Umm, there's no other answer than Vinyl man..
Vinyl is superior over CD in all aspects if you gonna DJ (except that it's heavier to carry lol).

This is another vote for vinyl, but you better have the coin for the turntables and needles, especially the space for all those crates of records.

I agree with everyone else..........VInyl, and as for the turntables? The Technics 1200's are expensive, but they last forever. I've been using the same ones for 15 years.

Cool

We cant win 'em all...heheh, cd's get scratched very easily than vinyl..(what i think)..and Vinyl gets really freakin' dusty no matter how well its packed in the crates. i even wear my t-shirt that reads: VINYL FREAK from Urban Outfitters...lol,

peaceouttie,

Got to be VINYL. I have never mixed with cd even though I have a cd mixer. I use that for live accapellas.

Jason has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I look at my crates now and think, Gosh, what am I gonna do now with all this shiz? I even don't remember what a lot of them sound like. MC Brains, Tara Kemp, etc. Who??? All these records just gathering dust.

CD's -- hide 'em, under your bed, upload 'em to your computer, make custom comps, make custom-edits, burn copies, rather than buying doubles of records.

Vinyl is easier to match beats, mix, and scratch with.
Vinyl sounds nicer than CDs, but only if they don't have scratches on them.
It's so much more convenient carrying CDs and a dual CD player, than records and 1200's. Them heavy suckers!

Vinyl is definately the way to go to be a true mixer. I DJ'd for 8 years! I sold my equipment, but kept all my hard to find Freestyle records. Oh how I love them!
