    Default Denon DN-X500 or other rackmount 19" mixer?

    I've checked around a lot. I think I am going to get a Denon DN-X500. I like everything except for the secondary mic input. I want one mic for me, and I want to hook up my dual wireless mic for karaoke. Can't find anything that has 3 good mic inputs, so I figure I can use the blend feature and go out through TRS and get my two Karaoke mics on one channel.

    I was looking into the behringer nox1010 and the VMX 1000 and the DX2000 USB.

    I was also looking at the Numark C3

    The C3 would replace my laptop mixer because it can mix two laptops and that's how I DJ my main mix is off of two laptops so I can pre-listen and get my transitions perfect.

    However, If I was using my USB inputs I would have to kill one of the mics, also there is no input or level indicater on the channels. Over all I like the features of the Behringers and the Denon much better. I figure if that's the case then I should go Denon becasue Behringer is sometimes Cursed.


    Trying to take advantage of current sales so quick input would be much appreciated.

    My budget is no more than $600, prefereable no more than $400,
    I need to mix 3 mics, two karaoke/cd players, two laptops (That I can patch a mixer into) and two Numark V7s that have their own mixer. I don't necessarily have to mix all of these things at once, but it's the gear that I have. The 3 mics will be every gig, and the V7s will replace the two laptops depending on the gig.

    Late for Turkey at Grandma's...

    Thanks guys.

    It's 100 bucks more than your max, but it's a steal. Still has the standard year warranty as well.

    3 mic inputs, with 6 in soundcard, with a separate XLR zone output.

    Thanks for the input. I hadn't gotten any feedback in a number of forums so I got the Denon DX-N500
    Picked it up for $320 new and shipped. Could have gotten a used one for $270 but figure it wasn't worth it.

    The extra 50 bucks for the piece of mind is money well spent to me! Have fun with your new pR0n
    Cheers!
