yeah i was thinking the same thing the other day (to save some cash)... the con the sales dude gave me is it will probably cause u a lot of frustration cause u wont be able to just scatch wheneevr you want (cuz u only have 1 cdj800) and therefroe you'll have to plan ur track selection/order more carefully..

in the end i thought screw that and decided to go with cdj 1000s. (yes i know.. not saving cash anymore.. but im getting a good deal!)

considering you're going to realise that it takes more than a week to learn to scratch, and you can't master it in a month, you'll get over it quickly.

the salesman is an idiot. it's the same fucking shit, just in different places, I own 2 different models of CD players and never become frustrated. but then again i also have a 4 channel mixer and 2 turntables as well, so my options aren't so limited

just buy whatever you need to buy.

IMO if you want to scratch, buy turntables - it feels more real than scratching on CD players. You can buy a cheap direct-drive turntables for nothing. $299 for the T.60 stanton from cannon (but at that price you get nothing) - that will give you an indication as to weather or not you do want to scratch, because after all..... its only really scratching if vinyl is involved.
