12 classic dance music items you could buy for the price of a set of Technics
We've already brought you news of the relaunch of the iconic Technic's 1200 turntables. We've even put together a handy set of opinions you can spout when they next come up in conversations.
But as news reached us today that each unit would retail at $4000 - thats £5,483.86 for a pair at the time of writing, we figured we'd have to step up with some more advice. Technics are undoubtedly a piece of DJ history and a very hansom bit of kit, but are they really worth dropping a few months salary on?
Only you can answer that question for yourself, but to help you make a more informed decision, we've got googling and put together a list of 12 things you could buy instead of the new 1200s.
Here is that list.
