I would use the 1200, and build a suspension system for it. feedback is definitely a problem with bass and decks.
Thanks for all the advice.  Much appreciated..

For DJ use, a 1200.  You can get one on eBay for $500.

For home use, a Linn Basik, Rega Planar 2, or Rega Planer 3 (all used, of course).

Linn looks pretty nice, and a huge wooden plinth..  Kinda like the old Duals..  I have a VPI scout for my home system..  Im looking at either the Linn Basik or an old Dual..  Trying to stay below 500..
The hunt is on....  ;D 
Thanks

Seeing as how I use 1200s I'd say only get them if you're using it to DJ which you're not. It is a good deck overall and reducing vibration is real easy. You can set them on rubber pads which will help absorb a lot off that bass. A quality needle goes a long way too

Sooooo. Did you get a TT? If not I'd +100 on the 1200 mkII. The 1200 was originally built as the second from the TOTL for home use, a technicality many "audiophiles" seem to miss. The wow and flutter specs are far below most other decks specs are, they're built like a tank and because of an upsurgance of use for home systems are infinitely upgradable. I recently bought mine used for $175 with an audio technica cart. The most common problem with them is the capacitors which are easily replaced.

Any suggestions for a good pro TT??  It will only be used for playback so no need for anything fancy..
Thanks

+1 on the technics 1200 you can't beat a classic. Although looking around that Pioneer alternative does look rather tempting

Yep, that Pioneer PLX1000 looks like a hit.  No gimmicky LEDs, buttons or glitzy futuristic design:  http://pioneerdj.com/english/products/turntable/plx-1000.html
