Actually I am an engineer, at work anyway. :wink: Richie Hawtin shows up with two Ipods, it doesn't make him any less of a DJ now does it?
Thanks for all the advice guys, I wasn't trying to start anything, just trying to get into the digital age here and bypassing CDs altogether because I mixed with those once and did NOT like the cue wheel at all. A lot of stuff isn't available on vinyl and I'm much better and quicker at pulling songs out of mixes I like and converting to MP3, ID it and buy it electronically, than to go searching, buy it on a record, then wait for something to show up in the mail. I am bringing vinyl as a backup and that most of my d n' b is in record form. I've wanted to start spinning dubstep as well, but where I live the record selection sucks, that and the big cost of buying another whole collection of records...I'm rambling though.
I have heard wax paper works pretty well at attracting dust away from what you want to protect.
