    Big thanks to everyone that I met at the NAMM show. Especially with everyone that I worked with from the DJTT forums. Mike, Andrew, B33SON, Dj Phaded, Nemonic.

    Did anyone see anything they may actually buy ?

    I like the new Denon X1600. TSP Certified and only 8 or 900 smackers.

    I am in desperate need for a new controller right now and was considering the Vestax TR-1 controller for Traktor Pro. It does not have jog wheels or a crossfader, so that is something that I would have to get used to. Crossfader I can live without, since I'm not really a scratch DJ, but jog wheels are something that I have been accustomed to. So I'm still really on the fence with this controller.

    If i were in the market for a mixer, I'd seriously the Denon X1600. Its certainly a solid mixer and at that price point, it should be seriously considered by anyone who needs a 4 ch mixer with full EFX functions similar to the Pioneer DJM-800 (800-900 bucks vs. 1300-1400 is a big difference!).

    I also like the Rane 62. Its a solid piece of hardware, but running around 2500-2600 bucks, its also a very expensive one too.

    The American Audio VMS4 looks very nice, but it's priced at 700 USD... if it was 500 USD i would def buy it...

    I say that because i dont like on board soundcards competing with midi messages on a single USB Cable, i would use the VMS4 with an external firewire audio interface. The same problem happens with Xone DX (but in this case we are talking about a lot more money :P )

    Since i would not use the audio interface and outputs on VMS4, I think the 500USD would be fair.

    I think the street price of the VMS4 is 500 USD. Any cheaper and it would probably be not worth considering.

    Same here, I'm in the market for a new contoller but I did see anything that blew me away. I was impressed with the DJ Tech gear, I was the usolo fx.

    To be honest I wish vestax would make a updated version of the VCI100. Something like taking a 100, 300, and TR-1 and putting in one unit.

    vestax would def be the best company to achiev a pro result. I love their hardware, VCI is still the most solid controller out there for me

    I like the new 7 series controller but I need to play with it more to get a real feel for it.
