    Pioneer have been releasing overpriced crap for years. Its only because they spend so much money on marketing that people think its actually a 'good' brand.

    Pioneer dont make the best 'anything' in the DJing world, with the possible exception of the CDJ2000.

    So much truth in this post. TBH the CDJ2000NXS2 still feels lacking.

    Please share your thoughts on this, good, bad, and ugly! I'm in need of a mixer but all the reviews I've seen so far say it's great or it's crap without really going into the how and why of those opinions. It seems that most reviewers hop on the pioneer bandwagon with little to no justification...

    Do you know of any cheaper dvs solution with proprietary software? This one is cheapest and probably quite decent.

    Didnt know people were buying the plx500 for scratching, thought that turntable was just for listening to vinyl, not dj-ing?

    Traktor Z2. Affordable (especially when compared to Pioneer) and good bang for the buck

    Z2 costs 70% more than DJM250mk2.

    ...and this was my reasoning for even considering the DJM205mk2 in the first place. The Xone 23 has no reverse switch on the crossfader which for me is a must. I'm just looking for a decent scratch mixer that doesn't cost a month's rent. Seems those are a thing of the past.

    Why is a reverse switch a must?
