    Default stripped-down inexpensive 4-channel mixer for home?

    I've looked around and found a few options, but Im looking for opinions.

    I need a 4-channel mixer for home use only, as basically every gig I play has a DJM 800/900.
    I have an audio 8 DJ, so I'm looking for a 4-channel mixer.
    I'm looking for something very cheap, because it's competing with just buying a CMD MM-1 when they come out, and mixing internally when I'm at home. I'd prefer to mix on a hardware mixer at home, but I can't justify that desire enough to buy a high-end mixer. I don't need any effects or beat counters or anything, just an adjustable crossfader and four channels. I'm also not really interested in a moblile DJ/rackmount-style mixer.

    So what do you guys think? What's the cheapest 4-channel mixer you'd recommend.

    (disclaimer before the newbies chime in: for so many reasons, don't waste posts suggesting the Z2, or the hypothetical Z4 for that matter.)

    Thanks a lot.

    Behringer DJX-750, NOX606, or Reloop RMX-40.

    All three of them are VERY solid mixers for home (or even road use, assuming you're the only one who'll be using it and you respect your gear).

    Have a look at the synq smx 2 /or 3 mixers, loads of bang for buck. Theyre actually really good. Im very impressed with mine. Nice eq curves, decent sound, matrix input, sample banks, dsp effects, duck talk on mic, fader and x fader adjustable curves. The company has been around since the 80's doing audio gear

    It's not the gear. It's how you use it.
    limitations are the source of creativity.
    If you don't practice you don't want it.

    You'd feel a fool not to get this... http://nsm05.casimages.com/img/2012/...3359760870.png

    It's practically a Xone 92 with built in effects.

    No effects or other things to go wrong. And much more solid than anything from Behringer.

    +1 for Xone 42 too. If you can find a nice condition used DJM700 that'll also work well for practice since you use DJMs in the club.
