Also do you know what cartridge will be on your SL1210?
(By the way you may get a few members following on from em who will tell you the SL1210 is only a DJ deck and not very good. IME & IMHO it's a great sounding TT. It can do DJ and home audio very very well.)
I'l assume it's frowned upon over here, but UK Bass music, i.e. Dubstep, D&B and maybe a bit of Garage/Jungle.
Not entirely sure what cartridge although it will probably be a Stanton 505 V3. Does it have a big affect on the rest of the equipment?

Are you looking at speakers or are you headphone listening?
Will you needs an amp or just a TT pre amp?
Will your budget include a cart?
Dont worry too much about cables.
Speaker set up I would say, although if it's much more expensive then I'l make do with headphones.
I'm not really sure what amp I need, that's why I'm asking.
Will most likely buy a cartridge and turntable together so I'm not including that in the budget so the budget will include an amp and speakers/headphones. Also is a graphic equalizer needed?
