    Default Need help picking a new mixer.

    I want new mixer around $1200 mark. I spin 2x vinyl and run 2x cdj's (mainly vinyl) but never more than two at a time but I still like 4 channels for some reason. I don't use midi, dvs or effects. I use mainly channel fader for cuts as I spin hip hop/funk but not a great scratcher. Tossing idea of empath, xone 92, ecler evo 4 but every review I read changes my mind. So if ya got a moment hit me up with your thoughts.. Cheers

    (Had pioneer 909 lived it but alcohol related accident killed it, so bought ddm4000 as fill in.)

    If I had 1200 to spend I'd get a Xone 92. Perhaps it will be my next purchase as well.

    Don't get why he should need to buy a 8 channel mixer when he wants to use 4.
    Anyways Xone DB2 / 92, Ecler EVO4, DJM850.
    They are all great mixers and it just comes down to a personal preference.

    Well I would've suggested the Zero4, but it's the same price as the Zero8 and lacks the Kaoss pad; the Zero8 is about the same size as a "normal" 4 channel mixer anyway.

    Anyways, Zero4 and 8 had lots of drivers problems, connect to the computer only via firewire and are kinda outdated.
    Not recommended imo.
