Technics SL 1210 - the best record player in the world! Nearly all the professional DJs who use records got 2 of these... - but it's also nice in your own flat, it's not only a piece of technology, it's technical perfection wrapped in beautyful simplistic design!
The Deaf Intsitute music hall is the best and hippest music venue in Manchester. But Manchester has lots of great places to catch live music. From the sweaty basement of The Roadhouse, to the boho Night & Day or the cool The Castle, for new and upcoming bands. There are great club nights at Warehouse Project and Band on the Wall. The Apollo and Academies host more established acts.
