    Default Traktor Kontrol S2 vs Reloop Terminal Mix 2 vs other 2-deck controllers?

    Hi! i want to buy my very first dj controller but i dont know which one... i was thinking about kontrol s2 or terminal mix 2, in price they are pretty same in my country:
    Traktor Kontrol S2 - 470 euros (pro software included)
    Reloop Terminal Mix 2 - 400 euros (software not included, cost of Serato DJ in euros: around 100)

    Please guys help me, which is better (jogwheels, features, software, etc, etc.), or maybe other controller in this price is good too? thanks in advance. What do you think also, 2 channel terminal mix 2 will be fine, or maybe another 2 channels would be useful now or in future?

    S2 is probably your best bet because its a NI product. And it comes with traktor...a NI product the layout is great, construction is nice and in my opinion, the jogs were better than the Vci 400 se.

    Denon MC3000. Super solid construction...built like a tank. Good Sound. Plus it has dedicated filter AND gain knobs in addition to the 3 EQ knobs for each channel, unlike the S2 which ONLY has a gain encoder and no dedicated filter knob.

    thank you guys, denon mc-3000 seems good but what do u think also about terminal mix from reloop mixed with the new serato dj?? i must add that i really need good jogwheels for scratching (not as good as in vinyl, because im dont want to scratch only)?

    Can't speak for the terminal mix as I don't own one and I don't want to be one of those people that blindly bashes a piece of equipment without ever having used one. I own the MC3000 and can speak about it and will only make comments on the other equipment based on features I can see (e.g., number of knobs/inputs/outputs etc.). The terminal mix 2 does have larger jog wheels than the MC3000. it does have a separate filter and Gain knob, which I like...can't speak to the construction or feel of the unit though as I have never used one.
