Mixer Serato

What kind of Dj equipment should I start out with?

For a novice dj, what equipment should I start out with? I'd like to start out with classic turntables or a cd turtable set. What do I need to look for? How much am I going to spend? I basically need general advice on what I need.

I completely disagree with this guy above me.
I'm a DJ in Las Vegas, which is the unspoken world capital for DJ's. Nobody, and I mean nobody is using CD players here.
If you plan on doing house parties and low level corporate events then fine, go ahead and get the table top CD players. But, if you want to go out into the big boy world and play in the major leagues, then you're gonna need to know how to work your vinyl.
Most venues, clubs, bars, whatever, have Serato Scratch Live as their base DJ setup [operated by turntables, not CD players] so all you have to do is bring your laptop and plug into their system.
Your most money should be spent on turntables and a mixer...forget that other stuff for now. You can pick up a pair of Technics and a decent mixer for around $800.00. I would suggest buying the turntables used to save you money, but purchasing your mixer brand new.
Play around with your mixer and turntables for a while and get comfortable with it. Learn the basics, watch other DJ's, ask questions and make sure that you really want to pursue it as either a serious hobby or even a career [because it get's really expensive, really fast]
The biggest mistake I see with new DJ's is they have their parents front them the money for brand new turntables, a battle mixer, Serato, a laptop, an amp, and a good speaker set-up, only to realize that DJing isnt for them. Well, you dont have to spend $4500 just to realize that you dont like something. Start small, with 2 1200's and a mixer [Vestax & Rane are good]. Practice into your headphones [oh yeah, you need headphones...good ones] and get comfortable with your skills. Mix with REAL VINYL...none of this digital BS. It's the quickest way to learn how to be a real good DJ.
Then when you feel that you're good enough, go out and get an amp, some speakers, and possibly even a Serato set up.
It's going to take some time before you're good, so stick with it....and for crying out loud...stay on top of your vinyl!!!! If you're playing the top 40 hits from 4 months ago, nobody wants to hear it!!!!!!!!! They want that song that they saw on MTV yesterday, or that song that they heard on the new Lil Wayne mixtape...and it's your job to have it!!
And one last thing...dont copy anybody else's style. In the course of you learning, you'll develop your own style. And dont waste time thinking up some corny DJ name that sounds one way, but is spelled another [like Alpyne, or Pyaneer] because your name will easily get confused with other DJ's who spelled it the right way and are now taking your business [do you think Oakenfold, Tiesto, Sasha or Donald Glaude has that problem?]
Wow, this quickly turned from tutorial to "what I hate about new DJ's".
Anyway, hope this helps.
