, hard trance, techno and Gabba. Lol.

Oh the young free and single days lol.

Sound forge and fruity loops were my best of friends for a VERY long time.

That mixer looks similar to a Gemini FX7000 I had once.

I never got into the cd-j era…all vinyl 3 tables, mixers and my 909s and 303s haha…Those were the days man. Hanging out with Frankie Bones, Joe “hyperactive” and crew…good times for sure…from what I can remember :wink:

This is all I have left (old pic) but the top table was my very first POS as well is the wax atop of it lol

To make matters worse I bought them in London so when I used them in the states I always had to carry around a step up/down converter for the euro plugs…PITA!

I’m with you on that one! The sad thing is they are all 10 steps away from me!! All packed up in storage :frowning:

I keep saying when we move to a bigger place I’m going to set them up!! 10 years later…“when we move to a bigger place I’m going to set them up!” :slight_smile:

Even if I don’t spin they look SEXY all set up in a room hehe

No DJ experience here, but I miss my TT and vinyls as well. There was a richness to them that you can’t get on digital. I miss the hiss and pops just before the music starts. I also miss hearing full record sides on late night radio.
