Jonathan, don't listen to the comments made on the GU board.
Get to a showroom (I think Sapphires have a demo unit), take a cd with some of your tracks in mp3 format and try it out for yourself.
As far as I am concerned it is as good as vinyl, as long as you only play mp3 files with a minimum of 192kps, and looks just as good as you are still mixing with the deck platter and pitch control.
Chris was blown away with it, and you know how hard he is to impress.
Also, with FS you have a switch so you can also play normal vinyl on the decks if you want, which means you could still bring normal vinyl, and only play the acetate tracks from mp3, then your other tracks on vinyl, rather than dropping your entire record collection into digital format.
Also, remember, finalscratch is rather nice gimmick. People are so interested in Josh Winks club appearences for 2 reasons:
1: Because as a DJ, the man is a legend.
2: They are curious about this use of new technology and want to check it out.
In this world we live in, where everybody and their mother has a pair of 1210's, a little gimmick on your side can only be a good thing
Failing that, if you are still not hot on the idea, get yourself a pair of CDJ800's. All the great features of the 1000's for much less.
Shake your shammy like a bitch on heat!
