    Default 10" Mixer case that fits SL1 box?

    Hello
    I have a 10" technics SH-DJ1200 mixer.
    And a serato box version 1 (the first, big one).
    I'm trying to find a mixer case where the serato box will hide in the well.

    Does anyone have this case, with serato hidden inside?

    I would like the leave the serato box hooked up to the mixer when i transport it.

    I'm also considering using a ground extender so that the grounds on the mixer are a little easier to access (I could mount these ground extensions to somewhere on the case with easy access). Any thoughts on that?

    Have you thought of internally grounding (I assume) your turntables? That might be a simpler solution.

    Haven't tried stuffing my serato box into the box with the TTM-56 yet. I'll try it and let you know, I can't imagine the dimensions would be that off.

    I appreciate that! Thank you. I do know about the internal grounding thing - I guess I'm a little nervous to do such a thing on my babies (12 years rocking the same 1200's!). Are there risks or downsides?
    The ground connector on my mixer is in a really bad place, below all the RCA wires, so hard to access in a case, that's why I'm trying to make the ground thing easier.

    I tried, I couldn't do it with my current case/mixer setup.

    I have a Rane TTM-56 and a Road Ready 10" mixer case.

    Mixer Dimensions (WxHxD): 9 x 13 x 3" (22.86 x 33.02 x 7.62cm)

    I could maybe fit it in if I had some lower profile RCA's, but it'd still be really tight. I know my friends Numark mixer is a little shorter, so that could potentially work. Right now I just need about an inch or a little more room to fit it all in.


    And about the internal grounding? I don't know the first thing about it except that it exists, and seems like a good idea. The ground wires are def. a pain in the ass.

    All and all though, it's pretty simple. I want to get a good laptop stand that has a spot for the Serato Box anyhow, so that's how I plan on keeping it. I unplug just the Serato Box/Cables to bring around with me anyhow (friends have tables) so having it really compact isn't my personal focus. I could see how it would be really helpful if you were moving your entire setup a lot however.

    the only cases that Ive seen that to work in is the huge ata cases that hold the cdj/1200s & 10" or 12". another reason to get a 57 i say

    Thanks a lot for taking the time to do that. My technics mixer is 12 1/64" high.
    And you say you need an inch or more - so it sounds like it might be too tight. Maybe with some right angle short RCA plugs if I can find them.
