Might grab a Twelve Mk II as long as the reviews check out. It now has DVS timecode built in.

I've been out of the DJing game for over 20 years now, things have changed quite a bit (no DVS back in my day) so I wanted something cheap to test the waters, I can upgrade later if the interest is still strong.
But these Twelve's look great to me, no needles, no warped vinyl (I had real trouble finding unwarped Serato control vinyl), no tone arms etc, same feel when scratching (I assume). Seems to make a lot of sense...if it all works as advertised.
The other thing that's grabbed my attention is all the melodic stuff that DJ Brace does using a MIDI pedal and the Vestax deck controlling platter speed, but also possible with the Reloop 8000 Mk 2. It would be great if this was possible with the Twelves but it doesn't seem so. I guess there's always Pitch n Time in Serato.
