    Default Suggest a decent 2 channel mixer for me pls.

    I am fully external using an X1 and a mixer, or will be once I can choose which mixer to buy. I am looking for a decent 2 channel mixer, I don't want to spend the hundreds and hundreds an Allen & Grief would cost, and so far I have only really seen numark and Gemini mixers that don't cost the earth, but even when I started mixing on the old 1210s I wouldn't have bought one, so unless they have upped their game I'd like to stay away from them. It's got to have a relatively small footprint too, and it can be quite simple as Traktor has all the knobs and whistles I need incorporated.

    I am on the look out for a DJM-300 as it would fit the bill perfectly, but if anyone can suggest anything else I would appreciate it greatly.

    I currently use a FaderFox DJ2 with my X1 and mix internally.

    Thanks, I love you all.

    Seriously.

    A&H Xone:22 is a very nice mixer, and its price is not so high

    Played around with the DJM400 and liked it a lot. The FX were good and the knobs were solid.

    It's almost 300 in the uk......great mixer though, it's in my sights

    I'm leaning towards a Denon DX-N120, anyone got any experience of them?

    I've played on a friend's djm 300. I stayed in the green so couldn't notice first hand, but being from the djm 500/600 era there's a chance it will distort badly if pushed a bit into the red.
    What I didn't like was down to not having a cue/master level pot for better headphone monitoring. The djm 400 has the same limitation, but some effects. Don't know whether it has the 800's limiter or how badly it distorts.

    I love my DN-X120. It's a great no frills mixer. Heavy scratchers probably won't like it, but for me it works great. It's one of the few mixers under $300 with balanced outputs.
    DVS setup: Traktor Scratch Pro, 2 X Denon DPDJ-101, Numark DXM06, Novation Dicer, Compaq Presario F750CA, Audio 8DJ
    Controller setup: Traktor Scratch Pro, 2 X Denon DN-SC2000, Denon DN120X, Compaq Presario F750CA, Audio 2DJ,

    I had a 300 for years when I was on 1210s, never had a problem with it tbh.

    For headphone monitoring I use my ears

    Yo Dave, I wanted to spend 100 or less, but that limits me to Nomarks and Gemini rubbish. Think I am gonna have to can the 'cheap' aspect unless I can bag a bargain on ebay.

    Will look out on decks. maybe you can have a word with your inside man for me
