    Default i bought a broken mixer smh

    welp, blinded by the price of a used xone db2, i pretty much rushed over to his house the second i found it locally. i pretty much had my heart set on taking this mixer home before seeing it. admittedly, i didnt touch ALL the buttons but the guy who sold it to me did and i watched them all light up and it seemed okay. there was a hiss coming out of one of the speakers, he claimed was a 'ground loop issue' i didnt think anything of it. So I took it home for $400. After a couple days of mixing, the hiss is still in one of the outputs, the buttons work if you push down hard enough and it might take a few tries, and im having soundcard issues. Im trying to record a mix with audacity and its only recording for about 4 seconds on only 1 deck (ive tried new cables and usb ports with same issue). so get it out of your system first and foremost. I AM A SCRUB FOR THIS. Now that thats out of the way, 1. is this worth fixing? 2. if yes, I'm pretty lost on how to find someone that CAN repair it. I can't help to think a brand new mixer is going to be cheaper in the long run. I still have my old djm600 i wanted to flip to fix the db2 but its looking like i should keep it around on the off chance i need a gig mixer. tips? advice? childish name calling?

    Is the guy not willing to refund you? It seems like ya got ripped off meng.

    Otherwise, contact A&H directly. Dont state that you bought it used. Just give the information that is exactly wrong with the mixer and see what they say.

    At this point, its kind of mute to contact him. But, A&H are pretty responsive.
