If I could buy from an audiophile I would. Everyone I see has been worn to shit by djs and wannabe djs.
I understand where you coming from but they really are built like tanks and able to take the punishment. I've owned a few 1200's and 1210's in the last 5 years and some were purchased from dj's and some weren't but never had any issues. Since they are so popular it's easy to find parts if something needs to replaced and there are still repair shops that maintain them. If you are patient you will find a nice single or pair.
If you really want to go the New route that Pioneer is a good choice but I would also check out this Audio Technica. I owned this one for a bit and loved the shit out of it. As soon as I found a Nice Pair of 1210's, I sold it.
