Used market prices
Recently saw an xone 62 going for $300 on the sellers forums. I would imagine that would be a lot higher. What do you think is going on?

Technics 1200/1210s been holding okay. I've bought into one for $400 a few years ago and was able to sell it for $500. I had an 'valuation' on my 1210s, they are pretty new and the service person quoted me $1200 for 1. (but I'm skeptical of that valuation).

A lot of CDJ 1000 mk3s going on sale as well. I guess people are upgrading to 2000s or switching to controller/vinyl.

But lately, I've seen a lot of used gear selling at cheap prices for sure. I would say this is a good time for younglings to start out.

Disclaimer: I am not selling an the xone but i am selling a serato package (haven't had any luck tho).

Honestly I think the second hand DJ gear market is too expensive, these are the prices it should be at. In terms of digital Dj gear id expect to pay 40% less than the current retail price,(general rule for most 2nd hand items) not 10-20% like most people try to sell it as.

With that being said it's good when it comes to selling because I've hardly lost any money when I've come to sell some stuff, sucks to buy.

Guess it depends on which model/year make of Xone 62 it is, but as the new models go for $1500, it's retardedly cheap if it's one of them, but I'd suspect it'd the only model which only has the 1 filter control, but honestly, even for one of them $300 is insanely cheap...too cheap imo...but it's a buyers market as there's so many people who get into DJing to be superstars, realise how tough it is to make and sell up shop pretty quickly, so there's often a lot of stuff being sold without a lot of people buying, which pushes the prices down.

Technics 1200/1210's will hopefully go up in price being that they're not of production now, but still be far and away the best deck around.

Serato is way fucking over priced to begin with imo

It's so unpredictable really, i am constantly buying 2nd hand gear for clients or myself.
Last year for example i bought a Crown DC300a for $900 for a client, this year i have bought 2 for $305 & $320.
Two years ago i sold 8 JBL 2220 speaker drivers for average of about $95each but i sold one last month for $256.

The Technics turntables will be interesting to watch, i think if DJ's still hold on to playing vinyl (even at home) the 1200's will hold there $$, if most DJ's convert to digital then they will drop down.... but who knows!!

@fackedd - yes DJ gear is overpriced but so are a lot of specialised equipment. If they started selling the RRP lower, then we'll have lower used prices.

DVS is overpriced, they are just soundcards with less features. Its crazy people pay $900 for Serato!

@random_kiwi - i remember back in 2007/2008 when bloghouse started reaching our shores we had a sellers market. a lot of demand for CDJs and Serato. It was still a sellers market 18months ago, now its a buyers market but because people are getting into but all those guys that bought into the craze are selling off their products.

I know one kid who 'upgraded' and sold off an xone 62 => djm800 (thats why i put quotations on upgrade) => djm900 and made profit.

I've owned it and been using it since 2004. Considering everyone that owns it is encouraged to be a part of the ongoing development of it and has received free software upgrades since it was released, I think it's a pretty good investment.

How about the retarded individuals that bought Final Scratch and the earlier NI products which had poor support and they were charged for updates which essentially were bug fixes?

What about technics? How much are they asking for 1200/1210 mk2 / mk3d / mk5 / mk5g ?
Knowing that price should increase from left to right, what is the standard for the pair?

About $1000 but i have a client who just paid $1500 for a pair of MK2's, you might find over time the MK5g becomes collectible to some DJ's and the MK2 will hold their value as people like me will pick up the cheap ones to rebuild or scrap for parts!
the mk3d and mk5 aren't very sort after but who knows!

I saw 3 x MKIIs (2 working and 1 not) go for $520ish on ebay the other day, the listing was a pickup only in Wollongong though, I put a bid in anyways (I'd find a way to get them for that price) then forgot and lost by a few dollars. Gutted.

Sorry. but deck doctor in sydney can fix that up.

I just sold my Serato for $295. Thats probably one of the best prices for an SL1 these days considering how aggressive Traktor is getting. i'm actually on traktor now after selling serato.

Its a buyers market, if i wanted to get into DJing now. It would be 1k for top tier software, controllers and headphones. 2k for turntables + mid-teir 2 channel + DVS easy. CDJs are over priced IMO and they start dropping in value as soon as the next best thing gets shipped.

Mk3s used to be in high demand just before the 2000s were released, but still $1k+ for a CD player? A CD player? Crazy.

That's so true, there is nothing in a CDJ2000 that makes it worth $2k, they must be making a huge profit!!
