"Gemini XL-100"

I brought the Gemini XL-100 turntable's for my son a few years ago when he first started getting into spinning disk's.
They taught him well and is now using direct drive turntable's as he say's that they are much better for mixing with, but he does not have a bad word to say about the Gemini XL-100's, It's just that they are belt drive and he would rather use direct drive now.

As i said i brought them a few years now and i can honestly say that my son has used them near on every day that he has had them,( which if you where one of my neighbours you would find this a bad thing, they don't appreaciate him playing his music) without anything ever going wrong with them, the only thing that he has had to replace are the needles.

Therefore they where really good value for money. We paid £199 for the package of which you received :- 2 x Turntables, 1 x mixer, 1 x Headphones and 1 x Microphone with all leads necessary. The specifications of the turntables are :-

I and my son would recomend these turntable's to anyone just starting to get into dj'ing, as i said before they are good turntable's and have never let him down, we would definatly buy Gemini again.
