    Default Intro to CDJ's

    Hey guys, I have decided that it would be smart for me to have cdj's at home and I was looking at the Pioneer xdj-700. I was wondering if it would be smarter for me to purchase 2 decks and 1 2 channel mixer with effects or a 4 channel mixer with effects and then slowly get more cdj's?

    Thanks Guys!

    I'd say go for a two channel mixer at first. Unless you absolutley, 100% know you'll need four decks, there's no reason to buy a four channel mixer. Buy a good two channel mixer with a good resell value if you think a four channel mixer might be in your future.

    A decent 2 channel mixer is not much less than a 4 channel now-a-days. Go ahead and get the 4 channel.

    Reloop RMX80's are decent. You can get a used DJM800 for around $4-500. If your credit is decent, financing is always an option.

    Avoid Behringer, Numark, Gemini, and Stanton for mixers.

    I will probably go for the 600 since I am on a budget and then gradually get more cdj's. Is there a discussion for setting up everything? I am pretty new to all this.

    Thanks man! Also do you think it would better to invest more into some cdj-900's or stick with the xdj-700's?

    xdj700 has way more features however used xdj1000s go for the same price as new xdj700s on ebay. check my thread a couple posts down about the xdj700s
