Buying DJ equipment in Abu Dhabi/Dubai?
I don't usually ask questions myself but has anyone had any experience buying DJ equipment in U.A.E? In particular SL1200's?

I'm moving there shortly and I don't particularly want to transport decks half way around the world to various destinations.

I just bought my turntables new in Sydney and sent them straight to Sweden where I now live becasue I knew I wouldn't get them this cheap when here. I used a company called Discount Freight and it didn't cost more that $400 to send turntable, mixer & case and 100 records by seafreight. SHouldnt cost you too much to send to Dubai.

TurntableTech, did you manage to find other shops than the above? Just arrived here and in desperate need of an UPGRADE.

I wanted some Spacetek stands for my table but they dont have any distributors down here. Sent them an email and they were willing to ship them from the UK. Trying to find out how much S&H will be....

EDIT:
Geez... At least they are giving a small discount
UNI-BD-DBL 171.30 -15% 145.60
UNI-BD 149.57 -15% 127.13
22kg = 134.60
Total 407.33

My work has a chemical plant in abu dhabi and whenever any of us aussies go over there we are given a 24/7 security guard so that should give you an idea of what it's like........though if you just stay in the "touristy" places you'll be sweet.

There is ALOT of kidnappings of westerners over there though.

I see you're selling the CDJ2000 at 6600 Dhs (2050 AUD), is that your confirmed price? Currently the CDJ1000 MKIII is retailing for 5100 Dhs (1550 AUD) last I checked at mall of the Emirates... and when will you have it in stock so one can have a play around with it???

On a side note, as for the ignorant comments about this being a unsafe place, thats bullocks. Ive never felt more safe in my life despite having lived most of my life in the western world... heaps of bad things about this place, but your personal safety is not one of them

Dude are you a bit slow or what? Replying to a question more than 13months old???

Definately inline with the shit customer service reputation the United Arab Emirates is reknowed for

No wonder I had to find other avenues to pickup some turntables because your wack store kept saying they had turntables coming in over a period of 9mths but never eventuated so I gave up. The same goes for your overpriced DJ equipment.

What I managed to pickup quicker and cheaper than not dealing with the muppets at DJ corner:



2 x *NEW* TECHNICS SL1200 3300AED from Oman shipped to Dubai
1 x *NEW* ALLEN & HEATH MIXER $430USD from US shipped to Abu Dhabi
1 x *NEW* RANE SCRATCH LIVE SL3 $460USD from US shipped to Abu Dhabi

This country would be so much better off if the were less bargain basement 3rd world developing country retards in customer service roles or in positions of decision making.
