Well, I would go with a Pioneer...if you have the cash, pick up a
CDJ-1000...very pricey ($1000 each unit), but it's one heck of a toy. Most
Pioneers have tempo control and pitch lock, which means that you can lock in
the pitch of the vocals, and change the tempo without affecting how the vox
sound. This beast has that, plus instant reverse play, a loop device, and a
giant jog wheel that emulates vinyl. It's pretty awesome. However, if you
can't afford it, I'd go with Pioneers CMX-3000...it's not a self-contained
unit (it has remote controls similar to many other dj cd players), but it
has many of the same features as the CDJ-1000 (the pitch lock)...and it's
much, much smaller. As far as mail order goes, just shop around. There is
a dealer on ebay who has some really good prices, and free shipping. Go to
http://www.pioneerprodj.com for all the specs.
I use Vestax at the moment, and it has been good to me, but I am upgrading
to the CDJ-1000s in the next month or so.
