    Sadly I have not seen any good used deals on it yet, not even anyone selling it used in my country..
    Last week there was a demo unit DB4 from proaudiostar on ebay with a buy it now of $2100 or best offer, i wish i had the cash and they were going to let me do a partial payment but someone snatched it before i could.

    Don't even talk to me about RGAS. I want a DB4 so much, but there's no way I could afford it without selling a kidney.

    The hard part is that is is within reasonable reach if I sell a couple things and spend a week's paycheck. I was just hoping I would still be able to keep the S4 but that isn't possible and I'm not willing to sell my Technics.

    I need to find out if my copy of maschine is Edu or not I can't remember. I have a feeling it is and I'm stuck with it though otherwise that would make things easier since I never use it.

    RGAS man...

    I remember when I lusted over the Xone: 4D and finally got it and it was epic. The 4D was an imperfect machine though and the MIDI interface was outdated, the DB4 would be flawless if it were just scratch certified.

    I love this video:

    i bought a db4 nearly two weeks ago and i have to say its the best mixer i put my hands on... the eqs are so much better then the traktor internal ones, the filters are " just a&h " no need to say more. the fx section is very complex and sounds fantastic and is a good combo with the traktor fx.

    i was in exactly the same situation like you about 5 weeks ago... i sold my kontrol s4 for 650 euros on ebay and bought a new db4.

    if you can afford it, do it theres nothing out there what sounds nearly this perfect than the db4.

    i use it with traktor scratch pro 2, 2 x1s and a maschine and im really happy with this setup.

    i was never really satisfied with the kontrol s4, a real mixer is way better and this one is the best you can get, if you can afoord it

    You pretty much summed up my thoughts exactly.

    I have two X1s sitting around, the S4 isn't doing it for me anymore it just doesn't feel like a real mixer and the faders and plastic top bother me. If I want jogs I'll use timecode vinyl (if only it were scratch certified).

    I like the idea of having something portable but I can live without it.

    Hey, are there any Xone:92 owners/lovers in this thread?

    I'm a 4-band addict and would find it extremely hard to part with my beloved 92. But the DB4 is just so awesome. I spent some time time on it, but not nearly enough to get a proper feel for the EQ.

    I know it's a bit like apples & pears, but how does the DB4's EQ compare to the 92's?

    I have a spare 2D collecting dust, and if I sold my 92 also I would have enough money for a DB4. But selling my 92 would take a serious amount of convincing, it's like selling a 1200. It's gonna be all down to the EQ section.

    I think the 4 band eq is a little overrated. I had a 92 for a while and liked the 3 band 4D eq better.

    I think the db4 will blow them both away since it will have a 3 band eq, 3 band issolator, and the hp/lp filter eq which looks really interesting.
