    Default Mixer Suggestion

    Hi All,

    I'm about to pick myself up a pair of Denon SC2900's, and would like suggestions on a mixer to go with them. I'm a mobile DJ, so I don't really see the need for 4 channels, but 3 would be good as I would also like to plug in an MP3 player as a backup.

    The main thing that I would like would be at least 1 mic input (preferably 2) with EQ controls (Hi/low would be fine, Hi/Mid/Low better)

    Doesn't have to have a built in soundcard, but once again would be nice (I have an audio 2 if I ever wanted to use it with traktor etc.)

    I've looked at the Denon X600, and the Numark X5, sp far I'm leaning towards the X600, as I also have a set of turntables and using this I could use traktor scratch (I don't use them very often, only because it's a pain in the ass to set everything up with VDJ and my MC600, but I would like to use them more!)

    Both seem suitable though, just wondered if anybody else had any other suggestions?

    The Behringer DDM4000 is fantastic for it's price.

    It also has mic input with Low/Mid/High EQ

    The DJM-250 just hit like $230 on Amazon, and it really the gold standard for "affordable mixer." The mic section is a bit basic, however, so you might want to see if it's enough for your mobile setup needs. Other than that, you really can't get anything better for less than about $900, let alone it's price bracket.

    the denon dnx1100 would get you your 4 channels & 2 mic channels you talk about for a 100 less than the dnx600 and also has a cool matrix style input selection tool making changes to setup much easier... or something like the ecler nuo 4.0 also has two mic channels for a similar price point. both of those and the numark x5 are rated amongst the best for the price category you're looking at...

    as a very recent convert to Ecler maybe try the Nuo 2.0 or the 3.0 (both can kind handle three chanels, though the 3.0 is more dedicated with the extra fader channel) ?

    Also if you're in the UK, Dawsons have a few of the DJM 250s back in stock (at just 179 !!)

    buy a cheap 2 channel mixer from radio shack if you don't need all the bells, whistles, channels...

    If you can find one a Mackie D.2 is amazing. you can get them on ebay now for around $150...I traded mine for a vestax 07pro, regretting it a little now

    I've always been a fan of the Rane Empath. Particularly the rotary version.
