    Default Pioneer DJM 600

    So I have been looking for an analog mixer and came across a pioneer djm 600 on craigslist for $300. Is this worth it, if it's in working condition? I know it's no 800 but at that price i figured it was a good deal. I would appreciate some input before I jumped on this. I will be using DVS with it so I'm not to worried about effects but was mostly curious how it would work with scratching, recording, etc. Thanks in advance.

    The cross fader on the DJM-600 isn't great for scratching. Other then that it would be ok. $300 is bout right on price, but of course see if you can get it any lower

    would you think the crossfader would work better than the stock one on the s4 though?

    it's all based on personal preferences. there's no bad/good answer. DJM600 sounds WAY better/natural than this fail DJM800 that's for sure.

    not necessarily looking for a right or wrong answer but was more curious if for $300 it would be worth picking up coming from someone who just got turntables and is looking on investing in an analog mixer.

    i'm actually into pio mixers but really don't like the djm600, had one for a while.

    I'd say the 800 was decent, digital music sounded crisp on it. Analogue not so much...

    300$ is a really decent price and smart choice for what you'll use it for.

    We've had and used one for the last 5 years or so. It definitely shows its age now (came out around 1998 i believe) no problems whatsoever. go for it.
