    Default My evolving Vinyl/Digital DJ/Listening setup

    My dual purpose setup, for mixing, or just kicking back and listening. I've been very slowly building this over about 12 years with various parts coming and going as I've been moving around different places.

    The most recent addition is the Kontrol X1, which I wish I'd had sooner. Despite being a total vinyl junkie, it's the most fun thing I've bought in ages. I'm glad I completely skipped CDJs and went to this.

    1 x 1210 Mk2
    1 x 1210 Mk3
    Shure M44-G or Nagaoka Mp-110 carts
    Pioneer DJM-707 (back from the days when I could scratch)
    Traktor Kontrol X1 Mk2
    NI Audio 4 interface

    All running through a Rega Brio-R amp and RS5 speakers.

    Obvious weak link is the mixer, which I'm hoping to change out for a Xone PX5 (and maybe a bozure isolator) or Rane MP2014 fairly soon.

    I'm thinking of selling it if you're interested (not listed on here yet). It's 100% a scratch mixer. Crossfader is really sharp. Cut-in and feel are very adjustable. The EQ section is also good, not full kill but has a convenient on/off switch. It's essentially the 909 without the effects unit.

    It's a bit useless for playing house though. It's really difficult to adjust the crossfader for smooth blends. It either cuts in each channel way too fast, or dips like crazy in the middle. Channel faders are similar, and also quite short. Hence the switch to an xone

    That's a pretty clean setup. I currently have my X1 to the left of the left turntable. I've been wanting to move it next to the mixer.

    I think the PX5 would be the best choice.. best of analog and digital world
